If selling your home is on your to-do list this summer, you likely have many things on your mind. Should you use a real estate agent or try to sell it yourself? How much of a negotiating cushion should you build into your asking price? Are there any home improvements you should do to increase your home's value and increase the likelihood that it will sell more quickly?

The Window Store's Suggestions

While the first two suggestions are beyond the realm of The Window Store's area of expertise, we do have suggestions for the last question. When it comes to those home improvements that potential home buyers value the most, we can point you in the right direction!

1. Roofing

The roof of your home is one of those systems that doesn't really get very much attention unless it fails in some way. However, like anything else, there is a certain time that you should consider replacing it. At the very least, having The Window Store come out to perform a thorough inspection of the roof will let you know where you stand in terms of its condition and longevity. We can provide you with a professional inspection that includes suggestions concerning the best approach for repairs and/or replacement.

2. Windows

There is a great deal of press in regard to the advantages of new windows in terms of increased comfort and energy savings—and for good reason! Today's windows from top manufacturers, such as ExoMaxx, provide a beautiful and effective way to increase your home's actual value as well as make it a more cost-effective investment for a new home buyer. Partner with The Window Store, and we can advise you on the best styles, colors, and tones to match your home and your goals!

3. Doors

A brand-new entry door is one of the best ways to welcome potential home buyers to your house. When you're thinking about replacing doors, though, don't forget about the other points of entry and exit in your home. Does the back door leading to the deck off the master bedroom stick? How smoothly does the sliding glass door move to allow you to enjoy your back porch? These are important considerations to think about when you are selling your home. Most home buyers want to be able to move right into their new home without having to fix or replace anything. Having any issues with the doors fixed prior to putting your home on the market can help!
