  • It may or may not add value, as the cost of putting it in might not be recouped on sale. But it will increase saleability.

  • I don't think you would get any more money with the double glazing and it would cost you more than you will again, double glazing is seen as a standard feature now

  • We would suggest that that you contact a few of the local agents in the area. They will be able to give you advice and information on the area that you are interested in. It’s worth doing some research on the Internet too. Good Luck!

  • You won't recoup any more than the double glazing costs and depending on how good the salesman is, you might even lose money. Let the buyer decide what glazing they want in their home. If you put in white UPVC windows in an older property the buyer might think it's out of character and they may have preferred to pay for a less contemporary look. Once you decide to sell, let your house go and leave the buyer to make it their own.
