7 Reasons You Should Add a Deck Railing on Your Investment Property

Why You Should Add a Deck Railing on Your Investment Property

                 An investment property has a single purpose: to generate income.

And to make money, sometimes you need to spend money. Did you know that by adding something as simple as a deck railing, you not only add aesthetic value to the house, you also increase its perceived value that attracts the best in class tenants who appreciate the added security? Besides, a deck without a railing looks unfinished.

Additionally, adding deck railing to your investment property will pay off in the future should you decide to sell the property and move on to other projects. Decks, especially ones that are complete with attractive railings, can increase your Return on Investment (ROI) by as much as 80% of its original costs when it comes time to sell.  Depending on where the house is located, you could realize an even more impressive return on your investment.

Where decks were once considered a luxury, a significant number of homes now include these structures. While some decks may not include deck railing, and all things being equal, homes with decks attract more homebuyers and renters.

Here are the top 7 reasons for adding deck railing to a house you may be flipping or investment property:

  • Deck railing boosts the value of the investment property
  • Deck railing defines your outdoor living space
  • Deck railing makes it Party Time! – so make sure yours will hold up to the task
