One of the five housing predictions of Realtor® magazine for 2015 includes the comeback of first-time homebuyers after being largely kept out of the market during the housing crisis. As employment opportunities increase this year, realtor.com® chief economist Jonathan Smoke predicts millennials will be empowered and ready to buy properties. Additionally, if access to credit becomes easier, the real estate industry will see many young buyers back in the market.
If you’re planning to sell your home, 2015 looks like a great time to do it. Apart from an increase in the number of buyers, prices are also expected to rise, which is great news for home sellers. Of course, this means many property owners will be putting their houses on the market too. Can your property compete?
At Lone-Star Roof Systems, we want to help you achieve your real estate goals. If you want to put your property ahead of the competition, it’s best to do some home improvement. One of the things we recommend is new residential roofing in Houston. Here are some reasons you should consider replacing your roof.
In our West South Central region, a midrange roof replacement offers an 82% ROI, according to Remodeling magazine’s “2015 Cost Vs. Value” report. If you’re planning an upscale roof replacement, you can recover about 69% of your costs. As the roof is an important part of any property, many buyers won’t mind spending more for a house with a new roof. For many of them, getting a new roof means significant savings down the road – and they’re absolutely right!
Enhanced Curb Appeal
In real estate, first impressions are really important. You need to be able to get the attention and interest of buyers before they even step onto your property. A new roof can help you do that as it makes up a huge portion of your home’s appearance.
Before putting your property up for sale, make sure it can compete against other houses on the market. Schedule an appointment with Lone-Star Roof Systems to learn how. With years of experience in the industry, we understand how carefully chosen improvements can increase your home’s chances of getting sold immediately. Depending on the style of your home and your preferences, you may choose from some of the best products we offer, such as asphalt shingles, slate, wood, metal and tile roofing in Houston.
