Have you been thinking about taking advantage of the seller's market we’re in? According to Zillow.com now is the best time to do it! Even though houses are selling like hotcakes, it’s important to be smart about the sale of your house. To get the best price, it's often necessary to make changes to your home. One of the easiest things you can do is replace the roof.
We understand that it might not seem easy at first. In fact, you’re probably asking yourself, is that step avoidable? Klaus Roofing of Cincinnati makes the process easy. Let’s dive into why a roof replacement is the best choice for your home before you put it on the market.
There are a couple of ways to tell if you need a new roof on your house. Earlier this year, we discussed how to determine the health of your roof. We do this by examining the interior and exterior of your home. If there are water spots on your walls or ceiling, it’s likely a problem with the roof or plumbing. If you notice missing shingles or granules, odds are it's time to replace the roof.
Another rule of thumb for determining whether you need a new roof is age. The average lifespan of a roof is 30 years. If you are not sure how old your roof is, it’s time to replace it. By replacing your roof with our IKO architectural shingles you can add another bargaining chip to the offering plate. Klaus Roofing of Cincinnati offers a 50-year transferable warranty when your roof is installed The Klaus Roofing Way. The manufacturer also offers a limited lifetime warranty.
There’s no denying that a new roof can make a house look fresh. Pick the right color and mix it with our seamless aluminum, and your house is sure to catch the eye of potential buyers. That's great news for you! The more you can attract people to your home, the less time it spends on the market. The less time your house is on the market, the faster you can move on to bigger and better things! Or smaller and better things if you're planning on downsizing.
If your roof has seen weather damage or if it’s older than 10 years, buyers and lenders start to get a little leary of investing. New homeowners won't want to invest their time, energy, and money on a roof that they need to fix within a year or two after purchase. Likewise, if the roof is in bad shape, the bank could deny the buyer's home loan because the investment is too risky.
Ultimately, negotiations and offers that don’t get approved waste time and energy. Don’t let your roof be the reason you get caught up in the game. Be proactive and schedule your estimate today.
Can we promise a 100% return on investment when you replace your roof? Unfortunately, we can’t. However, we can greatly improve your chances of getting your asking price. Who knows, with the housing market as hot as it is for sellers right now, you may just get lucky and get an offer way above your wildest dreams.
