With all the emphasis on paint, staging and accessories when selling a home, there is one thing that is often overlooked. Windows can make a huge difference in the appeal of a home to buyers. The size and placement of windows affects everything from the character to the curb appeal of the home from the outside. On the inside, windows determine light, views, energy efficiency, and air flow. If you are selling your home take a look at your windows. Make sure they are clean and adding value to your home. Remember windows are the way your home is connected to its surroundings. If the landscape outside of your home is pleasing to the eye, pull back the curtains and shades and show off the view. If privacy is an issue or the outside view is undesirable,†you will need to enhance the view with shutters, shades, or window treatments. View your home from both the inside and outside, and at various times of the day to be aware of what potential buyers will see. This will allow you to correct any issues and play up any benefits. Essentially look at your home in a whole new light.
