Tradies are in demand

A good team of reliable tradies can be the difference between a home reno project running smoothly and everything going to hell in a handbasket.

But where in the world are all the good tradies right now?

If you’ve tried to source one recently for your own reno project, you might’ve noticed that quotes are up, calls are going unanswered, and wait times are through the (unfinished) roof.

According to PropTrack senior economist Eleanor Creagh, it turns out Australians have been spending record amounts on renovations, which in turn has led to a surge in tradie demand.
