If you’re looking to move to a new location with your family, you’ll want to first focus on the residential property you’ll be leaving behind. Check the areas of your home that your prospects will most likely inspect, like your roof. If the signs of wear and tear are too obvious when seen from the ground, you’ll want to have it repaired or replaced before having your home listed. Here’s why.
An unfixed roof can lower your property’s market value significantly. And when prospective buyers come across your home, expect them to lower the asking price. In the worst-case scenario, you may only get a few offers from home buyers, with most of them showing disinterest as soon as they find a better-looking property within the same area. If you want to minimize negotiations and ensure a faster transaction, get your roof in top condition through a repair or replacement before selling.
Attracting More Home Buyers
With a newly repaired or replaced roof, your home gets added appeal compared to other homes that are listed for sale, leading to inquiries from many potential buyers. You can also step it up a notch by investing in gutter installation. Mentioning that your home has new roofing and gutter systems is a surefire way to attract prospects to your property.
Giving the New Homeowner Peace of Mind
Most home buyers look for a turnkey home; that is, a property they can immediately move into without it needing work. When you have the roof repaired or replaced prior to selling, you give the potential new homeowners peace of mind knowing that they won’t have to worry about leaks or other issues a few weeks or months after making a significant purchase.
