Let’s take a minute to talk about fences. Fences can certainly add data points to a home, and help it sell faster. They keep your pets and children in. They keep neighborhood pets and children out. Fences can provide privacy as well. Privacy is generally determined by material and height; which you don’t always have control over. City restrictions will determine height limits and may require a permit. Home Owners Associations will have restrictions as well, which may include allowed materials. For example, Granada Oaks requires stone and wrought iron and Plum Creek requires white picket fences.

When looking at houses keep fences in mind, so you can research what you would like to do in the future, before you purchase.
