With the housing market booming, many homeowners are rushing to put their property on the market. However, in order to ensure the best value for your home, you need to ensure that your property is in top condition.
That’s why we wanted to share 5 plumbing upgrades you can make to your home, that will help you easily increase the value of your property.
1. Installing New Pipes
If your home still has a plumbing system with galvanised pipes, it is time for an upgrade. Galvanised pipes are prone to internal corrosion, damaging your systems and giving your water an unpleasant taste. Copper and PVC pipes are good replacements that will not only add value to your home but also improve your plumbing system’s safety and functionality.
2. Fixing New Taps/Showers
You don’t need to completely replace your bathroom or kitchen to make a difference to your home. You can improve the overall style of your rooms by making small changes like installing sleek taps or modern shower fixtures. Upgrading these appliances will give your home an instant appeal to home buyers and improve the functionality of your home.
3. Installing a Dual Kitchen Sink
Installing a double bowl sink is a simple upgrade in most cases, but can make a big difference to the appeal of your house when you decide to sell it. Most new homes are fitted with either dual or one and a half sinks, meaning many potential buyers expect homes to have them.
Installing a new sink is a quick and easy task that can be completed by your plumber and will make day-to-day cooking, washing and cleaning much easier and more convenient.
4. Adding An Ensuite
Adding an ensuite bathroom to your property, while not a small job, will instantly and significantly increase the value of your home. Many people have come to rely on having an ensuite or master bathroom in their home. This could be a make or break decision for some people when choosing their next home.
Your plumber will be able to advise on costing for different elements, so you can make an educated decision about whether you want a full bathroom, shower room or just an additional toilet and sink.
5. Getting A New Boiler
Finally, arguably one of the most important differences you can make to your home is installing a new boiler. People will not want to purchase a property with an old boiler and potential heating issues. By installing a new boiler, you guarantee that potential buyers will find a central heating system that works efficiently, performs well and offers them a warm and comfortable future in your home. Installing a newer boiler can also add £8k to the value of your home, according to comparison site Go Compare.
