According to Realtors – roof replacement gives you 107% return on your investment!
Why is it so important for new homeowners to want the roof to be new?
- The cost to replace is high and with the added expense of a new mortgage it may not be in the budget
- They want to know they won’t be dealing with leaks/issues anytime soon
- They want to know their family and possessions will be safe
- They know their home is more valuable with new, update features
Based on the ROI for sellers and why it is important for a buyer to desire that project be complete it sounds like it is a worthwhile project for any new seller to consider. I know a lot of sellers prefer to just deduct the price of the roof from the sale of the house – which is not a bad idea however, why pass up the potential ROI on that project – that’s not too shabby of a return!
Other high ROI projects to consider
- Upgrades to kitchens and bathrooms
- New or refinished Hardwood Flooring
Thinking about putting your home on the market? Yes!
Then there is no time like the present to get a free roof inspection. It’s always good going into the real estate market to know what decisions you might be faced with during negotiations. Your realtor I’m sure will suggest everything you should do to get top dollar on your property – they are the experts in that area and will provide you with the best guidance. Selling your home is scary and exciting and often stressful. Be sure to use a reputable realtor and contractors – to create a hassle free experience as best as possible.
Can I transfer my roofing warranty?
Warranties can be transferred to the second owner of the roof as long as the transfer occurs within 60 days of the real estate transfer. If you have an Owens Corning shingle warranties can be transferred by calling 1-800-ROOFING. When you call, please be prepared to provide documentation including proof of purchase, proof of ownership and transfer fee based on the year your roof was installed.
When hiring a contractor check them out on Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List, Google Reviews, Yellow Pages, Facebook, etc. Make sure they are licensed, bonded and insured and that they are a local business – super important should you ever need to utilize the warranty that comes with your project.
