Fence installation is a valuable investment on most properties, especially around homes. Residential fencing is one of the best investments you can make in your property to protect your family. But what if your property isn’t also your home? Is there value in having GSA fence installers come out and install a fence on a rental property? Generally speaking, yes! If you plan well, installing a fence on a rental property will typically be a good investment.
The Value Of A Fence
There are many things about fences that make them a good investment for residential properties. They both contain and protect pets, kids, and other family members who may elope. They help shield your property from prying eyes and make it less of a target for thieves and vandals. They help limit the intrusion of outside noise, nosy trespassers, and wild animals into your backyard (like a pool). These benefits hold true, even if you aren’t living on the property (and not gaining the benefits personally). Your renters will benefit from them, however. And most family renters will be willing to pay a bit extra to have a fence. Protecting the property itself is also good since it is your investment.
Plan For Maintenance
Most fences need maintenance, and some need more than others. Choose the material for you fence with a reasonable and honest assessment of how much maintenance you’re going to be willing to do. If you live several hours from your rental property, you will likely need to hire someone to handle painting a wood fence every year. A vinyl fence never needs to be painted, and thus wouldn’t have that problem. Finally, don’t choose wood fencing because it is cheaper and then blow off the maintenance. A dangerous, poorly maintained fence is worse than no fence at all.
Choose a fencing material and a style that fits with the style of the home and the surrounding area. You don’t want your fencing choice to make the home look out of place. You also should plan for any potential renters and not just go with the cheapest option. While a simple chainlink fence would be fine for most kids and pets, many families prefer privacy fencing and may decide not to rent from you based on that lack.
Look For Savings
Finally, to make this an even better investment, look for ways to save. Get multiple quotes for fence installation. If you can wait for sales or the off-season when quotes might be lower, and availability is better. Finally, if you have multiple properties, see if you can score a bulk discount.
