Why You Should Have Fence Installation Done On Your Starter Home

You've bought your first home, and like many people who have purchased a starter home, you've gone the route of buying a basic property with additional features so you save money while still getting a great house. You'll get to home improvement projects along the way, but fence installation should be among the first on your list. Here are a few reasons why you should consider fence installation at your starter home.

Your home has a sense of privacy and safety

Your starter home is given a sense of privacy and safety when you have fence installation done. A fence — particularly a tall fence — can help prevent would-be intruders from breaking into your property. Even if you choose to install a basic chain-link fence, adding the border around your property gives you peace of mind. Talk to your fence contractor about the best fence type for your needs, whether you prefer a private wood fence, a durable stainless steel fence, a classic chain-link fence, or a more modern vinyl fence.

Your home has better curb appeal

Your starter home has better curb appeal when it has a professionally installed fence. Even a basic fence can improve the way your home's exterior looks by providing a clean and streamlined border and helping your home stand out from neighboring homes.

Look at the types of fencing your neighbors use and put up a similar fence of your own to create a uniform appeal. When in doubt, ask your fence installation specialist what the most popular types of fences installed in your area are and put up a similar one in your front or back yard.

You home has better future value

Your starter home is just the beginning of your home ownership journey. When you have a fence installed now, you help your home have better appeal for selling in the future. People who have pets or kids may want to put more money into buying a home with a fence than one without, which can help you recoup a lot of the investment you make on your fence installation now. Even if you're on a budget, you can still have a chain-link or other great fence put up on your property that won't cost a lot of money. Your fencing contractor will quote you time and material costs for your fence installation to help you budget for the project accordingly.
