Did you know window treatments can actually make your house worth more? It’s often a race for increased curb appeal and attracting a high selling price. Having sleek shutters or useful blinds already installed can make a house far more attractive to buyers.
Buying Now Saves Money Later
If you sell your house with pre-installed custom blinds or shades, buyers will be able to see that as a money-saving opportunity twice over. For one, they won’t have to worry about measuring, pricing, picking and installing their own window treatments later on. They also will be buying a house that’s automatically more energy efficient. Window treatments help block out harmful sun and trap in cool air, reducing energy costs and keeping their new home cooler in the summer and more temperate in the winter.
Stand Out From The Crowd
Buyers are often browsing hundreds of homes online and visiting a great many in person. In a sea of similar homes, it’s the details that will stick in their minds. After seeing back-to-back houses with bare windows, pulling up to a home with installed shutters will not only stand out for being different but will already make the house look and feel like a home to them.
Window coverings add dimension to rooms and give a house a touch of personality, making your home more than just a blank set of walls.
Custom v. Basic Window Treatments
Presenting a house with blinds, shades or shutters that have been hand-selected shows your potential buyers that this is a house that has been cared for. Custom window treatments are a unique bit of attention to detail. If you can show people that you have put enough care into the house to adorn it with the perfect set of blinds, it also lets them know that likely the rest of the house’s needs have been just as well-cared for.
