Will building a deck add more value to my condo then it costs to build it? Is it worth the investment?
Probably not and you can't assume you may build a deck on a condo as you don't own the outside of the building. This is a project that will need the HOA's approval. In general I would s ... more

How much does a roofdeck add to the value of a walkup condo in Back Bay?
Does anyone have a ballpark figure as to how much people typically offer to compensate the association for roof rights? How is it determined?

Considering building a roofdeck on my condo in Roxbury. What type of premium can I expect above regular rental prices if I add the roofdeck?
I am not really sure a rood deck will bring that much more than what your unit rents for.
