If you’re like most people, you’re wondering whether you should make a few home improvements before you put your house on the market.
- Making minor bathroom upgrades
- Doing major bathroom renovations
- Taking care of small kitchen improvements
- Doing major kitchen renovations
- Replacing vinyl siding
- Upgrading existing landscaping
But what about a deck, patio, or porch? Adding one can boost your home’s curb appeal, but is it worth it financially?
Should You Add a Deck, Patio, or Porch Before You Sell Your Home in Tampa Bay?
The nationwide average cost to add a 16-foot-by-20-foot deck to a home is about $11,000. The average rate of return is about 90 percent, but every market is different. Buyers’ preferences can vary from neighborhood to neighborhood, too, which means you’ll want to talk to your Tampa Bay Realtor® before you decide whether adding a deck to your home will help you sell it quickly (and at the right price).
While most buyers aren’t put off by a deck, patio, or porch, there may not be as many who are as excited about it as you are. (After all, you’ve lived in your home for how long without a deck and done just fine?)
