Home sales usually take place in the spring, and if you’re thinking about putting your home on the market, it’s usually best to do so in May or June. No one wants to come out to look at houses when the weather in Dover, DE is cold and drizzling, and the new life of spring makes the perfect atmosphere to show your home off to potential buyers.
But getting your home ready for sale involves a certain amount of work, and now is a very good time to start. Among the aspects of your home to consider is your HVAC system, which plays a key role in household comfort and which smart buyers will take a very close look at when evaluating your home. A little investment in your system will go a long way in the spring. Here’s a quick list of tips to help get your heating and air conditioning systems ready for a home sale.
- Get it serviced. A maintenance session on your home system can help spot any lingering problems, allowing you to correct them before showing the home.
- Upgrade the thermostat. A new smart thermostat costs very little, but adds a great deal in terms of the convenience and utility of your system.
- Replace an older system. If your HVAC system’s warranty has expired, it could be a sticking point when it comes to the final price. Getting a new system installed will give you another strong selling point and can pay dividends when the final sale price is reached.
- Consider improvements to the system. If you don’t have room in your budget for a replacement HVAC system and it’s working fine, look into things like heat recovery ventilators or oil-to-gas conversion systems, which will enhance the system’s value to potential buyers.
