If you’re living in Pasadena, there is a good chance many of your neighbors have fenced in their yards. You may have contemplated investing in building one yourself. If you want to find out the many reasons why building a fence increases your property value, read on!
Why Building a Fence Increases Your Property Value
First and foremost, a fence is designed to provide security. One of the main concerns for buyers looking to purchase a property is “will my family be safe in this area and inside this home?” Adding a fence can bring a layer of protection for your family and act as a deterrent for anyone looking to bother your home. Making your home more secure increases your home’s value in any market.
When dealing with smaller lot sizes like some of the yards of Pasadena, privacy is paramount. Installing a fence is a great way to block out those nosy neighbors, discourage solicitors, and provide your family and home with some respite from prying eyes. Especially when you have close neighbors, this added privacy increases your home’s value.
Fences are not only built to keep some things out; they keep some things in. Buyers with children or pets will see great value in adding a fence to your home. As the number of people (especially millennials) with pets increases yearly, many people are factoring in pet ownership into their home purchases. Having a fenced-in yard for their furry friends or children to run around in gives dog and human parents alike peace of mind and a load of responsibility off their plate.
Fencing options are nearly endless, allowing your creativity to take over. Fencing can complement your outdoor decor and make your home even more unique, potentially increasing its value in the future. At the end of the day, our home is our castle. You want to feel like the space is your own and comfortable – a little slice of paradise. Ultimately, the addition of a fence can help to give you and future buyers that feeling.
