You may be in the market to sell your home or in the process of remodeling. A smart approach in either case is to work to save money and increase your home’s value. When it comes to plumbing, certain upgrades will give homeowners a greater return on their investment dollar for dollar. Here are a few plumbing-related tips that add value to your home:
1.)Upgrade your kitchen
Changing your sink, faucet, and adding a garbage disposal can increase the value of your home. The expense of remodeling a kitchen can be high but usually pays for itself – sometimes in multiples – my increasing home value and the amount of equity you have in your home while you occupy it.
2.) Water filtration
Water filtration will remove pollutants and chemicals from you main drinking source which is great for the health of your family. Installing a whole-house water filtration system is allows you to avoid spending money on such things as bottled water and replacing water pitcher filters. This will pay off in both convenience now and future value when it comes time to sell.
3.) Bathroom updates
A full bathroom remodel isn’t necessary to increase your home’s value. Minor bathroom updates on things such as fixtures, showerhead, faucet, sink and toilet can improve the overall look and functionality. By installing water-saving fixtures homeowners also save money and conserve water which is great for the environment.
4.) Repair existing plumbing problems
Many homeowners ignore small plumbing issues such as slow drains, leaky faucets, running toilets, water spots on the ceiling, etc. Constant leaks can become costly repairs and increase water bills. Before listing your house, make sure you have any and all existing plumbing issues fixed.
5.) Add luxuries
Add a utility sink to your laundry room or garage. Add an outdoor faucet to both front and back of your house. Install a natural gas line (if service is available to your home) directly to an outdoor grill or fireplace. Small upgrades to the plumbing in your home can increase value and provide you with ease and comfort!
