Worried About A Fence Hurting Your Property Value? 4 Tips For Making It Work

Getting a fence installed around your property may be one of your priorities on a long list of home improvement projects, but you may still be worried about whether it will be doing more harm than good. This is especially true if you live in an area that has beautiful views since the fence could risk blocking some of the views—leading to a dip in the value of your property. You may also be worried due to the fence seeming out of place or making your home feel separated from the rest of the neighborhood.

Whatever your worries are, you can incorporate some of the following ideas to make sure that the fencing is as much of an improvement as possible. 

Stick to a Similar Style as the Rest of Your Home

With so many choices for fencing, including metal, vinyl, and wood, it's important for you to incorporate elements from the rest of the front of your home. Depending on the age of your home and architectural style, you can incorporate a variety of elements into the fencing so that the finished look fits right in.

Get Inspired by Your Neighbors Homes

If you're worried that your home will stick out after the new fencing is installed, you can take the time to make sure that the fencing fits in with any other homes in your neighborhood. Taking a walk around the neighborhood and checking if any other homes have fencing can help provide you with the insight of how your new fencing should look.

Keep the Views Unobstructed

If part of the appeal of your home is an impressive view out the window, such as a mountain range or river, you need to make sure that you don't bring down the value of your home by covering up the view. With this in mind, you can opt for shorter fencing that can easily be seen over or materials including glass or Plexiglas fencing that allows a clear view outside.

Incorporate the Landscaping with the Fencing

For homeowners that enjoy having a lot of lush greenery in the front or back of their home, the fencing can feel out of place due to its manufactured look. With this in mind, you can make sure that some lush greenery is planted along the border of your fencing, such as shrubs or flowers.

As you prepare for the installation of new fencing around your property, you can benefit greatly by keeping the above tips in mind so that the finished look fits right in.
