There are a lot of ways to increase property value such as home improvement. However, some projects can be costly. You have to take up the right upgrade that will bring you big return on investment. Speaking of big one, there is a promise in taking up a window replacement project.
The condition of your window can be one of the factors in determining the value of your home. Old, worn-out windows are certainly a drawback, not to mention the additional energy expenses they’re costing you.
Related to that, Money Crashers has this advice:
These days, buyers shop for homes with energy efficiency in mind. Old, drafty single-pane windows are a major turn off. Energy Star claims that adding Energy Star-rated windows can save you up to $500 a year in heating and cooling costs by making your home more energy efficient.
According to HGTV, you can expect to recoup 60%-90% of your costs when you invest in energy-efficient windows. You can also receive a green energy tax credit of 10% for this upgrade, as long as you install Energy Star-rated windows. You might also qualify for additional credits from your state, or even your utility company.
That being said, with the right windows you’re not only investing on aesthetic appeal but also on getting other benefits that will surely attract potential buyers.
