I'm looking for a home in your area and I can tell you that as a buyer, I expect to have a roof that does not need to be replaced. If my contractor tells me it needs to be replaced, then I will make a lower offer based on 1) Replacing the roof and giving myself a margin of error, in case even more expensive and extensive problems are discovered once the old roof has been removed; 2) Other unknowns; i.e., a roof that needs to be replaced is a red flag that the house may have other problems that even an experienced contractor will not be able to detect.
Buyers will often ask: "How old is the roof?" Replacing the roof depends on many variables... including how soon does it need replacement? How desirable is the property overall? Do you have the funds to replace the roof? The market in Hudson is quite active, and now is a very good time to list. I would suggest interviewing several realtors, and asking their opinion.
