Home sales are fairly low this time of year, owing the winter, the busy period of the holidays and the market in general. If you’re looking to sell your Banning, CA home, you’re likely eyeing April or May at the earliest as the right time to put it on the market. But preparations need to be made, and if your HVAC system isn’t what you need it to be, now is the perfect time to upgrade or replace it. That way, you have an added feature of the home to help market it, and depending on the state of your system, have eliminated possible drawbacks as well.
Inspection Is Necessary
Every home sale contingent upon an inspection and that is the worst time to discover a problem with the heating and air. Instead, schedule a maintenance inspection from a trained professional now. Not only can he or she spot the signs of serious trouble – allowing you to arrange for repairs – but the session will improve the system’s efficiency, helping it perform at its best and keep potential buyers comfortable when they look the place over.
Upgrades or Something More
Depending on the state of your HVAC and your overall budget, you should think about adding upgrades to the system or even replacing it if it’s old enough. Replacement is a big step, but it may be necessary if your existing system has too many problems to make it an attractive selling point. A new system, on the other hand, can boost the asking price up a bit in most cases. Even if the HVAC is in fine shape, consider looking into upgrades like a new smart thermostat and zone control systems, which will enhance the home’s value.
