You might wonder if there’s any benefit in putting a new roof on your home if you intend to list it for sale. The short answer is that a new roof could greatly assist with the sale of your home. The investment in a new roof could also be much less than you might anticipate. Here’s a closer look at why you should consider hiring a roofing company to install a new roof before you sell your home.
A Potentially Good Return on Investment
A new roof can be reasonably affordable, especially when it generates a good return on your investment. According to Home365, a new roof could return 85% of your investment when you sell your home. If you were to obtain a nearly 85% return on the cost to install a new roof, the project would become much more affordable and very much worth the effort.
Home Curb Appeal Improvements
A well-built rooftop helps to make your home look much cleaner and more appealing for those who view it from the street or neighboring properties. Curb appeal is a very important element in determining a home’s value. When a prospective buyer visits your home, the exterior and roof help to generate a better first impression when they look great and are in excellent condition.
A Better Selling Price
When a good roofing company puts a great new roof on your home that’s for sale, you have a much better chance of selling it for much closer to your asking price. A roof inspection could confirm the roof is in great shape and should last for decades, which helps a potential buyer to decide to make an offer on your home. The higher the selling price, the more you get back on the cost to replace the roof and make other improvements that make your home much more appealing to more prospective buyers.
A new roof can help your home spend less time listed for sale. The better its condition, the more desirable your home is, and the more likely someone will buy it after a relatively short time. The faster you can sell your home, the faster you can move into a new home.
These are just a few reasons you should get your roof replaced by professionals before you sell it. You can get a free estimate on the cost of a new roof when you call or visit RJW Renovations, LLC today. We look forward to hearing from you.
