As house prices continue to remain steady in the Bay Area, people are still engaging in the venture of “house flipping.” This involves finding a house with a relatively moderate price tag, due to its poor condition or outdated finishes, then fixing it up, and selling it for a profit. If you’ve seen the popular television shows that depict the process of house flipping, you know that there are people out there making a good amount of money doing this!
If you’re flipping a house and want to appeal to discerning buyers looking for a turnkey home, one thing you should definitely consider doing is replacing the windows and patio doors throughout the home. New windows and doors can give a house an instant upgrade. It will look great in your real estate photos and will also make a difference in the curb appeal of the home (very important for resale).
Replacement Windows: A Great Selling Feature for Flipped Homes
Not only do new windows look great from the outside, but they can also have an impact once your potential buyers are inside the home. The windows we sell at Custom Exchange, from respected manufacturers like Simonton and Monte Verde Windows, can do a lot to make the inside of the home much quieter. If your home is on a busy street or near a school or fire station, windows with good sound control can make all the difference for a potential buyer.
With quality new windows, you can also tout the energy efficiency of the home. Many of today’s buyers are very conscious of their personal contribution to the state of our environment. They are looking for a home with eco-friendly features, like energy-efficient windows and doors.

Double Lifetime Warranties on Replacement Windows
As we mentioned in this previous blog post, house flippers should look for replacement windows that have a transferrable double lifetime warranty, like Simonton Windows. That way, a house flipper can pass on the window warranty to the buyer of their home, and the new homeowner will be covered if anything goes wrong with the new windows.
