If you are thinking of selling your home, a faulty roof is might be a deal breakers!
Although many people look for a good “fixer upper” there are a few deal breakers that will make any buyer turn around and walk straight back out the door, a bad roof is a major reason many buyers refrain from making an offer.
Increase your home’s value by fixing the roof
Even the handiest buyers, those who intend to gut the home and remodel everything exactly to their liking, they are still looking for a tight home envelope. That includes a functioning roofing system. Fixer upper and DIY buyers aren’t looking to take on major exterior reconstruction projects; they want to fix the interior of the home. So, if you’re thinking of leaving a leaky, damaged, old, or worn down roof for the new owner, you may be waiting a long time.
You can argue about the value of painting, fixing a wobbly doorknob, or caulking a drafty window, but every realtor will tell you that investing in a new roof, or some roofing repair service before putting your home on the market will give you a significant return on investment (ROI.)
Roofing is an expensive project to have to take on when selling a home, but it will increase the value of your home and also increase your chances of selling your home promptly. And, if you plan your roofing project in the off season (spring and early summer) you may just be able to save a little. Starting to research potential roofers and roofing solutions in the winter will give you the best chance of being able to book the best roofer for the job as soon as the weather is good.
