One DIY tip doesn’t necessarily equal another; thus, beware which tips and tricks you try out, as some DIY jobs can actually bring your home’s value down!
Like converting or removing a bedroom. Seeing as a house’s value comes from its number of rooms, merging two small bedrooms can actually make your property value take a dip – some experts say by as much as 20%.

And stay away from Japanese Knotweed, unless you want to risk it decreasing the value of your garden and yard by approximately 15%.
What your house looks like on the outside is people’s first impression of your home and lifestyle. That means that anybody looking to try out easy DIY tips need to take into account any faded, cracked, or peeling paint visible on their house’s façade.
