HVAC And Plumbing Upgrades to Increase Your Home’s Value

Give Your Home Some Easy Plumbing And HVAC Upgrades To Increase Its Value

Late spring into summer is the peak home-selling season, which means now is the best time to get upgrades before you put your home on the market. First and foremost, you need to complete any repairs you have been putting off (i.e. patching that wall, finally getting the leaky faucet checked out, and other tasks on your “to-do” list). Then you can start focusing on making more plumbing and HVAC upgrades that will create additional value for your home.

Bathroom Upgrades

You don’t necessarily need to completely redo your bathroom with new cabinets or backsplash, but you can do some relatively easy changes that will transform the space. New faucets, a fresh coat of paint, showerheads, and re-stained cabinets can refresh your bathroom without requiring a huge sum of money.

Kitchen Plumbing

Kitchen styles change more quickly than nearly any other space of your home, and some simple plumbing updates can add hundreds to your home. Adding a farm sink, new faucets, and even new cabinet handles can add a more modern feel to your home and increase the appeal. Again, a new coat of paint on the walls and even the cabinets can drastically change the feel without replacing anything.

Adding a Dishwasher

If your home doesn’t have a dishwasher, adding even a basic one could become a huge selling point for buyers. Consult a plumber on installation and be sure to look at reviews when deciding on a machine, you can research some options here before even stepping foot into a store.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are preferred over traditional water heaters for their energy efficiency and space-saving properties. They save thousands year over year with more effective energy generation and can provide hot water just as well if not better. This is another way to modernize your home for potential buyers.

Drain Repairs

Have your drains inspected before you put your home for sale, as this is one way to ensure your entire plumbing system is working efficiently. Whether it is an easy cleanout or fixing a more serious issue, clearing your drains will help with pipe health and shower/sink experiences. First impressions are important!

Plumbing is just one aspect of home repairs that homeowners should consider when thinking of putting their home up for sale. Some of the highest return generating investments include HVAC replacement/repair, roofing replacement, and hardwood flooring. Before you begin investing, assess the areas of your home that need upgrades the most and budget accordingly. It is also suggested that modest kitchen upgrades like new cabinets and smaller appliances like microwaves and sinks have a reliable return as it is one of the main points of interest for buyers.

Keep in mind with all of these repairs, your home may have deeper issues that need to be looked at as well. Reach out to a trusted plumbing company like Mason Plumbing to take a look at your entire plumbing system in order to make sure your home is ready for resale.
