Will A Fence Increase The Value Of Your Home?

Will A Fence Increase The Value Of Your Home?

 

A question we are constantly asked here at FFO is: “Will building a fence increase the value of your home”?

Well, that is actually a very important question, so we thought we would answer it in today’s blog post.

Not to sound like a politician, but the answer is not as simple as yes or no.  There are many variables that will determine the answer.  Today, however, let’s take a look at just two of those variables.

Take Into Consideration Your Neighborhood

 

Do you live in a gated community where every home seems to have a vinyl privacy fence?  If this is the case, adding a privacy fence will definitely make your property more attractive to sellers while standing out as fenceless will drop the resale value.

Yet, if in the same neighborhood, you install a chain link fence, it will undoubtedly do nothing for your resale value except possibly lower it as it may appear to be an eyesore in the community.

A fence contractor such as FFO can evaluate your local community and neighborhood and provide the professional advice you need regarding what type of fence will best increase your home worth.

 

Consider The Price

 

Many people take every opportunity to save a few dollars.  This makes fiscal sense unless you are purchasing a product that won’t last.

Many fence companies install fences that are made from less than stellar materials or are built with shoddy workmanship.

And while you may save money on the front end, you will end up losing a fortune if your fence begins to sag, rot, etc, in a year or two.

A fence that is not maintained properly will 100% reduce the resale value of your home.  Your property is much too important to scrimp with a fly-by-night company.

At Florida Fence Outlet, we have been in business for many years and boast thousands of happy customers.

 

Final Words

 

So will adding a fence increase the value of my home?  In most cases, the answer is yes.  A fence is invaluable to families with kids and dogs.  Just make sure the fence matches your neighborhood.

Why Can’t You Give Me a Fence Quote Over the Phone?

 

Why Can’t You Give Me a Fence Quote Over the Phone?

So you want a fence quote over the phone?

You’ve heard the expression, “A picture is worth a thousand words”? You may need to use that many words just to explain what we need to give you a quote over the phone. OR, we can come take a look at your property and save you some time and hopefully some money.

You see, cost varies, of course, by the type of fence you order but also includes the time it takes to install. And that depends on the size and type of area you want to enclose. Most people don’t have that information at their fingertips. And even though land surveys and county documents can be helpful in getting some of that information, they don’t show the shape of the land or any impediments to putting up a fence.

Getting a quote over the phone is like asking your neighbor what they paid for their fence. Think of the many reasons why you wouldn’t trust the price of your fence being the same as what they paid: prices may have gone up or down since they purchased their fence; maybe their yard isn’t exactly the same layout as yours; maybe you don’t even like how their fence looks. The point is, there most likely will always be some reason not to trust a phone estimate. I know you are thinking that prices can change even if we come out and do an estimate, right? True, but if the prices change after we give you an estimate it will usually be because you changed something, not us.

In short, there is such a variety in quality, types of materials, fencing construction, and techniques of installation that your best bet to save time and money is to get an estimate from the experts in the field.
