Most people purchase a home knowing it will be a place for their friends and family to visit over the years. They also know that owning a home can be one of the best investment options for young families.
What many people are unaware of when it comes to buying their first home is that often the things they think will add the most value are not cosmetic fixes. Instead, it’s the practical things they use every day that give them the most return on their investment.
According to the popular site, Apartment Therapy, “Replacing practical features — like windows, siding and steel front doors — are on average more valuable upon resale than other, more discretionary projects like home office remodels, or adding a sunroom.”
With competition high among home owners who list their home for sale, taking the time to upgrade windows and doors can help you to stand out to prospective home buyers when it’s time for your family to find something new.
Appeals to Buyers
During the selling process, consider how attractive your home may to be potential buyers. Old, cloudy windows can affect how your home is perceived and affect the negotiation process. New replacement windows can help improve the value of your home.
That doesn’t mean you need to focus on resell value only. If you plan to be in your home for any length of time, you also want to make sure you’re not spending more than you need to on heating and cooling costs.
When you take the time to replace your windows and doors with energy efficient products, not only will you enjoy the beauty of new surroundings but you’ll also see a significant savings on your monthly bills.
As one of our happy customer said, “The windows were installed two and a half years ago. We’ve not had problems with them. Our summer energy bills have dropped about 25% to 30%.” J.M. Houston, TX.
While saving money on heating and cooling bills provides immediate gains, upgrading your home also adds to the potential resale value down the road.
