How Fencing Can Increase the Value of Your Property

Fencing Adds Value

Installing a new fence is a relatively inexpensive way to add significant value to your home. Some of the benefits of fencing are obvious; a fence will increase curb appeal, protect your privacy, and provide a solid foundation for landscape design. But what many homeowners don’t realize is that adding a fence can also increase the value of your property.

If you plan to add a fence, there are three major considerations: function, aesthetics, and cost. Function is the most important, as it drives the other considerations. What is the main purpose of your fence? A fence designed primarily to provide privacy can look very different from a fence designed to give children and pets a safe place to play. Once you know why you want a fence, you can decide what it should look like and what your budget is.

With that in mind, let’s focus on three ways a fence can increase the value of your home, and how we can help.

#1— Safety

One of the biggest considerations for families searching for a new home is having an enclosed yard where kids and pets can play safely. Yes, buyers can always add a fence, but wouldn’t a house with a fence already installed be so much nicer? It’s far better to inspire buyers to think “This house already has everything we need!” instead of causing buyers to feel like the house is incomplete and will require additional investment on their end.

#2 — Privacy

     Bring the indoors outside. Whether you want protection from prying neighbours and noisy traffic or simply an enclosed haven from the world, a privacy fence is your best option. Our modern Colorbond Fencing comes in a range of colours and will help turn your yard into an extension of your home whenever you feel inspired to bring the family outdoors or just experience a quiet moment to yourself. It also comes with a 10-year warranty, meaning no headaches or maintenance. And if you’re looking to sell in the near future, potential buyers will be delighted that they won’t have to worry about unexpected repairs.

# 3 — Aesthetics

A fence is essentially an extension of the architecture of your home and is a great way to define your space. It can even make your yard appear larger if designed correctly. Whether installed by itself or in tandem with a landscape redesign, an attractive fence is an excellent foundation for any landscape project and will increase your home’s curb appeal. We have a variety of options and colours to choose from, so you can be sure the style of your fence is a perfect match for your personal aesthetic.

With all these benefits, how much will a fence add to the net value of your property? That ultimately depends on the buyers and their precise needs. But an attractive, private, and safe home is certainly preferable to a home that is dull, exposed, and unprotected. In other words, a stylish fence (like one of our modular walls) can increase buyer enthusiasm for your home, leading it to sell faster and at a higher price, making your new fence a fabulous investment for your family and your future.
