I recently negotiated a new roof for my buyers with a for sale by owner. Just waiting to make sure the appraisal came back to value, and that nothing else was called before having the Seller sign the contract with the roofing company. Although I'm not representing the seller, I do want this to be a seamless transaction and go forward with little to no angst.
Once I get the go ahead from the lender, have the signed roofing contract from the seller and, weather permitting, we will have a new 30 year roof installed. Once this is done, I will start removing contingencies as we go along and hope to close by our scheduled date of January 20, 2012.
I really see no problems other than getting the weather to cooperate. Here's to good weather!!
