Can Decorative Sign Posts and Brackets Really Increase Property Value?
Posted by Jeffrey Dornbos on 16th Nov 2016
Property values often correlate with curb appeal, the condition of a home or commercial property and location. There are other factors, that while they may not be directly tied to increased property values, they can definitely make properties more attractive to buyers.
One of the factors that many property owners rarely think about is the curb appeal not just of their individual house, but of their neighborhood as a whole. If you’re trying to sell your home, you want potential buyers to drive into your neighborhood and instantly feel welcomed and at home. If potential buyers are instantly turned off by damaged street signs, and other negative factors, they may choose to look elsewhere for their next dream home.
How Can Decorate Sign Posts and Brackets Affect Property Value?
As mentioned above, when you’re looking to sell a property you want to remove as many objections as possible on the part of potential buyers. One of these objections may have nothing to do with your house, but in the overall condition of your neighborhood. While you may not have control over many of these factors, such as the condition of your neighbor’s home, if you live in a neighborhood that is governed by an HOA, you may want to reach out to the company managing your neighborhood association to alert them to some of the issues you’re seeing.
Decorative sign posts and brackets are often one of the last things that homeowner’s associations and even homeowners worry about on a daily basis. But, when you’re looking to convey an inviting image, dated and damaged signs and signposts can be extremely distracting for potential home buyers.
At Dornbos Sign & Safety, Inc. we work with a large number of homeowner’s associations across the country to provide updated sign posts and brackets to improve the curb appeal of these neighborhoods. If your neighborhood hasn’t updated its street signs in decades, now may be the perfect time to update the look of your neighborhood. Even if you haven’t received complaints from homeowners, it’s likely only a matter of time before an owner complains after they receive negative comments from potential buyers.
Other Factors That Help to Increase Property Values
Aside from a well maintained neighborhood, below are a few other factors that could significantly impact property values in your area.
- Homes sell quickly – If homes are selling quickly in your neighborhood, it’s usually a sign that the neighborhood is in high demand.
- Ownership is high – Neighborhoods that have high ownership are typically more stable. Renters are often more transient than homeowners, and therefore neighborhoods with a significant number of renters can be seen as unstable by some.
- High school ratings – Neighborhoods with good schools typically are more appealing, especially for young families. Search GreatSchools.org for information about schools in neighborhoods where you’re looking to live.
