A home in tip-top shape may sell easier than an unkempt home. But it can be difficult to decide how much home improvement is necessary before putting your home on the market. After all, you won’t be living in the home anymore, so you only want to make changes that will help you sell the house with a satisfying return on investment.
If you’re undecided on whether or not to do a window replacement prior to selling your home, read on as we help you make an informed decision.
Today’s home buyers want 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 make improvements shortly after closure.
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 they are 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.
Increase Home Value
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 close 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 double-hung windows.
