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.

"The men who came out were able to work with each other good and professional showing us how the job would start and how long it would take. While they were doing their job they saw that the windows sills were off balance and very diligent and made it repairable to place the new windows in they cleaned up the area where they were working and made it look like no one had been there. They were very polite."
