Agents and their clients have to consider a variety of factors when determining if it is worth it to replace a roof before going to market. Due to harsh winds from tropical storms and hurricanes, Florida roofs generally experience more damage than average. A younger, undamaged roof isn’t only desirable for its remaining lifespan, but also for its insurability. If a home’s roof is between 12-30 years old it’s common to replace the roof before selling—which is exactly what Coldwell Banker agent, Viliane Bazile, and her sellers decided to do!
As always, we deferred all payment until closing, so the seller didn’t pay a dime upfront. With a fresh new roof, the home was listed for $60k more than its as-is value.
