It’s a decision that every Baltimore homeowner eventually has to make. They pull up to their house and for the hundredth time said to themselves, “I should get a new roof.” At this point you’ve pushed it off for too long. If it’s a pitched roof then the asphalt shingles have started to curl, you see soot marks, and a few shingles are missing. If it’s a flat roof then you can see that the wrapping over the edge is starting to crack. Maybe it’s time to sell your house fast before the issue gets out of hand?
Every time a rainstorm comes through Baltimore you cross your fingers and hope that today’s not the day that you get a leak. Over and over you promise yourself that you’re going to get the issue addressed, but that day never comes. Finally. you worst nightmare happens. You start to see a small wet spot start to form on the bedroom ceiling. Replacing the roof just went from a maintenance item to an emergency. “Darn,” you tell yourself, “I was thinking of selling this house anyways.”
You could go out a get a bunch of estimates, but perhaps a new roof isn’t worth your investment. You planned to sell the house anyways but are worried it won’t sell without a new roof. That would be very true if you were going to sell with a real estate agent, but there are other options available.
What does a new roof cost?
New roofs are expensive, dangerous, and require installation by a professional. These professionals could end up charging you $5,000 or more! This price gets even higher if they need to remove the existing roof and replace plywood. This repair must be paid for and few of us have that kind of money just lying around. Plus, why would you want to waste that much money on a new roof if you were just going to sell it anyways?
Why should you sell to us?
Instead of spending thousands on a new roof, it’s better to sell your house in Baltimore to Dependable Homebuyers. We buy houses in “as is” condition with no inspections. You won’t have to make any repairs and you can keep that money in your pocket.
If you were to approach a real estate agency they’d require that you complete all of the repairs out of pocket before they’d be willing to list your property. In fact, they’ll probably pressure you to do things like getting the house painted and updating the appliances. I don’t know about you, but most of us don’t have the kind of money where we can spend thousands of dollars fixing up a house just to wait for it to eventually sell on the market. New roofs are one of the most expensive repairs a homeowner can make, and having to wait to get your money back is insult to injury.
Don’t wait for your money!
It’s your money and you shouldn’t have to wait months and months for your house in Baltimore to eventually sell. Think of how stressful it will be when you’re living paycheck to paycheck because all of your money is wrapped up in your property. If you were to sell to Dependable Homebuyers then you would never have to put out the money for repairs and you would have the house sold with the proceeds in your bank account before the end of the month!
This is a huge benefit! Whether you’re looking to buy another house, pay down some debt, or got on a much needed vacation, when you sell fast to Dependable Homebuyers you’re able to save time and get onto the good parts of life.
