Want to boost your chances of getting top dollar when you sell your home? You might want to install central air conditioning. A recent survey by the National Association of Realtors revealed that central air conditioning was the most important feature to home buyers out of 33 home features listed in the survey. To be specific, 65% of buyers considered this feature very important, the survey results showed.
Central air conditioning was considered significantly more important to home buyers than other in-demand features, such as walk-in closets in the master bedroom, having a home that was cable/satellite/Internet ready, or even having an en-suite master bathroom! Even more telling: 69% of home buyers who had purchased homes with no central AC reported that they were willing to spend $2,520 more for a home with central air, according to the survey results.

Suffice to say, having a central air conditioning system installed in your home yields more than just short-term comfort — it can also lead to long-term gain! Consider the fact that homes with central air are relatively scarce in the Seattle area due to our mild summers, and it’s easy to see how you are providing a rare feature to potential buyers.
So if you’re thinking of remodeling or making some upgrades to your home that will boost its resale value, consider having central air installed. You’ll ensure your home is hot on the market and cool during the summer.
