Does a fence add value to your home?
Many features of a property add (or detract) from the value. Whether or not a fence will impact the assessed value of a property is debatable. However, a fence can add real value if the prospective owner actually needs one. Even if it doesn’t increase the value of the property, having a quality fence in good condition will not hurt the sale of a property for prospective buyers that are looking for homes with existing fences, but an unattractive or degrading fence could negatively impact the value or sellability of the property when the prospective owner considers the additional expense a new fence will add to the cost of the home after its purchase. On the other hand, if the prospective owner needs a fence and a Trex fence is already on the property, it can add value to the sale of the home both in terms of real dollars and appeal. A Trex fence requires virtually no maintenance and will last 25+ years. Even an older Trex fence can give the new owner the peace of mind that they will not need to budget for painting, staining, or replacing rotting materials. The name brand alone is a selling feature and the fact that the warranty is transferable from the original owner to the next owner adds even more appeal. Homeowners that purchase Trex fences often look beyond the value of the fence for their own enjoyment and look to the potential of increasing the value of their home for a prospective buyer.
