Are you thinking of listing your home for sale?

Are you thinking of putting your home on the market? The current real estate market in our area has been pretty competitive, with most homes are selling very quickly after receiving multiple offers. When people think about putting their house up for sale, the first things that come to mind are improving curb appeal, de-cluttering the house and maybe some light updating or painting. Most do not think about paying a little attention to the roof until after they are in a contract and have had some areas of concern pointed out in a home inspection report.

On occasion, we receive frantic phone calls from real estate agents and mortgage officers asking us to inspect a roof or make roof repair Dallas, because their client is in an option period or under contract and is potentially at risk of losing the sale.  While we always try our best to accommodate these types of last minute requests, we recommend that real estate agents have their clients obtain free roof inspections before listing the home for sale. Roof inspections are free and are a good way to determine up front if there are any issues or repairs that should be made before listing.

Outback Roofing, a roofing company Dallas, will perform a free roof inspection (within a reasonable travel distance) and will provide the seller, buyer or agent with an indepth report covering the condition of the roof and roof elements as well as any proposed repairs or recommended general maintenance. In some circumstances, if a full roof replacement is deemed necessary where no insurance claim is warranted, we may be able to work with the sellers and obtain payment from proceeds at closing from the title company to limit their out of pocket expense.

If you are a real estate agent in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex and would like more information on how Outback Roofing, a roofing contractor Dallas, can help you with your listings, please contact us at 972-930-9990.
