The recent Aviva 'homespenders' study showed:
HOMEBUYERS SPEND £10,000 ON THEIR HOMES IN THE FIRST YEAR
- Adds up to £6.8 billion across all homebuyers in England annually
- One in five fits a new kitchen in the first year
- But only one in twelve invests in home security
Research carried out by ICM research in November 2015 with a sample of 989 people who had purchased a house in the UK in the last five years.
English Housing Survey 2013/14 shows that 679,000 owner occupiers moved home in the last 12 months.
