You may be shocked to learn that, according to Better Homes and Gardens
, approximately 40 percent of a home’s curb appeal comes from the look and condition of the roof. If your roof is visibly damaged or otherwise in bad shape, it’s going to be difficult to get people to bid on your home. It’s important to consider that most home buyers have a strict budget, and having to make major repairs or even replacements immediately after buying a home is almost never on their agenda. By replacing your roof before you sell, you’ll likely be able to recoup the cost from the extra money buyers are willing to pay for a structurally sound home.
