No matter what happens to the central Florida real estate market in our fluctuating economy, a new roof can bring even more value to your home and help you sell it more quickly. So if you want to sell your house fast and get the best price, you should consider a roof replacement before putting your home on the market.
A new roof improves your home’s curb appeal. Curb appeal is one of the most important factors in selling your home, and a brand new roof adds sparkle to the home’s exterior. In fact, it is one of the first things a potential buyer sees. If your current roof looks old and weathered, buyers may think you have not adequately maintained the entire home and might just drive on by to the next home for sale.
A new roof is also a selling point for your real estate agent. With the tropical weather in central Florida being a concerning factor, your roof protects your home from severe storm and hurricane damage. It is often one of the first questions a buyer asks. How old is the roof? Documentation of a recent roof replacement and a transferrable reroof warranty offers your buyer peace of mind.
In a competitive market, a new roof might be the deciding factor in which home a buyer selects. Buyers typically have many homes they are comparing, and a major upgrade like a roof replacement could make your home the more attractive choice.
The age of a roof can also make or break a required home inspection for many loans. Therefore, a new roof will significantly help the appraisal and approval process for the buyer.
