The housing market is extremely competitive. According to Realtor.ca, the first step in selling your home is to make it as attractive as possible by updating certain key elements. Prospective consumers are interested in functional aspects, such as insulation factors and the age of the roof, as well as curb appeal and interior characteristics. Glass Doctor® of North Vancouver is able to assist your selling process by making it easy to upgrade the areas that buyers rank highest when making their decision.
An Energy-Saving Approach: Improve Value
Savvy house shoppers understand the value of reduced energy costs. Double pane windows insulate better than their single pane counterparts. The air space between the glass panes forms an effective insulator, keeping temperature transference to a minimum. In fact, Remodeling Magazine’s 2016 Cost vs. Value Report found that upgrading to double pane windows offers homeowners one of the best returns when selling their home.
Moreover, Low-emissivity (Low-E) glass provides additional insulation by blocking the ultra-violet (UV) light that causes the greenhouse effect. Homes stay cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Plus, your furniture, carpets, and upholsteries are protected from paling discolouration.
Safety Enhancements: Provide Peace of Mind
Home buyers also value security features. Installing impact-resistant glass in patio doors, garage doors, and double pane windows improves the safety of your home, creating a key selling point. Tempered, laminated, or similar specialty glass items won’t shatter upon impact and are designed to enhance home security. This is an especially attractive feature to buyers with small children or elderly occupants.
