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.
