How Replacing your Windows can Increase the Value of your Home
In a saturated market, it’s important to have a home that is move-in ready and updated with modern amenities. Replacing your windows can help achieve the high-level of economical, practical and aesthetic benefits, coveted by potential customers. Keep reading to find out how new windows can improve your home’s marketability, thus helping to raise its value.
Increase Energy Efficiency
According to HGTV, you can expect to recoup 60%-90% of your costs when you invest in energy-efficient windows. Windows are a functional update that is appreciated for improving energy efficiency. High efficiency, Energy Star certified windows help save on heating and cooling bills all year long and can lower your home’s energy bills by 7 to 15 percent. That is a selling point for buyers as they recognize the long-term savings that this will provide them.
Bonus Tip: You can receive up to $5000 back with the Green Ontario, as long as you install Energy Star-rated windows.
Improve Curb Appeal
Replacing the windows in your home with improved versions can greatly increase the curb appeal, rendering it more attractive to potential buyers. Replacing old windows should more than pay for itself, providing the replacements are of good quality and in keeping with the style of the house. When choosing new windows select windows that elicit the look and feel of your current ones but that capture more natural light (bay or picture windows) or are easier to clean (double hung windows).
Avoid Future Work
Good windows are one of the big ticket items people want to see. Knowing that they may have to replace them after they move in can convince buyers to go with another property that already has the windows done. Impact-resistant windows also reduce safety and security risks. These won't shatter if they're broken, thus reducing potential damage inside the home from natural disasters or human damages (this may also allow for a discount in insurance premiums). Additionally, certain varieties of glass block UV light and solar heat to improve comfort and protect furniture from fading. This will save future homeowners from having to replace furniture.
