Should we 'Do Windows'?
We plan on listing our 20 year old home sometime next year, we've updated almost everything including:
HVAC, roof/gutters, re-routed plumbing/extended gas lines, installed new and refinished existing hardwoods, new paint (including trim) and carpeting, granite counters, high-end custom tile, under-mount sinks, all new fixtures (lighting, faucets, tubs, showers) up to and including floor registers and door hardware, new exterior doors, plantation blinds etc., the list goes on and on. The only thing we haven't done is replace all our windows.
Kitchen windows were replaced and it was $1800. We really don't want to spend another 15K or more to replace the rest, though they need it. Seals are not broken they're just wood windows whose time has come. Will it hurt our bottom line much if we elect not to do the rest of the windows and, if we do, will we re-coup the cost? Should we offer a window credit in the sale price? Will older windows be an inspection red-flag? So, should we do windows?
