Is your fence stopping you selling?

Posted by System 28/10/2017 0 Comment(s) Help & Advice,

So, you're planning to sell your home?

Selling your home can be an exciting time, whether you're taking the leap to a bigger property or down-sizing and freeing up some cash, here's how to help you sell!


My fence is old and in pretty bad shape. Should I replace it?

Yes. Leaving a old, broken fence in your front or back garden will probably give buyers a bad first impression of your most valued possession, your home.


Why? Well, if it looks like you haven't dealt with a major eyesore, would-be buyers are more than likely going to wonder if you there will be other thing that haven't been maintained. The good news is, it's not difficult to resolve the issue.


My fence is broken in places, but some parts are ok

In this situation, there are normally three descriptions that meat most circumstances.


1, My fence looks old and outdated, but isn't broken.

In this situation, we'd recommend giving your fence a bit of life back, spend the weekend giving them a lick of paint and minor repairs you find.


2, My fence is slightly damaged, but not dangerous.

In this situation, we'd recommend obtaining a few quotes to gather an idea of cost, but not necessarily replace your fence just yet. If your fence is mentioned during any negotiations then you can offer a "goodwill" reduction in the price of your home so the new homeowner can repair/replace the fence.


3, My fence is damaged, and dangerous.

In this situation, we'd recommend replacing your fence, a broken and dangerous fence will put off most potential buyers, and that never good.
