Buying 'fixer upper'-- need new water softener

OK, I have a million things in the air with this house right now. Today, there was a one day sale on Pelican systems on homedepot.com... Decided to pass on the salt free system, but I am still trying to decide on renting a salt system from my local dealer ($25/month) or buying the GE 40k grain softener for $450 from Home Depot (as well).

I'm also kicking around buying a whole house filter, but its hard finding any kind of reviews for it... The GE one at homedepot is $50. Aquasana has a 10 year one for $700... Big price difference. Any tips?

So you still have not even bought this house yet?
Have you even had the water tested to see what kind of treatment is needed?
I'm confused, a softener and a whole house filter would be dealing with two totally different issues.

We are replacing an older (ancient) softener

This town has hard water, so we definitely know we need that

What is the recommended testing to determine filter need? The current fridge doesn't have water dispenser or filter-- I'd like filtered water for ice and drinking, but I'd rather not go the Brita route
