If you’re considering getting new windows to increase the value of your home, then you may be wondering what your ROI may be on the expense. According to a report by HomeLight, homeowners can expect to spend an average of $12,000 to replace all of the windows in their home, and they can expect to recoup about 80% of that cost when they sell.
Now, replacing older windows can have other financial benefits including an improvement in the home’s curb appeal and a significant decrease in energy costs, so it may make sense to get new windows if you plan to stay in the home for a while.
We don’t frequently recommend replacing windows to increase home value for homeowners looking to sell because they typically won’t recoup the costs. That being said, in some cases, especially if the windows are in poor condition, replacing them before listing may be worth it. The best way to find out is to request a free consultation with one of our Home Improvement Consultants who will work with the real estate agent and homeowner to determine which updates (including replacing windows) will add value to a home and increase the home seller’s profit.
