So, you are looking to sell your home in Kent? I bet you know that the current housing market is very competitive as it nearly always is. With this in mind, you are probably thinking about what you can do to get the most value from your home.
Double glazing is generally added as standard to new homes being built, but some older properties still have single glazed windows which will put a strain on heating bills. Here is some reasons why you should consider getting double glazing installed to help in selling your home. You may want to consider getting double glazing from FineLine Windows.
Many people are put off by single glazing
Some potential buyers may be put off by the fact that you only have single glazing because it’s either going to cost them in heating bills or cost them in being replacing. Believe me, they are probably reading the property details and loving the property but they find out about the single glazing and stall.
You can bet they are probably doing the maths to work out what double glazing will cost to be installed once they’ve bought the property. With people on strict budgets, this may not be something they want to do themselves and so they may be searching for properties with it already installed.
It will help your EPC rating
Your Energy Performance Certificate rating is super important. You can get rated from A which is very efficient to G which is inefficient. An EPC is now a requirement of every rented and sold property so you will want to make sure you have a decent rating when it comes to the time you are selling your home.
The EPC rating tells you (and potential buyers) how energy efficient the home is and lets them know how costly it will be to heat and light – and it will also tell them what the carbon dioxide emissions are likely to be. You will need to get an EPC to sell your home so it’s a good idea to make the improvements before selling. Double glazing will certainly help you boost your rating rather than having single glazing!
You will feel the benefit
If you are putting your house up for sale, you know it may not sell straight away due to the competitive market so upgrading to double glazing or triple glazing is not only for the benefit of your sale but will benefit you too. With your single glazing, you may have found the heat is getting out and the cold is getting in – this is much less likely to happen with double glazing! Whilst you are waiting for your sale or for the paperwork to go through, you can be happy and warm in your home!
