A New Fence Can Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal Considerably

fence repairInstalling a new fence is one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to increase curb appeal and entice potential homebuyers.

Yet many homeowners neglect their fences, spending thousands on new landscaping or a new roof instead.

Buyers’ first impressions color their overall opinions, and a fence that rivals the Leaning Tower of Pisa might very well be the only thing they recall about your home.

Fortunately, rectifying the appearance of your long-neglected fencing doesn’t need to be a huge undertaking. Depending on the materials you choose, your new fence can be gracing your home in a matter of days.

What Kind of Fence Do You Want?

Don’t just replace your old fence with a new one of the same variety; this is a wonderful opportunity to hand-pick fencing material that complements your home.

The appearance of your fence sets the tone for what buyers expect from your home’s interior.  Choose fencing that visually harmonizes with your home and sets the appropriate expectations.

For example, a timber picket or wrought-iron fence speaks of a staid, elegant home. Concrete fencing, if done well, sets a contemporary, up-to-date mood.

Bamboo is the obvious choice for eco-conscious homeowners and will appeal to the new trend in homebuyers.

Depending on your climate, your fence may be subjected to extremes of hot and cold each year, so make sure that your chosen fencing material can hold up to the elements.

A pretty fence that shows the marks of weather after only a few months is not a wise investment.

How Much Will Your New Fence Cost?

Figure out how much you can afford to spend, and then install the highest quality fence possible within that budget.

Also, keep in mind that your new fence will certainly attract buyers and may even raise the asking price for your home, so you should at least recap your initial investment.

A high-quality, attractive fence sends the message that you are a responsible homeowner with good taste.

Whether you choose concrete, brick, timber or some other material, a new fence can take your home from drab to fab overnight.
