Pikespeak Window and Doors

Have you considered replacing the windows in your Colorado home?  You’ve probably heard that this investment will increase the value of your home.  Is this claim valid?
Is Replacing your windows before you sell your home really worth it?

​If you have old inefficient or damaged windows, it pays to replace them before listing your home on the market.  Here are the top ways windows increase your home value.

  • New Windows helps you increase the asking price

When you install new windows, you can add on about 70% of the cost of the windows to your asking price. So if you were to spend $10,000 on new windows, you can increase the selling price by $7,000.
A 70% return on investment is very high, making window replacement one of the best ways to increase value to your home.  You can maximize your return on investment if you choose beautiful, efficient and durable windows available from Pikes Peak Windows and Doors.

  • New Windows Discourage Low Offers

It’s unfortunate that you rarely get 100% pf your investment back from replacing your windows, but considering that if your home has outdated windows when you put it on the market, observant home hunters will call you out on it and will discount the selling price to put money towards replacing the windows.
A potential buyer may make an offer for $10,000 under asking price when the damaged window may only cost $1000 to replace.  This is why replacing the windows yourself and then validating an increased asking price is better than letting the homebuyer handle it.

  • New Windows Lower Energy Bills

Depending on the condition of the current windows and the efficiency rating of the replacement windows, you will probably save around 20 percent on your heating and cooling bills.  This fact is very appealing to buyers who will be getting a home that costs less to operate.

  • New Windows Improve the Appearance of Your Home

Beautiful new windows can drastically improve your home’s curb appeal, making a good impression on potential buyers.  New windows also offer a warm appealing addition to your home’s interior.  Improvements to the look and feel of your home may not directly add monetary value, but the appeal to potential buyers could be the tipping point for your home to win over a similar house for sale in your neighborhood.
