So, you’re thinking about selling your home… Well, before you put your house on the market, there are many important investments you can (and should!) make that will earn you more value when you list.
One of those things is repairing or replacing your HVAC unit. According to the National Association of REALTORS® Research Group’s Remodeling Impact Report, HVAC replacement was one of the highest-ranked interior projects in terms of appeal to buyers. REALTORS® also ranked projects in terms of the expected value at resale, and again, HVAC replacement topped the list. And when REALTORS® estimated the dollar value a project would add to a home at resale, HVAC replacement came in at 85 percent.
To back that up, even more, The National Association of REALTORS® reported that HVAC replacements have a higher average return on investment than most projects—yielding a return of up to 71%. Additionally, the age of your unit goes into the MLS datasheet, and you can prominently feature that your system is new(er) to make it stand out from the rest. Some buyers won’t even look at your listing if they see an old HVAC unit! (P.S. energy-efficient units are very attractive to buyers as well as they help them save money in the long run!)
So, in a nutshell, fixing or replacing your HVAC unit can have a great effect on the sale of your home. It’s something that you should absolutely prioritize if you’re putting your house on the market… and that’s where we come in!
