You are looking to sell your home. Now what? It’s wise to take inventory of its shortcomings and replace anything that needs an upgrade. If your current windows are old, failing, or not energy efficient, consider a total replacement to improve your home’s marketability and make the sale smoother. New windows can positively impact a buyer’s willingness to pay the total asking price. According to the National Association of Realtors 2021 cost vs. value report, homeowners who replaced their windows with new windows saw an average return of over 72% of the project cost upon resale.
Many buyers do not want the hassle of replacing home windows when buying a new home. Suppose you foresee your windows being an issue when trying to sell your house for the most value. In that case, it is essential to replace your windows for these reasons:
- Inoperable windows: Replace windows with broken glass or broken latches, locks, or springs.
- Drafty windows: Older windows are less energy efficient because of how they were designed, but all windows can start letting drafts through as your home settles.
- Inefficient windows: Older windows don’t block UV rays, and newer windows, which means they let heat through more efficiently. Newer windows will also block out noise. Replacing windows with laminated glass, double-pane, or triple-pane windows can ease buyers’ worries.
Upgrade Your Home with New Windows
Sellers are advised to install new windows to make their properties competitive, but they still need to keep in mind that new windows are not a cure-all if your house needs a lot of work. However, new windows will upgrade the home’s appearance. How your home looks from the street can make or break a buyer’s first impression. New windows help a house stand out. When sellers compete for a small number of buyers, this is very important. A 2021 survey by the National Association of Homebuilders found that homebuyers considered energy-efficient windows essential or desirable.
