In South Africa today, perimeter security is a major concern for homeowners, and if you are planning on selling your property then it is a very important point to keep in mind.
What is the first thing anyone sees when they approach your property?
Your boundary wall or fence.
First impressions count. If your boundary wall is shabby, not properly maintained and is cracking or pealing, then it does not matter how well your house is maintained, the look of your boundary wall will be the impression indelibly printed in a potential buyer’s mind.
The impression will cause the potential buyer to believe that your house is not as well maintained as it appears to be.
It is best to repair or replace boundary walls before putting your property on the market. That way you are assured of a much better price and an easier sale.
Your boundary wall or fence should always enhance and add to the aesthetic beauty of your property.
Potential buyers will also be keeping their eye on the security value of the boundary wall or fence. Your fencing or walling should not look distinctly inferior in any way to any of your neighbours.
This is when keeping up with the Joneses is an effective route to follow. Security is important, so your walling or fencing should show that it is a priority for you too.
It is always a good idea to go out of your property to take a really long hard look at your property to get the real street view of where your property stands in the security and aesthetic beauty of the area.
If all your neighbours have electric fencing and palisades and you do not, it will be immediately noticeable to potential buyers. You do not want your property to stick out like a sore thumb.
Many property owners have chosen to raise their walls or fences by adding electric fencing or palisades to existing structures. This enhances the security and is also aesthetically pleasing.
Always choose a quality product and a trustworthy team for all your walling needs. Whether you wish to replace an existing wall or fence, or raise it to obtain more security, cutting corners can and will backfire on you when it comes to selling your property.
Your boundary wall or fence should always be something that you can be proud of and which will enhance the value of your property and add to its aesthetic beauty.
