You decided that you want to put your property on the Havasu real estate market. So, you found yourself the right real estate agent. Then, you made some budget-friendly upgrades so that your home is more marketable. You even increased your backyard appeal. But while you performed an informal inspection of your real estate in Lake Havasu, you discovered that your windows were a bit worse for wear. While you may not think these are a big deal, they can be. Buyers notice everything about a property, including the windows. New windows can actually help you sell your house a little faster.
New Windows Help Sell Houses
Wonky windows with cracked seals allow cold air to escape and hot air to invade your real estate in Lake Havasu. When you live in triple-digit temperatures for several weeks during the year, this can be a real problem. Buyers want to see an updated, energy-efficient home. This includes your windows. Plus, new windows look so much more appealing than old aluminum or wood windows. Also, you can save money on your energy bills while you wait to sell your property on the Havasu real estate market. That is a win no matter how you look at it.
How Do I Know if I Need to Replace My Windows?
Not all real estate in Lake Havasu needs new windows. How do you know if you need to replace yours? Look at the window frames for cracks, chips, or signs of water damage. Do you feel a draft near a window even when it is closed? Does water collect in between your double-paned windows or does your window appear cloudy even when completely clean? Are the panes broken or cracked? Are they only single-pane instead of double? Can you hear outside noise clearly when your windows are closed? Then, it is time to contact a professional to get an estimate.
Now, you always have the option to leave your old windows as they are before placing your home up for sale on the Havasu real estate market. However, when buyers see this, they automatically see dollar signs to fix it. This could affect how much they offer to pay for your home. So, changing them out before you list always makes more sense, if possible. When you decide to sell your Lake Havasu home, contact me.
