As we continue on our 10 week series on what Prescott Real Estate Buyers are looking for, let’s move to something a little more over our head.
In addition to remodeling your kitchen or bath to increase the value of your home, according the REALTOR MAGAZINE® a new roof has the greatest remodeling value. With Arizona’s blistering temperatures and intense sun a roof not only protects you from the heat and keeps you cool, according to a report from the National Associated of REALTORS® and National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), adding new roofing can also improve your enjoyment of your home. My question is, if installing a new roof can bring you joy, can you imagine how quickly it would attract a buyer?
Advantages of different roofing materials
Tile Roof – Tile roofing comes in a variety of colors making it easy to coordinate with your homes exterior and there are many profiles and styles to choose from. In addition they offer long term durability, curb appeal and they are environmentally friendly.
Metal Roof – A Metal Roof of course offers the benefit of longevity. Depending on the material used Metal Roofs can have a life expectancy of 40 to 70 years. Not only are they long lasting, they can also add curb appeal to your home.
Cool Roof – A cool roof is designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than standard roofing. Can you imagine not only reducing energy bills but also your carbon footprint. Cool Roof’s reduce power plant emissions which include carbon monoxide and nitrous oxides. Click here to read more about Cool Roofs at Energy.gov
As is with any substantial upgrade to your home, the benefits of a new roof outweighs the cost. Far beyond the expense is energy cost savings, increased home value but most importantly instant appeal to potential buyers!
