Hello BP Community!
Currently on my 2nd flip as a college student and just went through the home inspection. There is a boiler in the basement that is about 8 years old and working pretty well. The radiator around the homes are also good. While I intend to get the top dollar for this flip and I have accounted adding the HVAC to the scope of work, would you recommend to keep the boiler or install a new HVAC unit?
I think it depends on the class of buyer you are flipping for. If for example this is a more affordable, starter home for a first time homebuyer I’d say it’s probably best to keep the current system. I don’t think a new heating system would get as much of a return here vs say a high end luxury home where top of the line new systems are the standard.
Just my two cents. If the current system works fine then I’m sure whichever decision you make you’ll do well!
I agree with @Steven Rubino . It does depend on the price point of your home. I would also recommend looking at the heating/cooling solution of the flip comps in the area. If I'm understanding correctly, the home currently does not have a central air system. That may not be an issue, but could result in a lower sale price than the comps if they all have A/C.
