Many people are afraid to tackle simple DIY jobs around the house because they don't know where to start or fear they may do irreparable damage - especially if they're preparing to sell. But RACV's Handy Andy says many jobs are simpler than you might think - it's just a matter of knowing what you're doing and having the right tools.

As a general rule, Andy says preparation is key when it comes to tackling any home improvement project. Before you start, make sure you are clear on how to complete the job, and double-check you have the right equipment before you begin. You don't want to start rolling paint on your walls only to realise once it's too late that you don't have a drop sheet.
