When thinking of selling their home, a homeowner will add a coat of paint, spruce up the yard and even update some appliances. But there is potentially no greater impact to a home’s value than the roof.
- A faulty roof can be a deal killer. Because of the expense and hassle involved, most buyers will walk away from a potential deal because of roofing issues.
- Roofing problems can lower the value of a home. If problems come out in the buyer’s home inspection, roofing issues will result in either lowering the price of the home or replacing the roof prior to the sale going through.
- A new roof is a major selling point. Knowing that the roof is new – especially on an older point – alleviates a buyer’s worries and assures them they won’t have to worry about this problem for years to come.
- A new roof can enhance curb appeal. Certainly an old roof with shingles missing will hurt curb appeal – even online listings – but a new roof can make a home look well-cared for.
