Home owners were found to be knocking thousands of pounds worth off their homes by doing their own DIY work.

Researchers have found that 9 out of 10 home buyers decide against buying a home due to shoddy work the home owners do to the property. This shoddy work can lower your house by 11 per cent which averages to about £30,800 on the average English home… £60,149 in London.

The most off putting DIY flaws were dodgy wiring and ill-placed plug sockets… they are as dangerous as they are devaluing and home owners should never do their own wiring. 18 per cent were put off by dodgy or unfinished kitchen units and 5 per cent were put off by squeaky floor boards.
