If you are considering putting your home on the market, don’t underestimate the importance of having your roof inspected. A quality roof in good shape can be an added bonus to your home’s value.
If your roof is in need of repair, it can create several different issues with selling. A solid roof communicates the seller’s dedication to regular home maintenance and eases the buyer’s minds that the home is well maintained. When the roof is in disrepair, the buyer might become concerned that there are hidden issues not easily found via inspection.
For instance, if there is evidence of water damage from a poorly maintained roof, the buyer could become fearful of mold and pull out of the sale. In addition, poor insulation leads to high energy bills which can be another cause for the buyer to walk. Finally, the roof might need to be replaced. It would be difficult to entice a buyer to purchase a home and then turn around and spend the additional money on a new roof.
The best solution? Have your roof inspected and repaired or replaced before placing your home on the market. Of all the improvements that you make, a new roof signifies to the buyer that you, as a homeowner, took your investment seriously, and that they are buying a home that will continue to be a good investment for them.
