    The problem with window treatments is that by tradition appraisers do not recognize them in value. I have been appraising for thirty years, and I’ve always thought this prejudice bordered on insanity. Appraisers cheerfully value upgraded or missing appliances, even free-standing ones, depending on the customs of the region, with black letter dollar adjustments. Window treatments, which may be simple and affordable as the author suggests, but which in upper-end homes may be extremely elaborate and expensive, get short shrift.

    An appliance can be wheeled out of a house by any numb-skull with a hand-truck and re-installed elsewhere. Window treatments are by definition customized for their environment and can rarely be transplanted successfully.

    I should say that any experienced appraiser understands the value of both curb and interior appeal, and if he/she has not been completely cowed by the AMC will find a way to reflect these attributes in some way in value. But it is a problem. I recommend homeowners approach this sort of amenity prudently but not over-cautiously. If you want to live in a beautiful house, do so. You’ll enjoy it, and when the time comes to show it to other people, they will too.
