LAS VEGAS -- The do it yourself trend to home renovation is taking off and customers are saving hundreds in the process.
From landscaping to painting, Rebecca Smith is getting ready to tackle it all. She just bought a foreclosed home that needs a lot of work.
"A lot of cosmetic stuff that needed to be done. Leaking faucets, plumbing, the whole nine yards," she said.
Instead of hiring a professional, Smith says saving money is more of a priority. In an economy that forces people to watch every penny, the do it yourself trend is a necessity.
Home Depot supervisor Corwyn Frierson says the majority of their new customers are either fixing up a foreclosed home they just bought or are improving a home they're forced to stay in to make life a little more enjoyable.
