As others have asked, what is the condition of the roof now? Are shingles missing or curling? You must utilize the experience of a good realtor to determine what needs to be done to make your home more marketable, but also keep in mind that if the roof is in obvious disrepair, an appraiser may value your home subject to repairs. If that happened, you would need to have the roof repaired in order to allow the buyer to close on their mortgage. If they were paying cash, you would have no worries.
If you are need of mortgage pre-qualification for your next home, please call me at any time.

If you do NOT replace the roof, the potential buyers will deduct the amount they "think" it will cost to replace from their offer price. A home in good condition and well staged will sell faster and for more money.
Legally, unless the roof is leaking, you are not required to do anything at all. How old is the roof and is it showing its age.
I love my sellers to do their own Pre-Home Inspection (certainly worth the money) so they can pick and choose which items to pay attention to so they will not show up in the buyer's report.
Homeowners are often very surprised at what they don't know about their own homes.
