Improved Real Estate Values
Homes sell better if they have a quiet environment. We have many customers that vastly improved the values of their homes by adding soundproofing. If you have a noisy approach to your home, but a quiet environment when you enter it, it is impressive to most home buyers and they do not dismiss your home as unacceptable as quickly as they will if it is noisy inside the residence. Many customers credit our windows with selling their homes quicker and at a better price. A large number of our customers are buying from us because they did not realize how noisy their new home would be and greatly benefited from soundproofing.
One developer built a dozen homes near a freeway with a sound wall. The upstairs bedrooms overlooked the sound wall and were very noisy. He did not install our soundproofing windows, but offered them as an upgrade. Almost all of the buyers bought the upgrade.
Near the end of the project the developer emphatically stated:
“It took me over a year to sell these homes in this active Northern California housing market (1999). If I would have just installed your windows in all the homes to begin with I KNOW I would have sold all of them within 4 months. The interest I would have saved would have paid for the windows several times over. I won’t make that mistake again.”
He bought windows for the last three remaining homes and sold them within just a few weeks.
Location, Location, Location is true. Many good locations are noisy locations. If you can add “but with no noise”, it is an even better location.
