NSBRC Survey - 2022

Each year The National Self Build & Renovation Centre produces a survey in partnership with the National Custom & Self Build Association (NaCSBA).

The 2022 survey was completed by 644 people and provides a detailed view of who are the people undertaking substantial homebuilding projects, what motivates them, and what barriers they are currently faced with.

We asked new questions this year to understand the impact that the ‘cost of living’ and ‘energy crisis’ are having on self commissioned homes.

You can view our Press Release here – produced 31st October 2022.

In addition, we have produced a helpful infographic, which summarises the key findings and contains more details on our 2022 findings and what matters to self-builders and home improvers in 2022.
