So maybe DIY isn't the answer to all your problems.

Over half of homebuyers would be put off buying a property if they spot botched spots in a home.


 “While DIY projects can be immensely rewarding, homeowners should be wary of attempting DIY beyond their skill-set,” - Simon Ayers.


Some of the most off-putting DIY flaws are;
- Faulty wiring and badly-placed electrical sockets


The worst issues usually found in kitchens, faulty wiring and unfinished kitchens being the worst offenders.
