Increasing Your Home’s Value Through Plumbing
Selling a home can be an exciting yet stressful time in a family’s life. From working with your agent, to packing and deep cleaning, you’re likely feeling overwhelmed and like there is no end in sight. However, all of it will be worth it in the end when you’re able to score a top-dollar sale on your home.
Before you can cash the check, though, there is a lot of work to be done! Epic Plumbing is here to give you advice on plumbing upgrades that can help earn you that much more on your home’s sale.
Replace Your Appliances
When potential buyers are walking around your home, they likely will not respond well to the idea of having to replace a 20 year old dishwasher or a broken garbage disposal.
It may come as a surprise, but there are some buyers who would pass on your home simply because of it’s outdated appliances!
Consider replacing any appliances you can that are past their prime, or working a little slower than they ought to be. From dishwashers to water heaters, your potential buyer is certain to remember the nice, shiny, new items that could soon be theirs.
Old homes typically have outdated pipes that could be a hard sell for your realtor. Old pipes can cause recurring leaks and clogs and, if they are galvanized, could corrode and have a negative effect on your water. Call a plumber out to your home to inspect for leaks, and assess the state of your pipes.
These are all things that your appraiser will take into consideration, meaning a repipe could add serious value to your home. After all, if a buyer notices low water pressure during a walk-through, they’re likely to be disappointed and remember that detail.
Selling a house is all about the minor details! If you’re not ready to commit to the larger projects like re-piping or installing a new washer and dryer, take a look at the fixtures in your home. A new, modern toilet will turn heads, and a sleek and on-trend kitchen faucet will elevate the room.
Another smaller project that could check off a box for your buyer is installing a garbage disposal. These tools are highly sought after as they make our lives a little bit easier.
Now more than ever, potential home buyers are looking for ways to save energy, money, and the planet. This is important to keep in mind while making your upgrades! Some eco-friendly upgrades you could make include:
- Low-flow faucets and showerheads
- Tankless water heaters
- Low-flow toilets
- Energy-efficient washers and dryers
While these upgrades may present a big price-tag at the time of installation, remember that they’re going to help sell the home at a higher price. The kitchen and bathrooms can often make or break a sale!
