Lack of funds to pay for a new heating system? If there is no heating system has the seller winterized the home so the pipes don't burst? Why don't you ask the seller why he won't install a new heating system -
QUESTION for REAL ESTATE AGENTS/BROKERS: My buyers like a house but the heating system doesn't work. We're in the Boston area, and the temp inside was about 40 degrees. Seller (also the agent) refuses and has no intention of installing a heating system. We don't want to make an offer because we worry there is a good enough chance pipes will burst by closing (not to mention the cost of installing a heating system). Poor house :( Is the seller nuts or am I missing something? What would possess someone to NOT have a working heating system in a house during New England winter? Any suggestions?
