When you think of remodeling your home to increase its value, window replacement might not instantly come up to mind. However, new windows can add value to your home and may even offer as much return on investment (ROI) as other home improvements.
During a buyer’s tour of your property, they may not notice poor window aesthetics. But with a closer look, they will likely realize that replacing those old windows will cost them a significant amount. In this case, they will surely appreciate new windows, making your property an attractive choice.
Here’s how new windows can boost your home’s resale value.
Improved Energy Efficiency
The energy efficiency of windows helps pay the bills because it allows you to save money. That’s why many homeowners who replace their windows with ENERGY STAR® units likely have a higher chance of selling their homes at a higher value. Energy-efficient windows can lower your monthly bill by up to 12%. In addition to saving money from utilities, energy-efficient windows can also earn you tax credits.
Curb appeal matters for homebuyers, and windows are an essential component of your home’s exterior. That said, a nice exterior can make your home a top choice for homebuyers.
The average cost of replacing all windows in a home is a significant amount. But according to experts, it’s possible to add around 80% of that amount to your home’s resale value. You can maximize this by making sure other components of your home are in excellent condition.
