If increasing the value of your property is important to you, iron or cedar fences are a solid investment. When installing a fence to increase property value, be sure to work with a professional fencing company that is licensed and bonded.

A well-maintained fence can increase your property value by as much as $6,000, depending on the material used and the age of the fence. While some home buyers want a more open landscape, potential buyers with pets or children will pay a premium price for a house with a fenced backyard.

Keep these considerations in mind if you want to use your fence to raise the property value of your home.
