Spring is coming. With the change of the season, many home buyers are flocking to the housing market looking for their dream house. If you are thinking of selling your home, now would be a good time to contact a roofing Houston contractor to check your roof and do the necessary repairs or replacement. Here are three very good reasons to do this:
- Spring is the best time to sell a home. Home buyers usually start their search for a new house in spring. Getting your roof fixed and your home ready by the time spring’s home buying fever hits means that your home gets a good chance of being considered by the first wave of home buyers. A fixed or new roof contributes greatly to a home’s curb appeal and value. Combined with the staging opportunities spring offers, your home has excellent chances of getting great offers.
- Houston is becoming more culturally and ethnically diverse. A recently released study by Rice University indicated that the Houston region is now the most ethnically diverse metropolitan area in the country – even more so than the so-called cultural melting pot of New York City. What does this mean for us as homeowners?
- This means more prospective home buyers. Cultural diversity is a huge draw for many people so aside from local home buyers, your home may also be considered by many buyers from out-of-state.
- Since many of these buyers start their search online, you need to be as detailed as possible in describing your home. You get bonus points if your home passed local housing inspections, which it can only do if it has a fixed roof in good condition.
- Home buyers are more confident. The Houston Association of Realtors reported that home sales were up by 9.2% last January compared to its 2011 rating. The housing market is able to sustain its revival momentum and has reached its 8th consecutive month of steadily increasing sales. Home prices are also increasing which in turn, increases home buyers’ confidence that buying a home is a great investment at this time. With a new roof, you increase your home’s chances of getting offers that are on par with your asking price.
