My wife and I decided to sell our house because I received a new job offer in another state. Unfortunately, there were many homes for sale in our neighborhood already. Our real estate agent suggested we make some improvements to our home in an effort to make it stand out and attract buyers.
We considered many types of projects to improve our home on the outside. However, we determined that the project that would most alter the looks of our home for the better was updating our back deck.
Our back deck was constructed of real wood and had been stained and painted numerous times over the years. There were various boards sagging and others that were completely gone due to rot. The whole contraption was so flimsy that we didn’t even use the deck any longer.
Once we decided that a new deck was the project we wanted to invest in, we began looking for types of decking. We heard about Rhino Deck products, which are made out of a composite material that comes in many natural-looking colors. Our realtor agreed that this was the best way to go.
Since I am not gifted when it comes to using tools and constructing anything, we called in a professional. Once the deck was constructed, we bought some patio furniture and decorated the deck. Thankfully, this improvement seemed to help: Our home got its first offer the very next showing. I am so thankful the deck was the improvement we decided to make.
