Where are tradies in high demand right now

In 2022, do you want to take on a renovation project? You may have observed that tradies are difficult to locate right now. So, if you live in one of the suburbs mentioned in this week's post, you might want to get started as soon as possible...

If you’ve ever watched The Block, you’ll know that having a competent team of trustworthy tradies may mean the difference between a successful renovation and everything going to hell in a handbasket.

But where are all of the good tradies at the moment?

You may have noticed that quotes are up, phones are going ignored and unreturned, and wait times are through the (unfinished) roof if you’ve tried to find one recently for your personal remodel project.

It turns out that Australians have been spending record sums on renovations, resulting in a boom in tradie demand.

“More time spent at home combined with ultra-low lending rates, government handouts, and greater household savings created the right combination of elements to fuel heightened demand for renovations,” says Eleanor Creagh, senior economist at PropTrack.

So, where in Australia is the greatest need for tradies?

Some sections of the property and finance world are busier than others, as is the case with most things.
