First time buyers, whether renting or living with their parents, are often an attractive type of home buyer for sellers as they are chain-free. The process of selling your home should therefore be quicker. If you have a property for sale in Sheffield, here’s how you can make it more attractive to first time buyers.

Do your window frames have cracking paint? Is the double glazing intact?

Research has illustrated that the average value of a home increases by up to 10% when new double glazed windows are installed. Buyers will be more likely to buy a home with newer windows, as they won’t need to replace them themselves.

The most installed window in Britain is the UPVC casement window because they are affordable, easy to maintain, energy efficient and look good installed into any style home. If you have old wooden windows, single glazed windows, or double glazed windows over 10-15 years old, it might be worth considering replacing them if you’re planning on putting your property up for sale. This investment could see your house sell much quicker and potentially for a better price.

What makes double glazed uPVC windows attractive to first time buyers?

  • They are a cost-effective way to improve a home’s energy efficiency
  • They provide aesthetic appeal thanks to plenty of colour choices and woodgrain effects
  • They are the most popular window for UK homeowners, and are the window of choice for a variety of home improvement projects
  • Fitted with an advanced multi-point locking system for a high level of security

Are your doors secure?

Not only is your front door the first thing potential buyers are met with at your home, but it’s also the main entrance to your home, so it is imperative it is as a secure as possible. If you have an older door that has seen better days, this could be off putting to first time buyers, and you may find it hard to sell.

By investing in a new front door, you’ll likely sell your home faster and for a better price. In terms of what door to choose, we recommend a composite door. Composite doors are great value for money and there is no way that the addition of a new composite front door will not enhance the value of your property. They are excellent quality, durable, and known for their enhanced security features. They are also extremely low maintenance and easy to look after, making them a reliable and hassle free benefit for first time buyers.

Other things to think about before putting your property up for sale in Sheffield:

  • Is your plumbing in good condition?
  • Has your boiler been serviced recently?
  • Give your garden a tidy
  • Is there any damp? If so, make sure this is addressed before selling.
  • First impressions are everything – make sure your home is newly decorated (if appropriate), fresh-smelling, light and airy, and generally appealing.

Brilliant company from all we’ve dealt with, right through to the fitters, to the follow-up emails making sure everything was ok. Having used you before and after having work done to my property, I thought you the only obvious choice to return. Was a little worried as I’d had insulated render fitted and was concerned about the removal and refitting into the same size opening, and the damage it would cause. No worries, it seems. Each to their own trade as they say, and I’m glad they managed it and left me in no doubt, another great job done. Many thanks to you all. And see you in 15 years again?

After a fair few months of looking for a good window provider we can say we are one hundred percent happy with Global. They exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Michael with the quote, the lovely ladies from the office and Andy and Josh who fitted our seven windows and front door. Very professional, good quality, quick and efficient work. A pleasure to work with such a team. Our next step is the conservatory with Global. Thank you and well done to all.

Excellent Service

My mum wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic service Global windows have given her following her burglary. From start to finish they reassured her the replacement patio doors would be robust and fitted as quickly as possible to ensure the property was secured. On the day of fitting the fitters arrived promptly and installed the doors with no mess. The gentleman who organised this from Global (sorry she couldn’t remember his name) came out to check the doors and to see mum was happy with them brought her a beautiful bunch of flowers. Mum was over the moon. Thank you so much.

We decided to re-use this Company despite moving house and County. Global were helpful and very professional at all stages of the installation. We found all their staff friendly and knowledgeable. Dates given, returning phone calls etc. were all met. The price was very competitive, the quality of their products was excellent with a good range of colours and styles. The fitters were very hardworking, managed to get the work done in one day rather than the expected 2, mainly due to the fact they worked as a team, didn’t take breaks and clearly knew their job. Great company.
