No one goes looking for houses to buy in the dead of winter here in Boston, MA. It’s just too cold. Purchasing a home is a task for the spring, and if you’re looking at putting your house on the market, you’re likely looking at doing so in May or June. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be preparing for the sale now, particularly when it comes to lingering issues in key parts of your household like the heating and air conditioning system. The more work you can do now, the more assets your home will have when you put it on the market in a few months.
Start with Maintenance
Regardless of the state of your HVAC system, you should always schedule a maintenance session well in advance of the house going up for sale. That lets you get in front of any potential repair issues — things that could turn buyers away — and allows you to get the issue fixed in a timely fashion.
Upgrades Make Everything Better
Depending on your budget, you should look into upgrading your system, starting with the thermostat. A new smart thermostat replacing an old digital one can make a huge difference for very little cost. The same holds true for things like humidifiers and dehumidifiers, and zone control systems that provide precise control over your heating and air.
Do You Need a Replacement?
Ideally, your existing system works fine and shows no issues that might give a buyer pause. But if you have an old system that evinces a lot of problems, you might want to think about replacing it with a new one. That provides your home with a huge selling point, and likely allows you to up the asking price by a fair amount as well.
