Whether you’re selling your home or thinking of doing so in the near future, you always have to put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. If you were buying a new home, would you want a house without central AC? Many sellers are never too sure if they should replace their existing, older AC unit or add central AC. The answer is simple: Do whichever will increase the value of your home the most.
First things first, if your AC unit is on the older side, replacing it with a central AC system is always the best choice. Older AC units cost a lot of money to repair and if replacing it is an option, spend the extra money for the central AC system. If your home has a radiator heating system that is maintained regularly, it can be efficient at heating your home. So there isn’t a need to worry about your heating.
Putting your home on the market with a central cooling system will attract a larger amount of potential buyers. Some potential buyers won’t even consider looking at a home if it does not have central AC. Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes again. You just spent a fortune on a new house. Do you really want to spend more money by adding a central cooling system after the fact? Most buyers would rather pay more included in the price of the house to avoid a separate expense and have to live with the installation.
The Final Verdict: A central AC system will increase the value of your home.
While you do incur the expense of adding the central system in, you will attract more potential buyers with higher offers than if you did not. More potential buyers also means that there will be a wider variety of offers for your home. This could help you sell your home sooner.
