Should You Replace Your Windows Before Selling Your Home?

First impressions last. That’s why if you’re putting up your home on the property market, you need to make sure your exterior is in good condition. A fresh coat of paint on your siding can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. But what about your windows? If they’re looking a bit worn, should you replace them before selling your home? The short answer is it depends on several factors.

The Property Market

Homebuyers may be willing to overlook a few imperfections in a competitive property market. But if you’re not in a sellers’ market, new energy-efficient windows are an attractive feature that can capture home buyers’ attention. According to a survey of home buyers by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), 87% of home buyers considered energy-efficient windows to be an “essential or desirable” feature.

If you’re looking for new energy-efficient windows, Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri offers a wide variety of residential window replacement options. We offer windows made from Fibrex®, an exclusive wood-and-vinyl composite with excellent insulative capabilities. (Fibrex can insulate your home 700 times better than aluminum). Combined with our High Performance™ Low-E4® glass, Fibrex windows can become a green feature that can help clinch the sale.

The Extent of the Damage to the Windows

Even in a competitive property market, home buyers might not be willing to overlook badly damaged windows. If you suspect worn-out windows could be a deal breaker for home buyers, it may make financial sense to get new windows.

Design Consistency

If you decide to replace your windows, make sure to choose a window replacement that complements the other parts of your exterior. Remember: when it comes to exterior design, consistency is key. If you’re having trouble choosing a window design, our design consultants would be happy to help you.

Renewal by Andersen of Southwest Missouri offers the best replacement windows in the state. To schedule a free consultation with our design consultants, call us at (417) 268-9301, or fill out this form.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."

"Very professional staff . No pressure sales. The job they do is neat and clean, no cleanup left for the owner. Communication is great. Always informed on the status of of your product, AND the tin of cookies you receive afterwards is a pleasant plus."
