Attractive, well-kept homes sell faster than homes that are dilapidated and neglected. You don’t need an expert to tell you that. A home buyer will form an opinion of a house even before setting foot inside the front door. Before listing a home for sale, most homeowners will make minor fixes, such as repainting a room, upgrading the lighting or re-oiling old cabinets to help sell their house faster.
But what about something more dramatic like installing replacement windows? In today’s post, your friends over at Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta explains why replacing old windows can boost your home’s selling potential and as well as its price.
Why It Makes Sense
According to a recent survey conducted by the National Association of Home Builders, about 87 percent of potential home buyers are more likely to buy a home that has energy-efficient windows.
Hiring a window replacement contractor to replace your old windows will give you a competitive edge and the phrase “new windows throughout” on your real estate listing is sure to grab a potential buyer’s attention.
If your windows are relatively new then a full-scale replacement may not be necessary. If you already have modern windows that are not drafty, are soundproof, and are fairly energy-efficient then just sprucing them up can do wonders for your home’s overall appeal.
Also, if the budget is a bit tight and you simply cannot afford to replace all the windows in your home before selling, then replacing just one can do the trick. Adding a single statement or accent window gives your home extra personality and added curb appeal which may just be the edge you need to beat the competition.
