Actually, there are many ways homeowners chip away or sink the value of their homes. This MSN Real Estate slide show outlines 14, including keeping an above-ground pool, not getting proper remodeling permits, and closing off the porch.

The comment about high fences and enclosed patios is not true in all parts of the country.  Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex properties tend to all have high wood fences unless they’re in an HOA and the home backs to a greenbelt. etc.
