Younger Generations ‘Most Likely To Have DIYed’ In Lockdown

Those who are classed as Millennials or part of Gen Z are most likely to have undertaken DIY projects during the Covid-19 lockdown, new research has revealed.

The Express and Star shared the findings of a study carried out by Aldermore Bank, which revealed that 38 per cent of people have tried their hand at DIY tasks during lockdown. However, this increases to 60 per cent of those aged 18 to 34 years old, which is a mix of those in the Millennial and Gen Z age groups.

People aged 35 to 54 were the next most likely to have started a DIY project in this period, or to be planning to begin one, with 57 per cent of those in this age group fixing up an element of their home.

Head of mortgage distribution at Aldermore Bank Jon Cooper said that it was “brilliant” to see younger people making changes to their properties.

“Making a house a home can be rewarding in itself, but it can also bring many additional benefits in improving the saleability and value of a property,” he explained.

For those who are looking for ways to boost the value of their home and make it more appealing to prospective buyers, it might be comforting to learn that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to have an impact.
