How important is having a good roof, when selling your home?


As local Treasure Coast Realtors, we understand the importance of having your property sell for top dollar. After all that is why most people want to sell, to begin with. But what does it take to get this type of money for your home? Does it really matter if the roof on your property is new?

Or will buyers simply understand that they may have to repair it themselves?


Well first of all if you're looking to sell your property for top dollar on the Treasure Coast you had better have it checked out well. Buyers in this market often time hire inspection companies that will inform them of any issues that will cost them money.


Plus if the roof is badly worn, or currently leaking many buyers will be afraid of the work needed to make it new again. In addition, most buyers are using banks to finance their purchases. These banks won't typically loan money on a property in need of expensive repairs. 

There are some wonderful local roofing companies like ACI Century Inc, in Stuart FL and specializes in roof repairs and replacements. They will even give you a free estimate long before the home is even on the market. This will give you a chance to understand the costs and work needed to make the roof beautiful and functioning properly.


Take it from us, the last thing you want is for your deal to fall apart because of an issue with the roof you can easily fix.
