Do I Need A Roof Replacement Before Selling My Home?

It can be stressful when selling a home. You want to make sure it is in the best condition possible to get a good price. Your roof is a big factor in the worth of your home. It is a barrier that protects you and your family from the outside elements. But, should you consider replacing your roof prior to selling your home? The answer is, yes! 

Let’s go over some reasons as to why a roof replacement is a good consideration. 

Adds to the Value of Your Home 

Your roof is one of the first things a customer will notice. A buyer will be able to tell if your roof is clearly in need of a replacement, if it is satisfactory, or if it is new. Replacing your roof can up the value of your home because it’s something buyers won’t have to deal with. It can also make your home look more appealing from the outside. A new roof can be attractive, so it will catch the eye of potential buyers. 

Additionally, if you choose to stay in your home instead of selling, you have a brand new roof!

Replaced Roof = Happy Buyer 

Many buyers may not be enticed by the idea of having to replace the roof after buying the home. Typically, a buyer will want a home with minimal renovations needed. If you choose to replace your roof, it could attract a buyer that will pay more. It is a worthwhile investment, especially if you want your home to sell for what you are asking, or above. So, it is best to deal with your roof before putting it on the market.
