Installing new windows in Jupiter, Florida

The Corona Virus Pandemic has many people migrating from their big-city homes down to the calm and relaxing Treasure Coast. With that, many homeowners are seeing this as the perfect opportunity to sell their homes. As you may know, when selling a home, it is vital to ensure it looks its best, especially if it’s advertised as a turn-key property.

When a homebuyer views a property, one of the first things they will notice is the exterior. This includes the quality of the landscape, the location of the property, exterior paint, and old or new windows.

And as the old saying goes, you only get one chance to make a good first impression.

Upon entering the property, you will often you will hear home shoppers make comments such as:

“I just love how these large windows let in so much natural light!”

“This home looks new. Was it recently built?”

To achieve a positive reaction from home buyers, you may need to take some action. 

Does the property need new windows? Or do the current windows look outdated and need a good window cleaning?

Let’s say you need new windows. One question that may present itself is will there be a return on the investment. To answer this question, let’s dig deeper.

The average cost to install windows in a home is around $12,000. Of course, this number can vary greatly depending on the size of the home, windows, and the quantity and quality of those windows. But we will work with this average number for now. 

Based on that average, you’ll likely add $9,672 at resale. This may sound surprising as you might have expected this number to be higher than the cost of the windows. Nonetheless, you will see an average of 80% ROI (return on investment). These numbers are based on The Homelight’s survey conducted in 2021.

As a homeowner, you may now wonder if it’s even worth embarking on a project that may not grant a larger ROI.  Our answer; it depends. Installing new windows may be beneficial to homeowners who are looking to sell their homes quickly.

New windows may also be a deal maker for home shoppers, just like old windows might be a deal-breaker.
