Materials Are Everything

Fencing materials are important. By choosing a tacky chain-linked fence, your value will not receive as significant of a raise as a wooden fence would. By investing in materials such as high-quality wood, concrete, or cast iron, your home will benefit. Upon resale, you can get a profit of at least 50% of installation and material costs.

Fence Placement

Be sure to match your fence to the theme of your home. Your fence placement should correspond with practicality. While having a fence in the front yard is nice, it can potentially lower your value and curb appeal.
