What plumbing upgrades will add value to your home?

The housing market is currently thriving, with demand having skyrocketed. This has triggered many homeowners to put their house up for sale. A key consideration for many buyers is how well the home’s plumbing system works. This is especially important in old houses which have not yet been modernised. If the home has a poor plumbing and heating system, this can look unappealing for buyers and therefore, the price is likely to be less than its potential. On the other hand, if the plumbing and heating system is up-to-date and in good condition, this can be a huge selling point for buyers and lead to a quick sale.

In this blog post, we go through 4 plumbing upgrades that can increase the value of your home.

1. New taps and showers

It may not be necessary to completely replace your bathrooms or kitchen, however, little touch-up can significantly add value to your home. For example, replacing taps or adding modern shower fixtures can make your bathroom look newer. This can make your bathroom look more appealing, making your asking price more justifiable.

2. Sink upgrades

The kitchen is an area most potential buyers focus on and therefore having up-to-date appliances can benefit you when selling your home. If you have a single sink, you could install a dual sink as this can be more desirable for some people. Or, simply change your dull sink for a new, shiny one.

3. New boiler

Purchasing a new boiler is a huge selling point for many buyers. Most people will not purchase a home with an old boiler as they do not want to be faced with costly issues further down the line or have to spend out on one in a few months.

Although this can be a costly expense, a new boiler can add money to your asking price as well as making it more appealing to buyers.

4. Ensuite bathroom

Most modern homes generally have more than one bathroom, however, some older houses will only have one ‘family’ bathroom. Today, most home buyers require more than one bathroom, more specifically an ensuite, and therefore, adding an additional bathroom is worth investing in. Although this is a more expensive upgrade, according to resi.co.uk, bathrooms have the potential to add 4-5% on your home’s value. This will also allow you to increase the value further by adding steam showers or heated flooring.
