Is your fence in disrepair or dilapidated? That might worry prospective buyers and caution them to ask what else is in bad shape that needs fixing throughout the home. If your fence is in great shape, prospective buyers might feel more encouraged about what they are about to see when viewing your home. First impressions mean everything! In fact, here are some numbers to take into consideration when thinking about how you can boost your curb appeal:With the housing market on the rise, now is a great time to consider putting your home up for sale.

A fence in bad shape signals extra expenses and repairs on top of the home’s purchase price to a potential buyer. A study, solid fence that complements your property indicates a well-maintained home that may require little to no additional expenses. Factoring in additional expenses when buying a home is a large part of the process – your fence shouldn’t be one of those. Curb appeal goes a long way in real estate and can help you sell your property that much faster.
