I'm not sure what a newer roof or HVAC is?  I can only assume that they were new when installed, unless they installed a used roof and HVAC system!

Annette Lawrence I have seen this - not used it as such.

It's good to have such additional information - specially for the homes which are built many many years ago.

Depending on the year of the home...but any home that has had major repairs or replacements can make a big difference on the sale ability of the home

That is goofy, Annette.  Those items are no longer new or newer.  Ridiculous!

Hi Annette --- whenever a date is associated with an upgrade, addition or repair -- the source of that information should be included.   Roof replaced with composition shingles, installed in 2014 according to sellers.  Hopefully there is paperwork to back up such a statement.

David Barr Age is not a defect but when he sand has trickled through the bottle, it simply is not newer either. Tutelage in advertising copy is in order. I can image that agent was so mentally fatuguied that their fingers moved without notion from the mind.

Roy Kelley that close to my point....it is deceptive.

@Vern Eaton They do ask for this, but I think buyers expect accurate information. The issue is not the date of installation, but the inclusing of the word NEWER.

@Kevin J. May  those were the days my friend.... and they are coming again.

"Newer" should be reserved for installations that occurred within the previous few months or sooner.

Agents need to be careful with their hype to avoid liability issues.
