The importance of clean windows when selling your property

Would you go for a job interview without brushing your teeth? You probably won’t! Why? Because that’s no way to create an excellent first impression. In the same way, putting your property for sale without an adequately cleaned window will make a negative first impression on buyers.

The post explores the benefits of cleaning your windows before listing your property for sale:

  • Clean windows create a bright and lively living environment.

It’s no surprise that clean windows allow more natural light to enter your home. This creates a bright and lively environment within the rooms. What’s more, it creates an illusion of a bigger living space as dark corners are eliminated. All these make a good impression on buyers as buyers love bigger and well-ventilated rooms.

  • Enhances the curb appeal of your home

You want your property to stand out attractively when viewed from the street. Clean windows are a necessary step towards achieving good curb appeal. A report by the National Association of Realtors showed that boosting the curb appeal of your property can make your home sell faster by 49%.

  • Boost return on investment

In a study by Money Magazine, they found that clean windows can provide up to 769% return on investment during home sales. This means that every $100 spent on window cleaning yields $767 in return. Why not that advantage of this spectacular investment?

  • It gives your home a ‘move-in’ ready feel.

More than 95% of home buyers want a property ready to move into. If your windows look dirty with grime, pollen grains, and dust covering the screen, it doesn’t give that feeling. Even worse, it may create doubt in the buyer’s mind as their attention gets focused on those dirty spots. Avoid all of that by cleaning your windows before selling your property.

  • Highlight your homes architectural features

Dirty windows distract home buyers from the impressive architectural features of your building. Thankfully, cleaning your windows can help home buyers fully appreciate the structural architecture of your building.

  1. I appreciate you saying that clean windows let more light into your house. I just returned to my residence after spending a year in another place. After being away from home for a year and not washing the windows, they are very dirty. I’ll make a call to a window cleaning company to assist me with washing the windows.
