Five Ways That a Fence Can Improve Your Property Value
Posted January 4, 2021 to Before You Buy: Tips, Advice, Checklists.
It’s probably no surprise that fences are one of the most requested projects from homeowners at Sierra Structures. Fences are one of those home improvements that will be useful and also improve property value.
Here are five ways a fence can improve property value:
Define property: Possibly the most basic function of a fence is to define the property. While some people think it might make their property look smaller, the opposite can be true. People’s minds will draw a boundary where it makes sense, usually at the end of a patio or other defined line. By fencing in the property, that visual line is extended and the full potential of the property is showcased.
Adds security: Fences keep people and predatory animals away. The added obstacle of a fence is often enough to dissuade unsavory characters and it adds a good measure of safety to a home. This security adds to a home’s value.
Adds privacy: Wood and vinyl fences can provide a lot of privacy in urban, rural, and suburban settings. The visual and physical barrier dissuades passerby from lingering and gives the impression of a well-maintained, secure homestead where intruders are not welcome.
Property upgrade: A good fence is an asset to a home. They not only boost the value of the home but also perform a useful function as soon as they’re installed. With so many pet owners in the Triangle area, an already-fenced property is worth more than a similar one that would need to be fenced.
Adds style: With so many styles of fencing available, it’s easy to find the right fence for your home. Our customers can pick from a wide range of materials, including wood, aluminum, and vinyl, and customize each to suit their needs and personal aesthetic.
A fence is a great way to add to a home’s property value, and as a bonus, there’s not a lot of disruption to daily life for one to be installed. Contact Sierra Structures to start on your fence project!
