I found a good explanation from Quora on would vs. would have.

“Would” implies a person’s willingness in the future to do something, but with a condition, as in “I would go tomorrow, but I can’t, because I have another commitment.”

“Would have” implies a persons’ willingness in the past to do something but which did not happen, as in “I would have gone yesterday, since I thought I was free at that time, but a previous commitment prevented me from going.”
