FenceWorks of Georgia

Things have started looking up for homeowners who are interested in putting their property up for sale. For years now, the market for residential property has been stagnating, with houses lingering for years. But recently, sales have been steadily picking up across the country.

It is becoming very difficult to stand out in the crowd. So, when trying to sell your home, you need to do everything possible to attract those buyers and get them interested in your property. A great way to do this is by increasing your curb appeal with a nice, solid fence.

Take a look at your current fence, does it:

  • Have peeling or faded paint?
  • Have cracked or graying wood?
  • Have missing posts, slats or holes in the perimeter?
  • Looked damaged by weather, falling debris or rot?

Even if your home is in great shape it can be dragged down by an ugly, dilapidated fence. You need your property to project an image of security and beauty. If your fence is in really bad shape, you should definitely fix it up before you ever put your house on the market. If a complete tear down and replacement isn’t in the budget, a professional can do wonders with general repair work.

Another thing to think about when deciding whether or not to repair your fence is the cost of doing nothing. A nice looking, new fence will add value to your property but a badly maintained fence can actually drag your value down. When it comes time to sell your home, you need to do everything possible to get a great price for it and newly repaired fence is one of the most affordable ways achieve your goal.
