According to Trulia, the go-to organization of many people when it comes to real estate, summer is a great time for the industry. If you’re planning to sell your home this year, now is your chance to make last-minute improvements. Our suggestion? Replace your old windows with decorative units.
The Beauty of Decorative Windows
When it comes to boosting curb appeal, your best bet would be to install decorative windows. Alside offers a sizeable array of high quality vinyl units, designed especially to create the best initial impressions.
If your home has classic-looking interiors, consider getting a unit with beveled-leaded glass. This timelessly beautiful glass work is available in four different designs:
Alside handcrafts each leaded glass unit. Every design features exquisite hand-cut glass and crystal bevel clusters. Camings are customizable; you can choose to have them made with brass, pewter, or lead materials.
With windows, every detail is important, which is why we suggest looking into Alside’s elegant grid options. There’s a grid style to match almost every architectural style. Whether your home gives off a contemporary or old-world vibe, we’ll help find the pattern that’s right for you. Here are our recommendations:
- Colonial: This simple and clean-looking design is ideal for traditional houses.
- Diamond: Gives off a luxurious feel that’s a great fit for upscale neighborhoods.
- Prairie or Double Prairie: This pattern features smooth thin lines that maximize viewing area and add an interesting design detail at the same time.
The Importance of First Impressions
Each year, Remodeling magazine releases a list of home improvement projects that score big among home buyers. Based on the “2015 Cost Vs. Value” report, smaller-scale remodels that target the exterior part of the home pay off big-time.
A midrange window replacement in the East North Central region beat out fancier projects such as bathroom renovation (ROI: 60.4%), home office remodel (ROI: 40.0%), and master suite addition (ROI: 53.5%). It shouldn’t be that surprising, if you really think about it. After all, windows figure prominently in a house’s exteriors. This means, they have a lot to contribute to curb appeal, which is one of the things that may attract buyers to a home.
As it turns out, installing midrange vinyl replacement windows in Michigan and the rest of East North Central U.S. can give back up to 74.3% of your investment. That alone is impressive, but just imagine how much a unit with beveled-leaded glass work and expertly crafted grids can recoup.
