The Courier-Mail - Property - - REALESTATE NEWS -

QUEENS­LAN­DERS may boast of be­ing handy home ren­o­va­tors but most house hunters pre­fer the job al­ready done, ac­cord­ing to realestate.com.au.

In­ter­nal data off the na­tion’s lead­ing real es­tate web­site shows the term ‘ren­o­vated’ is the most com­mon home im­prove­ment key­word search in the last year.

‘Ren­o­vated’ fea­tured in 11.8 per cent of realestate.com.au prop­erty searches com­pared to the term ‘ren­o­va­tor’ which had been used just 1.72 per cent in that time or ‘ren­o­vate’ at 1.42 per cent.

Over­all, the Sun­shine State’s in­ter­est in home im­prove­ment is still on the rise with re­lated on­line searches ac­count­ing for 16.6 per cent of key­words used.

In com­par­i­son, 2011 data from realestate.com.au shows home im­prove­ment terms were used in only 11.65 per cent of searches.

Roy Mor­gan re­search re­leased in De­cem­ber 2015 showed 1.7 mil­lion peo­ple (44 per cent) who clicked on realestate.com.au were home im­provers while 7365 mil­lion in­tended to fix up their home in the next 12 months.
