Sell Your Home – Adding A Deck Makes Your Home Appealing

sell your home

If you’re planning to list your North Texas home for sale, you’ll definitely want to make the outdoors as appealing as possible. One way to do this, if you don’t already have one, is to build a deck in the backyard area. Homeowners in the Dallas area love to relax on the deck and enjoy the warm weather, or entertain friends and neighbors. It’s a relatively inexpensive way to add incredible appeal and value to your home!

How much will it cost? On average, expect to spend $6,000 to around $10,000 to build your new deck; however, consider factors that impact cost such as the materials you choose and the size (square footage) of the deck. Considering it would cost tens of thousands to build on an addition, a deck is a great way to keep interested buyers around and make your home more attractive than your neighbors’. No plumbing or electrical wiring necessary – and you’ll recoup most of the cost of building your deck when you sell, about 85% or more!

Decks are typically made of wood, which lends to the beauty of the landscape, unlike a concrete patio. They’re also easily built regardless of how level your property is or whether it’s on a slope or hill, and integrate beautifully with flowers, trees, shrubs, and other landscape. It’s an inviting, welcoming space that’s perfect for relaxing or entertaining, while providing extra room for outdoor activities such as grilling or having a party. Maintenance is simple, too, another reason people love decks.

If you’re looking to sell your home and you don’t currently have a deck in the backyard, you may want to consider this relatively simple project that will result in great returns!

    Kevin did a fantastic job for our home sale and purchase. He always was available to answer questions, guide us through the selling process and overcame obstacles when we ran into them during the selling process. Overall, I would recommend Kevin and Your Home Free team for your next home sale and purchase.

    Casey was recommended to us by a family member. We were really nervous about selling our house in the middle of the COVID-19 shelter in place time period. We needed to sell within a month or so in order to proceed with our new build that we started back in 2019. With this in mind, Casey was ready to take the challenge.Casey and Bill showed up to the house on time, and we were all on the same page for listing time, price, and details. The next day, pictures of the house were taken, and the following day our house was on the market. The next 4 days, we had over 1,000 views, 100 saves, 12 showings, and 4 offers! None of that would have been possible without the expertise of the photos, details, and networking of Your Home Free. After a couple of negotiations with the assistance of Casey, we sold the house for a full price offer! Our house was on the market for less than a week! We are so glad we went with Bill and Casey, and would recommend them for any home sell!

    Kevin was the ultimate expert and everything you could look for in a DFW real estate agent. He was extremely up to date on listings, areas of interest, and most importantly proper pricing in the zip codes in which I was searching. Along with his real estate knowledge, Kevin is just an all around great guy and easy to work with. Response times were immediate and follow up just as timely. I will undoubtably use Kevin and his team with all my future home purchases!
