Ways to Increase Your Home's Value: Plumbing Edition

If you’re looking to put your home up on the market soon, then there are a few things that are running rampant in your mind. For starters, you might be worried about repainting some rooms or taking care of a hole in the wall, but what about updating and repairing some of your plumbing fixtures? Sure, this might be the last item on your list, but it can actually help increase the value of your home. Here are a few fixtures you might want to consider:

Purchasing a New Dishwasher

While it might seem as if this appliance comes equipped in every home, there is a chance that some homes don’t have one at all. Believe it or not, many potential buyers are looking to spend a tad more on a living space that comes with the bare essentials, rather than nothing at all.

Additionally, it’s also a rarity that a new homeowner will take their old appliance with them, so adding a brand new dishwasher would be a great investment to make. As an added bonus, if it happens to be eco-friendly, then that will make it even more of a selling point!

Install a Dual-flush Toilet

Since we’re on the topic of eco-friendly fixtures and appliances, a dual-flush toilet will be the perfect addition to any home — especially one that’s up on today’s market. Unlike a standard toilet, a dual-flush will give homeowners two different flushing options (one forceful, the other mellow) to help cut back on water usage.

Take Care of Any Repairs

Another important investment is to make sure that you take care of any repairs before your house tours begin. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Pipe leaks

  • Dripping faucets

  • Broken/loose toilet handles

Having these features (and more) repaired prior will leave you feeling at ease and give your potential buyers peace of mind when they walk through your home and test each plumbing fixture.
