Are you planning to sell your home soon? If so, you may be wondering what improvements you can make to ensure your home sells for a good price. At the same time, you don’t want to sink a lot of money into a home you’re about to move out of.
Certain home improvements are considered to be worth the investment when it comes to gaining resale value. Most of those improvements are done to the front exterior of the house in order to boost curb appeal.
Replacing your windows is high on the list of improvements that will encourage potential buyers. You may be reluctant to make such a large investment in a house you’re putting up for sale, but when you get an offer that’s at or above your asking price, those windows will have paid for themselves.
Benefits of Replacing Your Windows
There are plenty of advantages to going ahead with window replacement before selling your home, such as:
New windows will have a better solar heat gain coefficient, the scientific way to measure how much heat passes through them. In the winter you want the heat to stay in, and in the summer you want the heat to stay out so that your HVAC system will use less energy to keep your home comfortable. New windows can noticeably lower your energy bill as soon as the first month after installation.
A Fresh New Look
New windows can give the front exterior of your home a facelift. The crisp lines, pristine color, and crystal clear glass will be noticeable right away, making your home look well-maintained. It’s an indisputable fact: new windows add curb appeal.
When you get your home ready to sell, you clean it top to bottom, including areas you haven’t touched in a while. Are your old windows a pain to clean? Don’t clean them. Replace them instead with new windows that will be easier to keep clean while your home is on the market.
Well-insulated windows don’t just keep out the heat and cold. They also reduce outside noise. If you live on a busy street or have noisy neighbors, new windows could mean you hear a lot less. And when potential buyers step into your home, they’re less likely to hear the noise of the neighborhood as well.
Do your windows stick when you go to open them or slide so well they won’t stay open at all? New windows operate smoothly, gliding up when you wish to open them and staying put when you do. The locking mechanism will also be new and easy to maneuver.
Have you noticed the fading of fabrics that are near your windows? Newer windows are designed with UV protection to prevent the sun from causing fading of curtains, furniture, and carpets.
The best part is that you can enjoy all of these perks of your new windows before you move out, as well as increase the resale value of your home. You may even decide that you don’t want to move because your new windows have improved your home so greatly.
