Every time a new series of The Block appears on our TV screens, millions of Australians tune in for the fights, the floorplans and the room reveals. 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.
