The transactions between buying and selling a home can be one of the most rewarding, yet complicated purchases between two parties. A home is not only a huge financial investment, but also an investment of your safety and health. We at Bell Roofing want to remind you of some of the issues that can arise in the purchase or sale of a home. We are an established Atlanta roofing company and we know how your roof can impact you.
Considering Selling Your Home?
If you are considering selling you home the condition of your roof is something you need to take into consideration when putting your house on the market. The condition of your home’s roof is one of the major factors that potential buyers are looking at when choosing a home. If you are serious about selling your home and your home is not in a good condition, we recommend replacing your roof. This not only draws more attention to buyers but also allows for a higher valuation of your home. Replacing your roof might not be necessary and minor roof repair could be sufficient. An important thing to consider is what the competition is like in your area. If you are really trying to stand out to potential buyers, a newly repair or replaced roof, is a major attraction.
Buying A Home?
When buying a home, you must consider the home’s roof! You can tell the condition of a home’s roof from a thorough home inspection. If the roof is not new you must consider the potential financial obligation this will be for you. An older roof can have huge impacts if not anticipated. A home inspector can give you detailed information about the age of your potential home’s roof and how much estimated time you have until you can expect repairs. The best thing about this knowledge is that it can give you some negotiating leverage if your roof repair costs are extensive.
If you have any question when it comes to the sale or purchase of a home and its roof do not hesitate to call us, Bell Roofing, your expert Atlanta roofers.
