Maximize Your Home Value With Smart Investments

For years, London, Ontario has lagged behind the rest of the province when it comes to real estate values. The real estate market has been long undervalued, but that’s all changing, thanks to a red-hot market driven by GTA growth that’s now spreading province-wide. Now, with rumours of a high-speed rail link connecting Windsor, London, Kitchener, Guelph, and Toronto, the promise of even further development and interconnectivity between the major population centres in Southwestern Ontario and Toronto means home values should only continue to improve. High-speed rail has the potential to put London only 80 minutes from Union Station – a reasonable commuting distance compared to traffic on the 401. It’s time for London homeowners to take advantage of the many factors at work making their homes more valuable.

Even now, the average price of a two-storey home in London, ON has surpassed $500,000, and buyers presently outnumber those putting their houses up for sale. Whether you want to put your home up for sale in the next year or two, or if you’re simply thinking about improving your home’s long-term value, investing in energy efficient windows is one of the smartest investments you can make when it comes to your return on investment.

Kitchens and bathrooms have long been high-yield renovations, but increasingly, younger and older homebuyers are looking for energy efficient windows and doors. Not only are younger generations looking more environmentally-conscious houses, people from all age groups are looking for ways to save on their ever-growing hydro bills. You’ve seen your own monthly expenses increase lately, so can you really blame them for wanting to save? Retirees, many of whom are moving to London from Toronto with disposable income to spend from selling their own homes, are willing to spend more today to spend less tomorrow when they’re living off of pensions.

Buying Energy Star windows, that use Low-E coatings, argon gas, spacers, and vinyl, wood, or wood-clad frames are an effective way to reduce expenses, and at Golden Windows, your window company in London, ON, we offer energy efficient products made to ISO-regulated standards. That means that every window that comes out of the Golden Windows factory performs to highly tested, rigorous standards fit for the Canadian climate.

We manufacture all of our windows in Kitchener, and we have showrooms in London as well as in Kitchener and Kanata. We service much of Ontario, but especially London, St. Thomas, Stratford, Chatham-Kent, Waterloo Region, and Wellington. In addition to top quality windows and doors, at Golden Windows, we also provide professional installation.

London has been benefiting from a variety of factors, from Toronto professionals who can work online to retirees moving to the region with a pocketful of cash from the GTA’s red-hot market. If you’re planning to sell in the near or long-term, get as much as you can with smart investments that today’s buyers are looking for.
