Ok, well if you spend now 8800 $ you will not get those back in the sale price, by telling the buyer the A/C is brand new, they will say or think yeah great....
If its old they will probably find out during the inspection, the inspector will tell them how old it is
and that they should expect at one point to have it replaced --- and depending on the experience of
buying homes of the buyers they will understand that and take it into consideration.... They may ask
during the inspection period for money to replace the A/C as when they made the offer they could not
be aware of the age of the A/C so, then you negotiate that but at that point you can grant them some credit but you do not have to give them that full amount....so it may or may not become an issue during the A/I i.e. inspection period, based on the inspection report, or not....
What I would though strongly recommend to you, if you did not do it all along, have an HVAC company come in and have your furnace and A/C cleaned, and checked, cover the A/C over the winter so it stays nice and clean, and then you can say that both furnace and A/C have been recently serviced and cleaned.... that is good sign for the Buyers.....
Furthermore if I were your Listing agent I would strongly recommend to you to get a home warranty
not sure what it would cost you for your home, but let's say it is 450 or 500 $ that warranty will
be active for you the Seller during the entire listing period and then will transfer to the buyer with a
one year coverage for the buyer and your Realtor can put that into the MLS listing sheet for the
Buyers and their agent to see.... It is a good thing and lots cheaper than putting in a brand new
Hope this helps, work with a good local Realtor (If you need a recommendation get back to me)
so that you do all the right things from the start and also price your home competitively for your
Good Luck to you
Sincerely yours & a Great Day to YOU
