Before listing your Michigan home for sale, you may want to consider replacing old or outdated windows for a fresh look that buyers love. According to a report by the National Association of Home Builders, one of the features buyers look for in new homes is energy-efficient windows.
In fact, their survey showed nine out of 10 home buyers would prefer to buy a house that has energy-efficient upgrades than a house without those features even if they could save 2 to 3 percent on the purchase price. When buying a resale home, it reasons that buyers will place higher value on an older home updated with replacement windows, especially ones that bring in a lot of light and are stylish. When choosing replacement windows for your home, consider various options to entice prospective home buyers.Awning windows
Awning windows frames push out to allow in fresh breezes in spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms. You can choose different grille patterns to enhance the look of your space including Prairie, Farm House, Modified Prairie and Colonial. By consulting with a window expert, you can decide on details such as hardware finishes, screens and what kind of high-performance glass would work best for your budget.
When you are trying to make a statement with your windows, a good choice is the bay window for an office, kitchen or living room area. A bay window can add to the curb appeal if it’s for a window in the front of your home. Bay windows protect outward from the home. It’s fun to dress up bay windows with special drapery panels that can be held back with tassel tiebacks. Some people also construct a window seat in front of a bay window, which is another great selling feature for a home.
While picture windows are lovely in the living room of small, ranch-style homes, many large contemporary homes demand specialty windows that are as unique as the home itself. If you are renovating a Midcentury modern home, you may want to replace floor-to-ceiling windows. If your home is dark, it may be time to add clerestory windows or other specialty windows that make your home stand out.
