Renovator’s delight after 1980s housing boom

Australia is on the brink of a home-renovation boom, worth as much as $40 billion over the next five years, as a huge number of houses near the 30-year-old mark.
Housing Industry Association senior economist Shane Garrett said there was a strong relationship between the age of houses and renovation activity.
“Homes, particularly in the 30 to 35-year age group, do seem to drive a disproportionate amount of renovation work around Australia,” Mr Garrett said.
“It’s a statistical relationship based on past data, but it’s something that stands to logic as well.
“Homes as they age tend to require more remedial work just because of the process of physical degradation, and the style of home tends to look more dated.”
He said the home construction boom of the late 1980s and early 1990s was triggered by strong population growth and lower interest rates.
“Australia became a good place to find work in the second half of the 1980s and the population boost would’ve increased the amount of new home building activity,” Mr Garrett said. “There was also a bit of a surge in house prices, and all those factors conspired to lift house-construction activity to a high level.”
HIA data shows 123,000 new homes were completed in the year to March 1990, one of the highest 12-month totals on record.
Master Builders Association chief executive Denita Wawn said homeowners were expected to spend about $40bn over the next five years on renovations.
“The boom in renovations is good news for residential builders facing a moderation in new-home building,” Ms Wawn said.
“But I would urge state and territory governments to ensure there is adequate investment in training new building apprentices to ensure there is sufficient skilled labour and local capacity to meet the demand over the next five or so years.”
Builder Bob Antic, owner of Space Constructions, said it was likely many of the brick-veneer homes built in the late 1980s would be “knocked over and rebuilt” in coming years.
“It’s very difficult to raise a brick home so if it’s not a character home, they’re likely to do that (demolish and rebuild),” he said.
Mr Antic said houses in the inner city were most likely to be renovated because of the desirability of the location and the cost of buying into the area.
“People are deciding to stay put, so that’s been the driving force behind many renovations in inner Brisbane, and the same would be true of other cities along the eastern seaboard,” he said.
A desire to be closer to the CBD for work and school led the Postma family, Mr Antic’s clients, to buy an East Brisbane property that was “ripe for renovation”.
“It was in a very rundown condition,” Suzanne Postma said.
“If you could just knock it down and start from scratch we would have, but because of its age, it was demolition-protected,” she said.
“We’re happy now that it’s become a beautiful home, and the location is ideal.”
