Is Replacing Windows Before Selling Your Home a Good Idea?

So you’ve decided to put your home on the market. You probably have a ton of things to fix to make your house more appealing. After all, an attractive, well-maintained home is likely to sell much faster and for a better price. One thing you may be considering is having your windows replaced. But are replacement windows really worth it? And can it really make a difference with prospective buyers? Here are our two cents. 

Replacing Windows Before Selling

Benefits

First off, let’s talk about the benefits of replacing your windows before selling. If your home has old, worn-down windows, it will give potential buyers the impression that it is a fixer-upper, whereas, having brand-new windows sends a message that your house is well-kept and energy-efficient. 

In fact, according to a survey conducted by the National Association of Homebuilders in 2017, a home with modern, energy-efficient replacement windows is ranked as more desirable by up to 90 percent. This, of course, is likely to translate into a quicker sale. 

Drawbacks

To be honest, the only real drawback of having your windows replaced before selling is the cost. An average window replacement job will cost you about $600 per window. If you have wood windows, the price can balloon up to $900. 

If you are having a hard time deciding, one useful tip we can give you is to try to look at your home in the eyes of a buyer. If you feel like the windows are going to be an issue that could prevent the sale, then by all means have them replaced – provided you have the budget, of course.
