One of the many questions people ask when considering new automatic gate installation, is will it increase the value of my property? The answer is yes.
The average person in the market for a home spends less than ten seconds forming a first impression. That’s why investing in what you need to make a great first impression should be a priority. Everything that is visible to a potential homebuyer should work together to let them know you care about how your property looks.
Experts in residential real estate say that curb appeal is most important visual factor when selling a home. If a potential homebuyer doesn’t like a photo or the look of your property when they drive past, the opportunity is likely gone. Part of curb appeal is not only aesthetics, but how safe a home looks from the outside. Windows, doors, garage doors are all considered when deciding if a home looks secure. Another important feature is an automatic gate which also gives a sense of safety and security. The more barriers between them and the outside world, the safer a homebuyer will feel.
Investing in a new automatic gate prior to putting your home on the market can bring as much as an 88-percent return on your investment and add as much as 5 percent to the value to your home. It also gives a homebuyer a sense of security which is very important especially if they have small children. Another advantage to having an automatic gate is that it lowers insurance rates which can also attract buyers.
