Windows are such a crucial part of a home’s exterior that for some homebuyers, they can make or break a deal. If you are planning on selling your house, read on as we discuss the window features that homebuyers want.
Windows That Connect the Indoor and Outdoor Spaces
Connecting the indoor and outdoor spaces can make the home feel spacious and welcoming, a quality that today’s homebuyers look for in a house. A good combination of windows and patio doors that create such a transition, and works well with an open floor plan. Windows with large glass areas capture a view and provide natural light while patio doors with similar aesthetics help reinforce the connection by providing a physical access to the yard or patio.
Windows That Bring Comfort
Most people wouldn’t associate the word “comfort” with windows, but a knowledgeable homebuyer knows how windows play an important part in making their home feel comfortable. Insulated windows help slow down thermal transfer between interior and exterior spaces, which helps prevent heat loss during the winter season and heat gain during the summer season.
In addition to maintaining comfortable indoor temperatures at all times, insulated windows also help reduce the strain on the heating and air conditioning systems, which can help prolong its lifespan. But the greatest benefit of having insulated windows is it can help reduce utility bills. Even if you’re not planning on selling your home now, getting energy-efficient replacement windows is a good investment worth considering.
Windows That Have Low Maintenance Requirements
No homebuyer is looking forward to spending their weekends scrubbing their windows, which is why low-maintenance features are likely to be on their want list. These features include frames and sashes that require water and mild detergent to keep clean, glass with coatings that prevent water spotting and sashes that can be removed or tilted, or have offset hinges that allow easy cleaning.
Ultimately, replacing the windows prior to putting your home up for sale can make it more desirable to homebuyers.
