Why You Should Replace Your Roof Before Selling Your Home
 
Are you thinking about putting your home on the market? To get the most out of your investment, a residential roof replacement might be a great choice to boost your ROI, or at least save you time and effort during the sale process.
 

Increase Your Asking Price After a Roof Replacement

 
While it's a significant investment, a new roof is likely to recoup most of its upfront cost, as it's a top factor that home buyers look at when deciding on a home.
 

Save Time on Roof Repair Negotiations from Buyers

 
Many buyers will look for any excuse to offer less on your home than what you're asking, and an aging roof could reduce your sale price by thousands. Dedicating the time and money to a new roof now will save you the headache of a lengthy back-and-forth over purchase price later.
 

Maximize Eyes on Your Home and Speed Up the Sale Process

 
People don't want to put major improvements into a home they're just moving into. When buyers notice an older roof, they are more likely to skip seeing your home entirely. The more eyes on your property, the better, and likely the sooner you'll get the final offer settled.
 

Keep Lending Companies Satisfied with Adequate Roof Repairs

 
You might not care about the age of your roof when you list your home – let the next person deal with it. But you may come to care when the next person's mortgage company comes to do their own inspection of the property. If roof repairs are required, they may refuse to approve the loan or request the necessary fixes be completed before they will move forward with loaning any money.
