Tips to selling your Colorado home by Quality Roofing

When buyers are looking for a “fixer-upper”, this is not what they want. Fix your roof before putting your home on the market.

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.)
