Selling your home is a big undertaking, but it will provide you with plenty of rewards if you take the appropriate steps.
While you may have a mounting list of tasks to do before putting your home on the market, you’ll also want to include the following plumbing improvements.
NEW WATER HEATER
Homeowners use water heaters every day, from washing dishes to taking showers so a new one is always appealing. It will assure a potential homebuyer that they’re not stuck with an old, sediment-filled unit that’s no longer efficient.
Many faucets have long lifespans, lasting around 12 to 15 years. However, they get a ton of use. If your faucets look really worn, we recommend replacing them. This is an inexpensive and easy-to-do project with a possible high payoff ratio.
INSTALL A WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM
Having a whole house water filtration system installed can be a great investment with a payoff for when it’s time to sell.
INCORPORATE ECO-FRIENDLY PLUMBING FIXTURES
Low-flow toilets, low-flow showerheads, and tankless water heaters are among the eco-friendly plumbing solutions appealing to homebuyers. These plumbing fixtures will not only help reduce carbon footprints, but they’ll also lower utility costs.
If your home is older than 60 years or still has old galvanized pipes, installing new piping is highly recommended. Copper and PEX are resistant to corrosion and can be safely used for indoor plumbing. Replacing your pipes is also a big selling point.
