My wife and I are trying to sell our house.
We want to move out west and start a small vegetable farm that sells organic fruits, vegetables, and crafts.
It has been a dream of ours since we met in college. The house has been on the market for 6 months and we haven’t had a lot of people interested in giving us an offer. I think we have the house priced well, but some of the amenities like the HVAC , plumbing, and bathroom are in need of updates. I think the biggest reason we can’t sell the house is due to the age of the HVAC unit. It’s over 10 years old and a lot of people don’t want to worry about the HVAC equipment. I can understand, because the HVAC equipment can be very expensive to replace. After spending $200,000 to buy a house, I wouldn’t want to worry about the HVAC equipment either. I told my wife that we should buy a brand-new HVAC unit and install the equipment on our own. She thinks it’s a bad idea. She believes that the new owner will want to install their own heating and cooling equipment. I don’t know which one of us is correct, but I know we haven’t gotten any offers on the house. I wonder if anyone would be interested if we installed a brand new heat pump, ductwork and an air conditioner? Maybe it’s time to call an expert and have them give us an estimate on the total cost for the complete upgrade package.
