New Windows Can Save you Money.
People ask us everyday ‘what adds the most value to a home’ any good flipper would tell you there are a few things you can do but ultimately what sells the home is the feeling you get when you walk in.
Eyes are the windows to the soul; windows are the soul to the home
and nothing quite changes the feeling of a home than light spilling in from a well placed window.
So here are a few of the biggest reasons to add or install new windows to your home.
1) Save Money:
You’d be surprised to find out how much money replacing your windows could save you yearly:
According to EnergyStar.gov you can expect to save $126–$465 a year when replacing single-pane windows
$27- $111 a year over double-pane, clear glass replacement windows or even more if the older windows were not sealed properly. All of these savings do not even include the potential savings that can be earned by allowing natural light to illuminate your home!
2) Increase Resale Value:
Not only do new windows save you money throughout the year but a $10,000 expenditure on new windows can bump up an asking price on a house by about $8,500, according to ISoldMyHouse.com, thats an 85 percent ROI!
That means new window installations now, could actually more than buy themselves after only 5 years( by saving $300 dollars a year)!
3)Did we mention Resale value?
Adding a window in the right space can completely alter the perception of the area. Got a tiny bathroom? Adding a window above the bathtub can expand the appearance into a relaxing bathing nook. The same goes for tiny kitchens, a well placed window above a sink can make even the smallest of kitchens feel a lot larger (and brighter). Having a window can change any room from being a glorified closet to a welcoming home safe space.
4) Overall happiness:
Maybe we are biased here (probably), but opening your home to the environment, letting in fresh air, and creating a space that extends out from the interior is truly priceless. Studies have shown that working next to a window can actually double your alertness! Not only does sunlight improve your workflow, it can even effect you general health (Not making this stuff up)
so hey, thats motivation enough right?
