When it comes to replacing windows, many home sellers begin to stress about whether or not they should invest a substantial amount of money on a house they are ultimately going to be leaving in the near future. Will it help the home sell? Will the investment get returned?
Today, we answer questions to help you decide whether or not it’s a solid investment to replace the windows in your specific home before selling.
- Turnkey Benefit
Today’s home buyers are on a quest to find a move-in ready property that requires little-to-no renovation after the deal has been sealed. Moving into a turnkey home takes the stress and financial burden off a buyer’s mind and encourages peace of mind. And, truth be told, no property buyer would ever wish to do improvements shortly after closure.
- Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency was ranked as extremely or very important to most buyers. Savvy buyers will note the type of windows you’ve installed. Consider wood and vinyl as it is more energy-efficient than aluminum, and casement windows are more resistant to air leaks. Buyers may also look for insulated replacement windows or those with special coatings.
- Improved Curb Appeal
Looks do play a critical role when it comes to selling a house faster and for more money. Whether your prospective buyers are driving through the locale or browsing for properties online, how your house presents itself can inspire their purchase decision.
If you’re selling a house in proximity to a busy street, an airport or a train, you’d better replace your windows with new ones so the outside noise won’t aggravate your buyers. To ease your buyers’ worries and fears, go for noise-barring windows like laminated glass, double-pane or triple-pane windows.
