A new study shows that the average family home improvement budget can easily fall under $150 per year.
The study, conducted by an independent contractor, found that an average family of four spends $3,639 on home improvements in 2017, and that it can take nearly four years for those improvements to come into fruition.
That means a $150 budget can cover almost half of the cost of a typical home improvement project.
“This is the best time to be an owner,” said Chris Wills, the CEO of Home Improvement Network, which conducted the study.
“It’s the perfect time to start a business.”
The average home improvement plan costs $250,000 per year, but Wills said that number drops significantly for small homes.
The average price for a home improvement is $500,000, but the average price per square foot for a small home is $2,000.
The costs can even vary based on whether a homeowner has a basement or attic, and the average home maintenance plan will also include utilities and the installation of a roofer.
The cost of an average home is about $1,600 per year to repair a house, Wills noted.
The report also found that the cost to get a project completed is significantly lower for homes with no plumbing, because that usually means a less expensive home improvement.
That’s because it takes less time for a plumbing fixer to fix a leak or to install a water line.
The report also notes that homeowners with no other repair projects to pay for tend to have lower insurance costs than homeowners with other repairs, such as a home health aide or a roofing contractor.
Home Improvement Network says it will be testing the results of its survey, which will be made available to the public next month.
It plans to release a detailed report with more specific numbers, including the average cost per home improvement completed.

The survey results show that home improvement projects can save homeowners an average of $50 per year on their home improvement costs.
Wills also noted that homeowners can save about $50 a year by avoiding certain home repairs.
For example, homeowners with a leaky or blocked ceiling can skip that particular project because it will not affect the value of their home.
In addition to homeowners, many home improvement companies will pay for plumbing work.
Willing said that he and his company had no complaints about plumbing in the home improvement business.
Wills said he thinks the survey’s findings will help homeowners make informed decisions about home improvement plans.
He said that there is still a lot of work to be done to ensure that homeowners are getting the best deals on home improvement repairs, but that he thinks it is a good time to get into the business.
