    Default My house (Listing)

    Well, I have listed my house with by the owner.com, everything is ready. I have just not hit the activation button yet. I will do so on Sunday/Monday.

    I do have a question,
    If you know your roof needs to be done in say a year or so. Would you
    A) do the roof, and ask for more when selling.
    B) don't do the roof, and leave the buyers room for negotiation? If they have a problem with the roof.

    I have had a few roofing places come and give us an estimate. So I can always show them to the buyer right?


    Here is the link to my listing

    That's a hard one. I think it would depend on the buyer. I would personally rather have the roof done for me but if someone is handy they may prefer to do it themselves and save some money. You could always list without doing it but if someone menitons it say you would be willing to do it for them before selling.

    I think if you are willing to drop the asking price by the cost of the roofing job, then that would be attractive to buyers. But in a sense, you're then paying for the roofing in any case, right? Is it too much for you to do it beforehand? Imagine how much of a selling point it would be if there's a New Roof!!?

    I think it looks great! I don't think you'll have a problem selling it.
