The maintenace of the gutter/downspout system is something I always include in my home maintenace list for my first time home buyers.
Century 21 HomeStar
I'm finding that buyers tend to focus on what is missing rather than what is there - which can be frustrating indeed for sellers that have made efforts to improve their home in preparation for sale. But the fact is this, a properly prepared home that is priced to reflect current market conditions has the best chance of selling at the best possible price.
If you need the gutters to manage the water runoff from your roof, get them.
Unwavering Commitment to Service
I'm looking at doing a few things to add to the longevity of the home, gutters, adding better ventilation to the roof mostly.
Thanks for your answers!
A home in Michigan is expected to have gutters, windows, roof, etc... and while NEW gutters might be worth a little more than old beat-up (but functioning) gutters... they are expected on a home so they don't really add value. While missing gutters certainly deduct from a home's value.
Missing gutters can lead to water infiltration which causes foundation issues.
The lack of proper gutters and down spouts in some homes can allow rain water to accumulate around the foundation and eventually seep into the basement.

I've found that most water issues in basements are caused by poor drainage of rain runoff on the exterior of homes. The lack of gutters would certainly fall under this, and if there is a home inspection done, it would probably come up as a recommendation to have gutters installed.
