A new roof is always a powerful marketing tool when selling a home. Buyers appreciate a new roof because it reduces the hassle and expense of a reroof. A new roof, though, will not always increase your home value. It depends on the roof condition, real estate market conditions, and buyer desires. Your ever-dependable roofing contractor, Valley Vista Construction, Inc., explains further.
Your Roof’s Condition
Most buyers will be very reluctant to buy your home if the roof is not in good condition. They don’t want to spend money and energy on major roof repairs after purchasing a home. If your house has an old or a damaged roof, invest in a replacement to improve home value. But if your roof has only a small issue, get it repaired rather than replaced outright. If it is still in good condition, neither repair nor replacement will improve home value.
A new roof doesn’t always increase home value. General housing market conditions influence the value of all home renovations. Remodeling’s 2019 report says a new roof adds the most value in the New England region, at 77 percent return. While in the East North Central region, a new roof adds the least home value, at 65 percent return on investment. Consult your roofing and gutter contractor Valley Vista Construction, Inc. We can discuss how roofs perform in your neighborhood.
Choosing the Right New Shingles
A lot depends on buyer desires when selling your home. Your new roof should match your neighborhood. It’s useless to have designer shingles if your neighbors have less expensive shingles. Traditional shingles likewise won’t improve home value if everyone else has designer shingles.
