Thinking of selling your home? Are you all ready to put your property on the market but you feel something is missing? Maybe you’re not fully happy with your property and feel that your property won’t sell for what it’s truly worth. You’re not alone. Many homeowners feel this way and because of this, things can get a bit tricky between a real estate agent, a seller, and a potential buyer. If a buyer doesn’t feel a home is worth the asking price but the seller refuses to lower their price, it can cost a homeowner a potential sale as well as a buyer their dream home.
But what does that have to do with windows you may ask? Well since windows are part of a home and can absolutely make or break a sale, there’s a pretty good reason that your home should have windows that are “move in ready” and match the house. For example, imagine you were looking to buy a home and you pulled up to a house that checked all your boxes – 3 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, a large yard and all in a great school district, except one thing – the windows were severely outdated and broken, giving off a bad impression. While some may think that they wouldn’t pay any mind to the windows, the harsh reality is most potential buyers would. These outdated or broken and/or damaged windows can give off the wrong impression.
Windows can signal trouble and raise red flags for buyers. It says that a homeowner doesn’t care for their property enough to regularly maintain it and keep up with their windows, something everyone inside and outside of a home can see. Some buyers might also think that a home has been targeted by burglars if a window is broken. While this may or may not be true, it can raise a lot of unwanted attention and questions about a home and can potentially make a buyer want to inspect every part of the home before they even call in an inspector.
While your home may be in tip-top shape, this can create a snowball effect and leave you stressed and frustrated over something as simple as a window fix.
