Windows & Doors Installation Services London, Ontario
Real estate values in Ontario have fully recovered since the 2007 recession. Home sales in London were particularly good in 2015, recording the second highest sales in the history of the city of 366,000 plus residents. Actually, realtors in the region claim that sales increased by 9.9 percent since 2014.
The average cost of a home in London is $264,435, which represents a 4.1 percent increase in the period 2014/15 – but more growth is expected in the following years due to increased job opportunities, lower unemployment, and affordable carrying costs. Migration is also expected to support the demand for housing in 2016 far more than it has over the last several years. This is because there is data suggesting that immigrants who came to Canada in 2009/10 are beginning to consider entry into the housing market.
Another market segment that is likely to increase home sales is the 25-34 year old population.
With the housing market looking this good, anyone looking to sell their home has a good chance of not only selling their property fast, but also making the biggest profits possible. This is where the professionals at Landmark Home Solutions come in. We are a family-run business that has been providing premier window and door designs and solutions for the last three decades, and we can help transform your home so it’s attractive to home buyers.
The impact of new doors and windows in selling your home
To begin with, anyone selling a home must understand the importance of curb appeal. Before a potential buyer enters your home, they can determine whether or not they like the place from how it looks from the outside. This includes, among other things, the front door and front windows.
Your front door has worked tirelessly to usher in you, your family, and your guests, while providing a tight seal to keep the harsh outside weather out. When it’s time for you to leave, it is best to get a new door to usher in the new occupants.
Replacing an old front door, preferably with a new steel door, drastically boosts your curb appeal and yields the best return on investment. If you pick the right door to match the style of your home, the Remodelling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value 2015 Index states that you can get a 101.8 percent return on investment!
A new Fiberglass door would give you ROI of 72 percent, while going for a grand entrance with Fiberglass would give 67.6 percent return on investment.
Another equally rewarding home improvement project is the window replacement. According to Angie’s List, you can expect a 77 percent ROI by installing new windows. The problem with windows that are over 15 years old is that they cause higher heating bills during the winter months, and higher cooling bills during the summer months.
Home sellers in London are increasingly realising the importance of window and door replacements, considering that these replacements accounted for 44 percent of all home remodelling projects in 2015. These included entry door replacement, steel, and window replacement, with ROIs of 78.8 percent, 72 percent, and 72.9 percent, respectively.
Whether you are looking to install new windows and doors as part of your home remodelling project, or simply looking to increase the value of your home with the best ROI, Landmark Home Solutions can help you with your home improvement project.
