DIY – Big Business in Christchurch

January 14, 2013

Exterior Renovation

The summer holidays has been a perfect time for home maintenance and Cantabrians are spending up large on property renovation and maintenance.

Placemakers in Christchurch have reported an increase in cash sales – which is a very small part of their business.

“In Christchurch that’s one big construction site forming, and that’s good for our business.”

Christchurch was the strongest market in the country for Placemakers, followed by Auckland, then the South Island as a whole, followed by the lower North Island, which was still a bit subdued.


Property investors are not big spenders on maintenance however renovating their investments is a focus.  PropertyTutors educates on how to renovate your property for long term hold renting or a sale.  There are lots of tricks of the trade and certainly lots of skills can be acquired by the investor by working with PropertyTutors.
