When a buyer is in the market for a new home first impressions are very important. The outside of the home is the first thing that buyers see in the sales material and it is the only thing they see when they drive by the location. Putting in new windows will get buyers to start thinking more about your home and will increase your chances of a sale.
1. That’s a Nice Looking Home, Let’s Find Out More
When it comes to trying to sell your home, you always want to make it look as good as possible. A home that looks nice and is well maintained is going to attract the eye of potential buyers. They are going to look closer at the details of the home and want to know more about it if they first like the look of the outside of the home.
New windows can help create this good first impression by making the outside of your home much more attractive than it was with your tired, old windows.
2. The Owners Must Take Care of Their Home
If the outside of your home looks good, potential buyers are going to think that you take care of your home. They will be less likely to wonder what else is wrong with your home if they see new windows instead of old, broken ones.
3. Are they Energy Efficient Windows?
Being energy efficient is important to a lot of buyers; and even to the ones it’s not, it is still an added feature to a home. If your new windows are energy efficient, you have another selling point for your real estate agent to use with potential buyers.
If your new windows are not energy efficient (but, why would you not go that way?) it can still lead to buyers asking if they are. This opens up dialogue about your home, which gets you one step closer to a sale.
4. If the Outside Looks Good, What Does the Inside Look Like?
When a potential buyer sees a nice looking exterior on a home, they are going to assume that the interior looks nice as well. This leads to that buyer having a higher regard for the home and increases the chance that they will want to walk through with their agent to see the inside.
5. What Else Has Been Updated?
With brand new windows on the outside of your home, buyers are going to wonder if anything else in the home is new. Are there new appliances? Did you update the bathroom or the carpets? Again, when the buyer starts to wonder and ask questions, you are one step closer to a sale.
