It doesn’t take a real estate expert to know that an attractive, well-kept home is more likely to sell faster and at a better price than a home that has obviously been neglected and is in need of some major repairs. This is why a lot of homeowners undertake at least a few small repairs around the house before putting their house on the market. You do not need to take on a full-on home remodeling project to better your chances of selling your house, but we do recommend that you consider replacing older windows if your budget allows for it. Here’s why.
Why It Makes Sense
New windows will help sell your house. In fact, according to a recent survey conducted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), nearly 90% of homebuyers are more likely to buy a home with newly installed, energy-efficient windows.
A home with new windows will not only boost its overall curb appeal, but gives it the impression that it is very well-maintained and updated. It gives you a competitive edge in the market because you will be able to add the phrase “new, energy-efficient windows throughout” to your listing, which is sure to catch a home buyer’s attention.
Of course, if your windows are relatively new then a full-on window replacement project will not be necessary. However, you should consider sprucing them up a bit to give your home that extra oomph without too much effort.
