In a world where the value of things either decreases or increases each moment, the need to gear the value of our properties to the latter just cannot be over-emphasized. I personally would love my property to worth over triple its value every 2 months. I don’t know about you. hehehe. A smart person would definitely look out for some diy projects for home improvements.

A friend of mine, whose story happens to be the inspiration behind this post, just sold his house in January 2017, for over double the amount it was worth as at September 2016. What happened? What changed? Did he sweet-talk the Property Management Company into purchasing at a high price? No, No, No.

He did something must people don’t really consider doing. He worked towards appreciating the value of his property. He took on some DIY projects and built some amazing things in his home, by himself!

You too can upgrade your house and make it worth more with some “good & simple” DIY projects.
