Plumbing Tips for Selling a House

If you are getting ready to sell your home, it may be time to take care of those plumbing issues that may make a difference to potential buyers.

To begin, you really need to take a thorough look around your home. Plumbing issues can be broken into two areas: aesthetic or functional. The aesthetic issues can be as much of a problem as the function to the typical buyer. Regarding aesthetic, look for corrosion and general crud under sinks and at your water heater. A buyer will consider these potential problems even though they may just be appearance issues. Also, pay special attention to water stains on ceilings and walls. Even if the leak is no longer active, that stain indicates a past or present problem.

On a more functional side, fix leaking faucets now before you show the house. You will probably end up having them fixed before the sale is final. Also, don’t forget to clear all slow running drains. It is not unusual for home buyers to check the drains and a good home inspector will certainly report these problems.

If you are not sure of all of your home’s plumbing needs before going to market, enlist the aid of a professional plumber. A good plumber has seen it all and knows how a properly functioning plumbing system should look and work.
