Can I negotiate a new roof when buying a home?

You may have found the perfect home with a big drawback: The roof is no longer brand new. A roof should be replaced every 20- 25 years typically. Although, it may need to be replaced even earlier if problems occur. The average roof replacement cost ranges from about $5,000-$11,000. This is a large amount of money to be spending when you are buying a new home. A seller is prepared to give their property to the highest bidder and won’t think much about the life of the home structures, like a roof. You being the buyer, should have this in mind, and may be able to have that as an advantage.
