Selling Your Home? Don’t Neglect to Consider Your Fencing!

Selling a home is no easy feat, and it’s easy to get carried away when ticking off items in need of attention prior to listing for sale. One thing many homeowners neglect to consider is that fencing is no longer an inconspicuous property feature, it is now an important security, safety and value-adding element which can make a property immensely more attractive to prospective buyers.

Whether your pool fence is looking a little worse for wear or your balustrades need an update, rest assured that Railsafe have the means to transform your property from drab to fab. We love seeing the difference a stunning new fence or balustrade can make to a property, and in this blog post we’ll be sharing our top reasons why upgrading your fencing makes good financial sense when preparing to sell a home.


Fences and balustrades aren’t just there to look good; they also assist in keeping out trespassers by clearly defining the boundaries of your land. When looking for a home, people look closely for signs that the residence is secure. By installing compliant, up-to-date fences and balustrades you can create the impression of a safe and secure home which will instantly make your home more attractive to prospective buyers.

Our glass pool fencing, privacy screens, aluminium, semi-frameless and frameless balustrades will assist with:

  • Improving Privacy
  • Clearly Defining Key Areas of Your Property
  • Enhancing Security
  • Ensuring Compliance with Australian Government Guidelines
  • Deterring Trespassers
  • Providing Buyers with Peace of Mind to Move Around the Home with Confidence

Aesthetic Appeal – Transform Your Home

When selling a home, you want to present it in the best possible light. Giving your property a fresh coat of paint and updating the blinds will go a long way in improving its appeal, but the best possible investment you could make would be new pool fencing and balustrades.

Many older homes were built with aluminium balustrades which often have a cold, harsh appearance and take on a weather-beaten look as the years go by. You can bring your property into the 21st century and in-line with modern tastes by upgrading to glass balustrades and fencing, instantly adding value to your property and making it more appealing. First impressions matter, and visitors will be amazed at how modern your home looks from the moment they arrive.

Safety for Families, Seniors and People with Pets

Pool fencing and balustrade requirements have changed significantly over the years, and many properties are no longer compliant with current regulations. Prospective buyers with young children, senior citizens, the differently abled and people with pets who turn up for inspection will be immediately turned off by non-compliant balustrades and fences.

Ideally, buyers would like to move into their new home knowing that their loved-ones and pets will be safe and secure. Balustrading and pool fencing will make your property infinitely more attractive from a safety perspective, and you can expect to make the cost of your investment back at sale time.
