Should You Replace Your Window Before Selling Your Home?

Home improvement projects like replacing your windows are an effective way to enhance your home. It’s in your best interest to have your home looking its best before putting it on the market. Should you replace your window before selling your home? In this article, Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, one of the best window installation companies, answers that question.

Should You Replace Your Window Before Selling Your Home?

Homebuyers usually prefer new and more energy-efficient homes. One thing is for sure, replacing old windows will boost your home’s value and competitive advantage. However, it’s not a requirement. Here are some things to consider if you’re thinking of replacing your windows before selling your home.

1. Replace your windows immediately if they are old, drafty, and damaged. Normally, interested buyers are going to have a professional inspection of your home. The inspector is likely to flag inefficient windows as a problem. You can easily avoid this by replacing your windows with energy-efficient ones.

2. If there are other more pressing home issues, maybe give it a second thought. A leaky, water-damaged roof is much more of a problem than an old window. Set your priority in spending home renovation money. List down problem areas in your home and start with the most important.

3. There are some states and localities that offer tax incentives for energy-efficient windows. If that’s the case in your area, you have to replace your windows. Having new and energy-efficient windows is a good selling point to potential buyers.

4. If replacing your windows can enhance the facade and character of your home, you need to do it. It may be costly but you can think of it as an investment to sell your home. Having a bold home with newly replaced windows may help you set your home at the best price.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
