What do you do when you’re trying to sell a house and you need to make some small fixes before it goes on the market?
Well, if you’re Clark Howard, you go to Costco — naturally!
Clark purchased his first house about 40 years ago and has kept it as a rental property for years. When he recently decided to sell the property, the shabby patio was an area of concern. He didn’t want it to be a distraction to potential buyers.
However, his realtor informed him that he could fix up the patio with a simple product available at Costco. Sounds like a win-win for Clark!
Clark purchased a pack of linkable outdoor tiles to place over the existing pavement to see if it would actually make the patio look better.
To complete the project, Clark had to buy 12 packs of tile for around $300 to fully cover the patio floor. He spent an additional $76 for the outdoor furniture.
