Real Estate Tip: Plumbing Preparations

August 7, 2012

The plumbing is one of your home’s most mysterious systems. The pipes are hidden in the wall, and when you have a problem, you have to call in a plumber. Since plumbers’ rates are hefty, prospective buyers are often frightened away by evidence of leaky pipes, ceiling stains below shower pans, or antiquated bathroom fixtures.

If you are planning to sell your home, it is a good idea to solve your plumbing issues before you place it on the market. Take care of any cosmetic damage that leaks may have caused after the plumber has finished his work. Plumbing repairs are cost-effective, because most sales agreements call for all systems, including the plumbing, to be in working order. If you have a problem, you will probably have to repair it before the closing anyway, so by doing it ahead of time, you eliminate that issue. Plumbing that is in top condition will make your home appear to be well cared for and will make it more attractive to potential buyers.
