Brand new research from London based PropTech startup HomeHero into the attitudes of consumers and their homes has found some interesting results about attitudes to cleaning, maintenance and paying bills ..
The survey of 2000 adults found that around two thirds of Brits that work full time (65%) don’t always feel on top of their home admin. A year of uncertainty has seen stress levels across the UK soar, amplified by the blurred lines between home and work, with many people continuing to work remotely. The survey found 40% of London residents listed ‘arranging tradesmen’, like plumbers and electricians, the most stressful aspect of running their homes. (YouGov, Feb 2021)
HomeHero uncovered that one in three Brits (33%) aged 18-34 put off paying their household bills. Of those people aged 18-34, that put off paying their bills, only 43% attributed it to financial reasons, like waiting for payday. Whilst an astonishing 63% attributed putting off paying their bills to not understanding them, finding them stressful or simply not having the time. (YouGov, Feb 2021)
Kenny Alegbe, Founder and CEO, HomeHero, said: “Our research has shown that as many as one in three people put off paying their bills. Surprisingly, this isn’t down to lack of funds, or waiting until payday – but rather lack of understanding, or stress. Our operating system for the home, HomeHero, can help alleviate some of the everyday stress of running a home to ensure everything you need is available to access in one easy to navigate system.”
