Before selling a home, most homeowners take stock of their property and think of ways to improve their home’s value. Believe it or not, your roof can play a significant role in your home’s overall marketability.

First of all, missing shingles on a roof are simply a bad look. They indicate that you don’t take much pride in your home and lead sellers to wonder what else is awry inside.

Second, potential buyers don’t want to see unique features when it comes to the roof. Roofing is a reasonably standardized trade, and buyers feel better about purchasing a home with standard roofing material. Choosing an odd material means you will limit the number of interested buyers.

Third, modern roof lines attract buyers because they are sharp and prove that your roof has been updated within the last decade. It is easy to update your roof to encourage buyers to take a second look.

Finally, the age of your roof will impact the resale value of your home. Most traditional shingle roofs last about two decades, so if your roof is close to that age, buyers will likely deduct some or all of the cost of replacing the roof from their offer.

Proactively replacing your roof before listing your home can help your home sell faster. It can help remove doubt from a buyer’s mind about the home’s condition, make your home more appealing to buyers, and reduce negotiation.
