Home Extension & Renovation Cost Index
While there is little in the way of change compared to the previous month, we have received notice of input price changes that will have an impact on our December index.
HIA’s November 2013 Forecast for Housing Renovations activity shows an expected lift in 2013/14 of 3.5% nationwide (NSW 2.9%) from prior year, however this is coming on the back of a decline in 2012/13 of 6.9% (NSW 5.9%).
