Eyes may be the window to the soul.
But, at least in the housing market — and specifically, when it comes to remodeled homes — it’s exactly backwards.
Namely, the condition of the home’s windows frequently tell you everything you need to know about the quality (or lack thereof) of the remodel.
Show me a home that has high-quality replacement windows, and I’ll show you a home that’s been meticulously updated with fine finishes.
Conversely, when I see a remodeled home with cheap, new vinyl windows — or ancient windows artfully covered by fancy, new window treatments — it’s typically the case that the Seller cut other corners as well.
P.S.: As I like to tell clients, “there’s seldom just one cockroach.”
