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!

    I bought a house first and then relied on them to sell. Not only did they save me $3800, they did so in a superior manner. You don't get one realtor when you hire them, you get a team. Gene and Andra were nothing short of awesome, very responsive and always representing my interests. Cannot understand why anyone would use anyone else when buying and selling a house.

    We just purchased our first home with the help of Team Nelson and I can't say enough good things about them! When we wanted to take a few months to look and understand the market, they were happy to go at our slower pace, and when we needed to move quickly to secure the contract they were right on...
