Home Plumbing Advice to Increase the Value of Your Property

Author: Lee Devlin

Published on: 30/01/2019

Increasing the quality and efficiency of your home plumbing is not only essential for everyday life and running a hassle-free household, but it’s also hugely beneficial if you’re looking to increase the value of your property.

If you are planning to sell your home in 2019 or you want to increase its market value for the future, home plumbing is one of the critical aspects that potential buyers will take note of. Therefore, it’s something that you should always be looking to maintain or enhance.

In this post, we provide home plumbing advice and improvement ideas that will increase the value of your property.

Repair Existing Home Plumbing Problems

Many things can impact the value of a property, both positively and negatively. As one of the most vital aspects of any household, failing to maintain or fix home plumbing issues can cause a whole host of problems that affect your quality of life. If you’re looking to sell your home, not keeping on top of any problems will prove to be a severe problem when it comes to attracting buyers or getting a price you’re happy with.

It’s for this reason that it’s so important to fix any existing home plumbing issues you’re aware of as soon as possible. Even if you’re able to live a perfectly happy life with a few home plumbing problems, it’s not something that potential buyers will find very appealing. Hiring a plumber will benefit you, as they’ll not only fix the problem, but there’s also a good chance they’ll increase the efficiency and quality of your plumbing system — increasing the value of your home in the process.

Update Your Bathroom

It’s safe to say that your bathroom and your kitchen (which we’ll get to in a minute) are the most important rooms in your home, but let’s focus on your bathroom for now. When people are in the market for a new home, there are key areas of the property that will influence their decision, and the bathroom is one of them. If yours is outdated, shows signs of wear and tear, or there are plumbing issues such as blockages or leaks, you’ll find that hiring a plumber is a worthy investment.

While some people may see this as a pointless venture if you’re soon to be moving into a new property, a bathroom that looks good and works efficiently will substantially increase your chance of selling your home, as well as its overall value. Improving your home plumbing and making some aesthetic upgrades is highly worthwhile for something that doesn’t have to break the bank.

Upgrade Your Kitchen

Your kitchen is another area of the house where the quality of your home plumbing is essential, and it carries a lot of weight when it comes to attracting buyers. Whether it’s a more serious issue such as a burst pipe or a malfunctioning heating system, or something as simple as a leaking tap, getting it fixed by a reputable professional will give you a much better chance of fetching a price that you’re satisfied with.

Even if you don’t have any pressing home plumbing issues that need to be addressed, upgrading your kitchen is an ideal way of upping the value of your home, and it’ll also provide you with a place where you can enjoy preparing your meals while you wait to finalise the sale.

We have always had various faults with one lavatory, the most recent one was finding that it was constantly running water.
By luck, I found Homecure Plumbers, they are close to my work which is convenient. I emailed them, received a quick response from Shelley and a plumber was booked to come in the next working day. Kevin came and found that our cistern was leaking which was causing extensive damage. What I liked is that he also took time to show and explain what was happening.
Kevin left, not long after I received a quote for a new cistern plus the labour, we confirmed to go ahead and Kevin came back that same week and efficiently carried out the replacement. Everything is working great now.
Overall, a fantastic experience with this company whom I will definitely use again and would recommend.
Many thanks!
