Are you considering putting your home on the market? If so, to get the most money for your home you’ll probably need to make some repair and updates. Items like painting, landscaping, and fixing minor problems have their place but they may only mask larger problems presents. These problems will be found if any serious buyer pulls out their secret weapon.
The Home Inspector.
Home inspectors look diligently for any signs of problems that may be ordinarily hidden. In fact, if a home inspector suspects something like inadequate cooling, he may add in his report a recommendation for a professional evaluation by a certified HVAC tech.
Checking Your HVAC
Even if you are thinking of saving money by doing a HVAC repair yourself, it is still a good idea to hire a HVAC specialist to give you an evaluation before you begin the work. Having a professional set of eyes to look over the project can help you to avoid pitfalls and poor planning. Additionally, you may discover that some of the work required is above your knowledge base or not worth the amount of time to invest in such an endeavor. Advanced planning and a documented evaluation from a professional can give you the advantage during a negotiation.
Maintaining For the Future
If you are going to sell in the near or even think it may be a possibility in years to come, you can add to the attractiveness of your sale by keeping records of regular maintenance. This helps to counter suspected depreciation costs of major systems like HVAC. It is well-known that well maintained HVAC systems can function properly even after 20 or 30 years of use. The only issue may be efficiency, which is usually not a covered during a sale.
