Again Roof - Sell Your Home

Our real estate agents know the roof is one of the most important parts of any home. Not only does the roof protect your well-being and comfort, but it also safeguards the entire structure.

When there are problems with the roof, it can create a domino effect that leaves the rest of the building vulnerable. Ultimately, a damaged roof can even lead to cracks in the foundation.

In a world of increasingly wild weather, it's never been more essential to have a durable roof. And with New England winters being what they are, a major leak is the last thing anyone wants.

So, when it's time to sell your home, it's vital to ask the question: Should you repair the roof?

Roof repair is something many sellers want to avoid. Although it can raise the sale price of your home, you won't usually recover your entire investment. However, there are some situations where getting roof repair done early on will help you out in the long run.

Sell Your Home or Remodel?

Remodel or Relocate. Which is Right for You?

At a certain point, almost every homeowner faces a choice. Maybe your family has grown, your work-from-home business has blown up, or your house simply doesn't have space for the lifestyle you want. Whatever the reason, your current home no longer meets your needs, so it's time to decide whether you should remodel or relocate. Our real estate agents are here to help with that choice. 

  1. List Your Home Improvement Goals
    It's important to establish exactly why your home no longer meets your needs, and determine what improvements you would have to make. Make a list of all the updates, add-ons and upgrades you want, whether it's extra bedrooms and bathrooms, a remodeled kitchen, more storage space, or any other features you need your home to have. Eventually, this list will be useful to determine the cost of making the necessary changes.

Final Walk-through Checklist for Home Buyers

When you're buying a home, your final walk-through is an exciting moment. This is the crowning moment after months of research and negotiations to go through the property and confirm everything is in the condition you expect. Our real estate agents will go through the home step-by-step with you to ensure the following items on this checklist are accounted for. 

Structural Elements

  • Roof condition - Make sure the roof, rafters, and shingles are in good condition and that there are no "soft spots" or signs of water damage, wood rot, or mold.
  • Siding - Inspect siding for signs of damage, missing planks, mold, etc. 
  • Brickwork/Sidewalks - Look for damage including missing bricks, cracks in masonry, widening joints, crumbling mortar. 
  • Windows/Skylights - Examine windows, skylights, and frames for cracks, drafts, torn screens, and other damage. You will also want to ensure that all windows and skylights open/close correctly and that there are no signs of water damage.
