Plumbing Services That Give Your Home An Affordable Upgrade That Might Entice A Buyer

Posted on

Before you put your home on the market, you'll probably want to make a few upgrades so your home is more enticing to buyers. Some upgrades are not too expensive, yet they can make a good impression on people touring your home.

Upgrades can also make it look like your home has been well-maintained, and that's important when it comes to your plumbing. Here are some plumbing services your home might need to get it ready to sell.

Fix Every Drip And Clog

Your potential buyer will look your home over carefully for signs of problems, especially during the inspection. Make sure your plumbing is in good repair before you put your home on the market. Have a plumber look under all your sinks for signs of drips and make sure none of your faucets have even a tiny drip.

Also, ensure your toilets flush and your drains empty powerfully so buyers won't think there might be a clog in the system. If the plumber thinks the line could be partially clogged, consider having the drain or sewer line cleaned with a hydro jet.

Have the plumber give your system a quick inspection so they can identify problems the home inspector might find. You can then discuss plumbing services that could be needed so your plumbing will be in good enough shape to entice a buyer.

Install Modern Luxury Faucets

A luxury faucet in your kitchen could be a good investment if you have an economy chrome faucet currently. A gooseneck faucet with a sprayer, or another luxury faucet, makes your kitchen seem modern, even if you don't want to spend money on new countertops or cabinets.

A beautiful faucet in the bathroom could make up for a basic vanity by adding a little glamour. Plus, a long shower wand could be a nice touch for the tub.

Think About A New Water Heater

If your water heater is near the end of its life, potential buyers may think they'll need to replace the appliance shortly after buying the house. By installing a new water heater, your buyers won't have to worry about it failing any time soon.

Plus, a new water heater should be energy efficient, and they may appreciate the energy savings it will provide compared to an old heater. You might even want to switch to a tankless water heater if the switch doesn't make the installation too costly.

You don't have to spend a lot of money on plumbing services unless your plumbing needs a lot of repairs. Focus on upgrades that don't cost too much but add value to your home or that please potential buyers when they tour your house.
