Part of any home improvement decision is considering how much value will be added to the home. You want to get the most from your investment by choosing projects that enable you to recoup as much of your cash outlay as possible when you sell the home in the future. There are a few reasons why you should consider having new windows installed, and the increase in value is only one part of the equation.
Yes, you can expect that new windows will make your home more marketable and sell for more money. Studies show that roughly 70% of this investment is recoupable, making it one of the best upgrade options you can make with your home. Buyers are very much interested in energy efficiency and are willing to pay more for a home that has enjoyed lower heating and cooling costs because of energy-efficient windows. It also doesn’t hurt that they are easier to maintain.
Here’s a benefit that you may not have thought about. Because you’ll be saving money on utilities, you can transfer that portion of your budget to the next home improvement project. This is why new windows should be first on your list. Other projects like a new kitchen or bathroom do not have the ability to pay you back like new windows can.
