Buying or Selling a Home? Don’t Forget the Roof!

When you’re buying or selling a home it is easy to overlook the condition of your roof. Don’t make that mistake! The roof is one of your home’s most important features, your “first line of defense” against the elements. A healthy roof makes for a more attractive and longer-lasting home.

When you’re selling

If you want your home to sell quickly and at top dollar, it makes sense to make sure your roof is in good shape—even in a seller’s market. It only stands to reason. Given a choice between your home, with a beautiful new roof, and a similar house whose roof needs repair or replacement, buyers are more likely to pick yours. It won’t slow your process down— full roof replacements typically take only one day. With a beautiful, structurally sound roof, your house might sell even faster.

When you’re buying

As a buyer, you need to be sure the house you’re thinking of purchasing has a healthy roof with plenty of life left in it. If it doesn’t, you’ll want to negotiate your purchase price accordingly, and budget the upcoming roof repairs or replacement. You don’t want to purchase that dream home only to find out later about costs you didn’t account for in your purchase offer.
