Top States for Home Improvement - HomeAdvisor
Spending on home improvement products in the U.S. hit $303 billion last year, so it’s clearly a major topic on homeowners’ minds. But to get a better look at just what kind of renovations are being made across America (and who cares the most about these renovations), we used Google Trends and HomeAdvisor data to map the country’s home improvement priorities.
States in and around the mid-Atlantic region demonstrated the highest concentration of home improvement-related interest; in fact, mid-Atlantic states nabbed three of the top-five spots. A clear trend of lower search interest occurs in northwestern states until you get to Washington and Oregon, where search volume increases once again. Consumers in the more populated coastal states show a high level of interest as well.
