How to Sell a House With a Bad Roof Without a Loss

Sell Home Bad RoofJust because your home has a bad roof is no reason not to put it on the market in Sacramento right now, because this Sacramento real estate agent can sell your house with a bad roof without a loss to you. Believe it. I can get a brand new roof installed for you. No fuss, no muss, no upfront cost. Overcoming challenges and working around issues is one of my specialties. You don’t have to pay for this roof out of your pocket, either. There is no credit inquiry. You can have bad credit or no credit.

How does this miraculous thing happen? It happens because I have established relationships with roofing companies who know that when I list a home for sale, that house will sell. These roofing owners have confidence in me and my abilities to sell homes in Sacramento, not to mention, my track record speaks volumes. I don’t sell one house every 4 months like most agents — I close an escrow on average every 4 days.

The cost for your brand new roof will be paid from the proceeds of sale at closing. The roofing companies will wait to get paid. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, either. You’re not paying for the zero interest, and you’re not even signing an agreement. The bidding process is competitive. You are free to discuss costs and get other bids yourself as well.

It doesn’t get any better than this. It’s just one out of many services I offer my sellers that other real estate agents probably haven’t even thought about. If you have a bad roof, I’ll take care of it.

I just closed on a home in Carmichael a few days ago that had a bad roof. It was a trust sale, and the executor had never lived in the home. The roof was at its end of life, and there was quite a bit of dry-rot that I could view from the ground. The seller did not want to put any extra work into the home and preferred to sell AS IS. However, an AS IS sale would cost him a lot MORE than the cost to replace the roof. It actually saved him a lot of money to replace the roof during the sales process. Buyers don’t know how much a roof costs. Buyers might want to ding the seller’s price by $40,000 to $50,000 sometimes, when it costs less than $10,000 to replace an average roof.

Plus, now we could market the home in Carmichael as having a brand new roof! The roof over a buyer’s head is very important. A roof over your head is a reason to buy a home. If the roof is in excellent condition, it can protect everything else in the home. Not the very least of which, for a seller, a new roof protects the seller’s bottom-line profit. If your home was built prior to 1990, you probably need a new roof. Call Elizabeth Weintraub at 916 233 6759 for help in selling your house, bad roof or not.
