When searching for a home, some filters often have a checkbox for “fenced yard” or “no fence,” to help homebuyers filter out the results based on their needs. Typically, most people are searching for homes with a fence. If a fence is part of the filters, it does have significance, even though some real estate agents will claim a fence doesn’t increase home values. Fences actually cause you to increase the curb appeal of your home. While newer, custom fences look better, you can still help your yard if you take the time to paint an old wood fence, or focus on upgrades here and there.
If you want to sell your home soon, investing in a nice fence is a good idea. We already mentioned how a fence enhances curb appeal, but it can help to increase the safety of the yard. Homeowners insurance companies often factor in discounts for fenced yards. Here are some of the common fencing materials to choose from:
- Chain-link aluminum fencing
- Wood fencing
- Vinyl fencing
- Privacy fencing
- Iron fencing
- Composite and Trex fencing
Of course, there are other types of fencing to consider. Contact Bronco Fence to learn about custom fencing solutions.
Know Your Property Lines
Prior to any fence installation, you must have clear understandings of your property lines. The last thing you want to do is accidentally placing the fence over your property line, causing your neighbor to be upset, and you’ll need to rip it out and fix it. Since it can be hard to find your property line, call our Kaysville fencing company to do surveying and access city boundary proofs to ensure the fence is being placed on the right property.
Adding a Fence Before Selling?
If you do not have a fence, should you add one? This is really a question to address with your real estate agent. Different areas in the state have certain demand, which may mean you can get by without adding a fence. Others may recommend you add a fence to give the listing a little more appeal. No matter what you decide, Bronco Fence is here to help!
