The heat of summer is making an extended stay this year and if you are a seller without central air conditioning you are at a distinct disadvantage. Central air conditioning, once perceived as an expensive home amenity, has risen to the top of “must have” features on a buyer’s wish list.
In a recent Inquirer article by Al Heavens, with contributions by myself, entitled No Air? That Puts A Chill On Sales, Al discusses the importance of central air conditioning when marketing your home.
The lack of central air in starter homes is an exception but as the price range of a home increases it is an expectation, and the lack of central air can be a deal breaker for many buyers.
Using data from the Multiple Listing Service I found that 77% of homes that sold in Wallingford and Nether Providence Township during 2014 had central air. The questions is do you want to be among the 33% that lack that feature?
