I've heard of people extolling the virtues of this. My question though is 'how does it affect re-sale value'?

Is it a 50-50 proposition in the market/ I guess I want to do it, but I don't want to be stupid about it.;

If your mindset is resale value then don't do it.

It works wonderfully, but like anything you can get carried away.

Personally I do it all the time, use the gray stuff.

Also worth noting that, done properly, the gloss can be restored simply by polishing back.

When turning gloss into satin, you're not really "removing" the finish as much as you're just "de-glossing".
It doesn't take much pressure with the pad and shouldn't be done aggressively. You're not trying to get down to bare timber. If you do, well then you're stuffed... :^)
