If furnace and water heater are newer than the 60s, that will be good. The old ones can last forever, but newer ones are so much more energy efficient. Are the windows and roof newer as well? Original windows are probably letting out a lot of heat if they weren't replaced in the remodel.

Good luck! Is this your first house?
wow really? i remember your basement looking freaking awesome. complete with that 100in tv!
