The Block: Real estate lessons
Every time a new season of The Block appears on our TV screens, millions of Australians tune in for the fights, the floorplans and the room reveals.
We’re committed to our readers and editorial independence. We don’t compare all products in the market and may receive compensation when we refer you to our partners, but this does not influence our opinions or reviews. Learn more about Finder .
But The Block also offers valuable lessons and information that can be used by every home owner and renovator.
We've analysed every series of The Block to date to reveal how much difference those renovations really make to the value of your house, and whether there's a "halo effect" from being on the series. You can also check out our archive recaps of the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
