Cedar Privacy Fences Offer Home Value and Beauty
Whether you’re in your forever home or you plan to put your home on the market in a couple of years, you may ask, “Do privacy fences increase home value?”. An attractive and quality privacy fence, like those made of cedar, will offer many benefits and can actually raise the value of your Texas home.
If you’re having your home assessed, the appraiser will take your fence into consideration. Was it made of quality materials? Was it well constructed? Is it attractive? Does it serve a purpose? Will a privacy fence increase home value? Here are a few reasons why the appraiser may decide it will.
An attractive and well constructed privacy fence offers beauty and curb appeal, whether designed specifically for the front yard or built for the backyard. A tall privacy fence can also obstruct an unsightly view.
A backyard privacy fence can serve as the backdrop for your family’s oasis and as a place to retreat for an afternoon or evening of fun and relaxation. It also offers concealment and security, so no one will be peaking in but they will be keeping out (unless invited in, of course).
If you’re placing your home on the market soon, keep in mind that pet owners often look for homes with backyard fences where their pets can get some exercise. It is easier to buy a home that already has a fence installed than to buy one and install the fence later. Home buyers appreciate having had it done for them.
When your fence is installed by a reputable professional, you can be assured of quality, durability and dependability that will withstand many years of wear and weather.
Certain fencing materials do not offer the attractiveness, durability or ease of care as cedar wood. Cedar is exceptionally strong and lasting compared to other woods such as pine. It also requires little maintenance, since it does not need to be chemically treated, sealed or painted. Staining is optional to keep the bright color, if desired. It is also naturally insect resistant. Overall, natural cedar is beautiful as well as durable, making it ideal for a privacy fence.
Do privacy fences increase home value? The answer may be yes when installed properly and of attractive and durable materials, such as cedar wood.
