My house was getting pretty old, and my wife and I thought it would be a good time to sell.
We were getting older, and could no longer do the upkeep that needed done.
After talking to a realtor, she told us we needed to do some repairs if we wanted to get a good price for the house. I called a general contracting company and asked for an assessment of the work that needed done. They gave me a time and date for the assessment and we called the realtor. She said she would be there when the contractor showed up. I couldn’t believe the questions they were asking. The contractor asked about the age of the roof. He wanted to know how old the house was, and whether we had ever replaced the siding. By the time hmay note was done, I was sure it was going to cost more to make the repairs than what we could get for the house. He told us we needed our roofing and siding replaced. He said he could do the roofing and the siding replacement, but it was going to take several months before he could get it started. I asked about a cost for the roofing and siding replacement, and he gave us a quick estimate. I was sure there was no way we were going to sell this year, but I was sure that once we had the roofing and siding replaced, it wouldn’t take long. If the roofing and siding replacement didn’t get done this year, we may not sell at all, but the house will be in better condition.
