How much value does a deck and a fence add to a home?
I currently have a townhouse that does not have a deck or a fence

Maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of what it costs. Its rarely a money maker.

Not as much as you would pay to have it put in, but may make a sale easier.

Appraisals consist of a couple of factors, including but not limited to the condition of the home, the square footage and, of course, location. Since a fence is not as permanent as a deck, I would pass on the fence and just invest in the deck.
If privacy is needed on the deck due to it being in close proximity to a next door neighbor, then have the deck designed so that one side has a built in fence feature. Or, perhaps a pergola for shade.
Check zillow.com, using the address of other units in your complex to see what they were sold for to compare how much more money a deck adds to the sale price.
As a buyer, I would rather have a deck than a fence.

Not much. A real estate agent will confirm.
