When you are deciding whether or not to install replacement windows, you’ll have many things to consider. The first question you might have to answer is if replacement windows will boost your home’s value. You might also be interested in selling your current home before moving into a newer one. If you’re still unsure about replacement windows, they can, in fact, boost your home’s value. Let’s find out how.
Higher Asking Prices
The cost of installing replacement windows increases the asking price of your home. You can expect about 70% of that overall cost to be added to the resale value. Getting money back can help make the process of finding a new home much easier as your budget has just increased. Think of how much of a difference an extra $7,000 can make! To truly capitalize on this opportunity, you should choose windows that will last longer, provide more energy-efficient benefits, and look fantastic as well.
You’ll Get Better Offers
You won’t always regain all the money you spend on getting your windows replaced. In fact, it’s a rare occurrence to get back the total amount you’ve used so far. However, with new windows installed, you can expect better offers. Potential homebuyers will notice your old windows and ask for a discount on the asking price. They would then use this discount to replace the windows. But since brand new windows mean higher asking prices, you can avoid this discount request altogether, especially if you can guarantee reduced energy costs.
Reduced Energy Costs
Another benefit of getting your windows redone is that they will reduce your home’s energy costs. The amount of money you save will vary because it comes down to the current condition of your windows, and how energy-efficient the replacements are. By highlighting the energy-efficiency of your new windows, you can entice more buyers for your home. After all, lower energy bills are much more attractive than higher energy bills.
More Curb Appeal
The overall attractiveness of a house can encourage a potential buyer to close the deal. By adding replacement windows, you ensure that your home has greater curb appeal. You could choose a variety of windows – wood or vinyl, for instance. Either way, these windows are eye-catching enough to convince a buyer to choose your home instead of another similar and similarly-priced house down the street.
