Fencing your property is one of the best ways to increase its value. A fence is a great addition to your home and, without one, the resale value of your home may decline. If you plan to add a fence to your home, make sure it is done correctly. You may be wondering – how can adding a fence can increase your home’s value?
Adding a fence increases the value of your home, especially, depending on the location your property is in. In some parts of the country, an appealing cedar fence can increase the value of a home by about $1500-2000. Privacy fences made out of concrete can also increase a home’s value by $3000-5000. This is definitely important to consider – especially if you’re considering a resale.
Buyers With Kids and Pets
One important consideration for potential homeowners with kids is ensuring the safety of their children. A home that is already fenced is an added advantage to any buyer who is concerned about the safety of their children. Many potential homeowners also have pets – and with a fence, their pets can have their own domain without any major safety concerns. Although the style may not be as important to those worried about safety, the length of one’s fence is fairly significant. Potential buyers like these know that it can cost thousands of dollars to purchase and install a new fence and they are likely to pay more for a house that is already fenced in.
One obvious benefit of a fence is the immediate improvement to your privacy. A fence can prevent unwanted visitors and keep you safe from prying eyes. Privacy is appealing to a lot of homeowners and buyers and the added expense is often worth it.
A nicely built fence can greatly improve the appearance of your front yard, as well as your home’s exterior. If your home’s backyard is not appealing, then a privacy fence can hide that fact easily enough.
Installing a fence properly can raise the value of your home. When fences are installed properly, they are durable and can actually withstand the elements. DIY fence installations often result in poorly setup fences that can cost time and money to remove. In the end, it’s best to get your fence installed by a professional.
A fence adds value to your home, but the monetary value added is different for every individual home. Fences are an added advantage for homeowners with kids and pets as well as those interested in privacy. We at Central Fence would love to help you get fitted with a fence you’ll love.
