Selling your home often comes with many different emotions. While you’re excited to move on and begin the next chapter of your life, closing the current one might be bittersweet. You’ve made some beautiful memories, and it can be hard to say goodbye. However, deep down, you know it’s time for a change. Whether it’s because you’re moving cities, making an upgrade, or for other personal reasons, you’re looking forward to a new living space.
But before you put your house on the market, you must increase its value by giving it a little bit of a facelift. You want to sell your house quickly and make money in return by beautifying your house. One of the most effective methods of home improvement with a high ROI (Return On Investment) is to replace your windows with new ones. And, we’re not saying that just because we’re a windows and doors company — a new set of windows can turn your home into an energy-efficient, sparkling oasis for new owners. We’re Casa Bella Windows & Doors, and we believe that our products will boost the curb appeal of your home and add value to your home in no time.
The Benefits of New Windows
Improving your house with new windows in Toronto and the surrounding area is an incredible investment. Window replacement is repeatedly listed as a top ten home improvement project that enhances home resale value by business magazines worldwide. Let’s say you spend $15,000 on a window replacement project. You could potentially raise the value of your home by about $11,000, which is a 74% ROI!
You may be wondering how (and why) would that happen? Why would I invest a large chunk of money in my home before selling? The reason is that potential homebuyers are attracted to modernity and efficiency. If buyers find out that one of the houses they’re interested in has new windows, not only will they want that home over the others because of the aesthetics and high functionality, they’ll also pay a higher price for it.
Let’s look at why new windows will give your home a higher resale value.
The first thing you notice when house hunting (aside from its overall condition) is its windows. For example, you wonder, are there enough windows? What kind of windows are they? Are they in good shape? You look for accents, such as bay and bow windows that bring character and natural light to a home. People will quickly turn away from a house with run-down and neglected windows because they take away from its curb appeal.
People pay big money these days for a new home, and they expect certain expectations. Modern homes require energy-efficiency, from appliances to smart technology to windows and doors. Casa Bella’s products are all energy-efficient, and our windows meet and exceed Energy Star® qualifications. By working with us, you and future homeowners will conserve energy and also save money.
Your new windows will contain Low-E glass, which reduces the number of ultraviolet sun rays from entering your house without minimizing the natural sunlight. It’s designed to trap warm air inside the house (or cool air if the AC is on) so you won’t have to turn up the thermostat too high. Energy-efficient windows are an excellent selling point, and if you replace your windows with modern styles, your house will stand out from the crowd.
Your House Will be Memorable
Buyers will go home at the end of a long day, looking at house after house, and remember only a couple of homes. They’re imagining themselves living inside of these spaces and thinking of their futures. What will help them remember yours? Of course, your house could have many unique features, such as beautiful flooring or a cozy sunroom in the back. But another enticing detail is window quality. Clean, beautiful windows are appealing to anyone searching for a new home. It also helps to diversify your window styles.
Consider installing specialty windows — such as rounded, elliptical, or oval — to add a decorative touch to your home. People will remember these accents and will want to own such beautiful windows.
If you plan on selling your home within the next year or two, consider the benefits of improving its resale value with brand new windows. Your investment now will become savings for your future.
