Roofing contractors are often asked if it is wise to replace the roof of your home before selling. New roofing projects can dramatically improve curb appeal and increase the value of your property before you decide to sell. A new roof is a great idea if you are planning to renovate your home prior to selling it, especially if the previous roofing system was in disrepair.
The Hassle of a Roofing Project
If you have to do a reroofing project, many prospective buyers may not be interested in your house. A new homeowner is unlikely to want to start a major project right away. You may want to consider re-roofing your house before listing your home on the market if you need to replace your roof in the next few years.
Giving You an Edge
A new roof will give your home an edge in the market over another house in the same neighborhood. It’s not necessary that a new roof will add tens or thousands of dollars in value to the market, but it is a great way for you to ensure you have a competitive edge with similar homes within your budget.
Prepare for Roof Inspection
A professional roof inspection is also performed by many prospective homebuyers today before they purchase a house. It is wise to prepare your home so that a prospective buyer can feel at ease. You may even be able to avoid the cost of an inspection because your roof looks brand new.
