When was the last time you had your windows replaced? If you’re about to sell your home, windows replacement is one of the easiest ways to effectively upgrade it. The question is: should you really get new windows before selling your home? In this post, experts from Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod share some things to consider.
Generally, homebuyers prefer energy-efficient homes or those with newly renovated fixtures. Replacing old and standard windows is guaranteed to put your home at an advantage. It’s not always necessary; you can still put your home for sale without replacing your windows. However, we have listed things to help you realize if your home needs new windows before you sell it.
If your windows are visibly aging, drafty, and damaged, replace them with new ones immediately. You don’t want potential buyers to see that your home is not well taken care of. Also, with your home on the market, a professional inspection is required. The inspector may flag your home for inefficient windows.
If your state offers tax incentives for energy-efficient windows, buyers would likely prioritize homes that are equipped with them. It’s best to install new energy-saving windows to increase the interest of buyers.
If you think your home’s facade and aesthetic will improve by getting new windows, there’s no harm in doing so. It’s a worthy investment for your home’s sale value. Buyers are also most likely to be interested in homes with brand new fixtures.
