Plan on listing your house any time soon? No doubt, you’ll want to sell it quickly and at your asking price. To optimize a home sale, owners are now looking at optimizing their home’s curb appeal.
Why curb appeal? Curb appeal matters because many people consider touring your home will do a quick drive-by first, deciding at the very moment that they want to take a look at the inside of your home. If buyers do choose to tour your home, first impressions count.
When it comes to drive-by decisions, potential buyers can be harsh. The cracks in the sidewalk, the cluttered toys in the driveway, and the dingy windows could cost you a showing.
One aspect of curb appeal that works is a home that showcases clean windows. Windows bring natural light into the house, creating an appealing aesthetic for prospective buyers. Clean windows can help sell a home because:
Return on Investment. Before they’ve toured your home, potential buyers are already assessing your home for what they can change to make it “their home.” Clean windows give them one less thing to worry about, realizing they do not have to replace the windows later. According to Money Magazine, window washing is the home improvement project with the highest return on investment at 768%, topping the list of tasks.
Affordable staging. According to the National Association of Realtors, “Curb appeal sells 49% of all houses.” Cleaning the windows is also the least expensive home staging activity.
Increase Home Value. Regular window cleaning can help increase your home’s value because buyers love knowing the property was well maintained. Regular window cleaning creates an attractive aesthetic, indicating that your home is a good investment for any buyer.
Feng Shui. According to Realtor.com, many homeowners believe in the principles of Feng Shui. Feng Shui promotes harmony through home layout and furniture placement. It furthers the idea that good energy comes through bright, vibrant ambiance filtering through a home’s windows.
