The housing industry is booming. Whether you are getting ready to sell or refinance your home, adding to its value is always a smart move. Even if you are only looking to get some added features and functions and want to make intelligent investments, these five plumbing updates will provide a great return on your investment. In addition, many will even help you save some money on your monthly bills.
Install A Water Filtration System
A whole-home water filtration system is the best way to be sure you are drinking nothing but pure, healthy water. Many homeowners are becoming concerned about the city water quality and its impact on their health. And while the suppliers do make an effort to sanitize and purify the water supply, issues can arise. But when you have a water filtration system in your home, you know that you have pure water to drink no matter what happens in the water treatment plant. And it will cost only a fraction of what you are spending on bottled water.
Minor Bathroom Updates
Making a few simple changes like installing a touch-free faucet or a low-flow showerhead are easy and affordable updates. And they add to the function of the room and its appearance. In addition, these great upgrades will help you conserve water and lower your monthly water bill. Other basic upgrades like a new sink or dual vanities also increase the spa-like feel of the space without breaking the bank. And they add to the value and appeal of your home to potential buyers.
Make Any Simple Repairs
Sometimes the simplest choices are the ones that provide the best return on your investment. For example, some buyers will be turned off if you have a dripping faucet or a toilet that runs. Others will look at the home as lacking proper care and maintenance. The result is often a disappointingly low offer or an extensive repair list after an inspection. When putting your home in the market, save yourself the time and frustration of low bids and contingency offers hinging on plumbing repairs. Instead, make the simple and affordable fixes before you list.
Minor Kitchen Upgrades
Much like the facelift in the bathroom, a slight kitchen upgrade can have a huge impact on the value of your home. A farmhouse-style sink and touchless faucet will become the crown jewel of the room. Other features that will add value include a pot filler faucet, new garbage disposal, or an instant hot water spigot.
Add A Few Small Luxuries
Adding little luxuries and features that will set your home apart from all the others in the area is an excellent investment. For example, installing a utility sink in the garage or laundry room or a small wet bar will stand out to potential buyers and add appeal to your home. Other practical luxuries like an outdoor shower near the pool or spa or a water faucet at your potting table add functionality and value for you and any future residents.
