Your home is probably the largest investment you’ve made in your life. Naturally, you want to make sure that investment continues to pay off and increases in value. One of the best ways to ensure the value goes up is with upgrades. While some people think the only way to increase home value is by upgrading the kitchen or bathroom, other options are available. Consider getting replacement windows.
A Big Investment
Replacing all of the windows in your home is a large investment, and this causes concern for homeowners. They want to know how much they may be able to recoup if they were to sell. Research shows that on average, it is possible to recoup more than 70% of the initial investment cost.
Replacement cost for windows varies from customer to customer. It depends on a range of factors including the number of windows, types of windows, brands, etc. Talk with the professionals to get an estimate of how much it could cost to replace your windows. Often, the cost for window replacement will be the same or less than other popular home improvement options.
Ultimately, though, the windows have the potential to help increase your home value, as you will see below.
Buyers Look for New Windows
If you are going to sell your home in the near future, upgrading the windows can be a great way to boost buyer interest.
Buyers understand that the new windows are more energy efficient, and that’s what many are looking for today. They will be more inclined to pay a bit more for a property that doesn’t need new windows. If you have a home that hasn’t had the windows replaced in 15 years, it is time.
New Windows Could Equal More Savings
In addition to the ROI, having new, energy-efficient windows can provide value in energy savings. New windows reduce heat transfer and help keep the home cooler in the summer and warmer in winter. This means less use of the furnace and air conditioner. These savings will be noticeable on your monthly energy bill.
