Does your home need a makeover before you list it for sale, but maybe you don’t have the finances for a complete renovation project? No worries. You can increase your home’s value and make it more attractive to potential buyers with some smaller, more cost-effective projects.
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to increase your home’s value, as well as its overall aesthetic appeal, is by installing new plumbing fixtures in your home. If you’re interested in learning more about installing new plumbing fixtures, contact the licensed plumbers at Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating, and Electric today.
Types of Plumbing Fixtures We Install
When you work with Ravinia Plumbing, we’ll help you pick out the right fixtures to meet your style and budget and then provide installation services that ensure your fixtures are properly installed. Our plumbers are proud to install the following fixtures:
- Kitchen sinks
- Kitchen faucets
- Bathroom faucets
- Shower valves
- Lavatory bowls
You don’t need to replace all your plumbing fixtures at the same time. You can start with replacing your faucets this month, and then replacing your tub a few months later. This can help lessen some of the financial burdens in the months leading up to putting your house on the market.
Can Installing New Fixtures Increase Your Home’s Value?
Installing new plumbing fixtures such as faucets and toilets can significantly increase your home’s value. It’s estimated that kitchen and bathroom remodels can recoup 85% of the initial cost.
It’s always a good idea to keep your home updated and modernized, whether you’re planning on selling your home or not. Your fixtures might still be operating fine, but if your tubs, toilets, sinks, and faucets are decades old, they could scare off potential homebuyers who would rather buy a home that’s already updated with new fixtures. That is especially true given the trend of younger buyers wanting to buy their home “as is.”
New fixtures are more attractive and are stain and scratch resistant. Many new plumbing fixtures also come with improved functionality and water-saving qualities.
For example, older toilets can use up to five gallons of water per flush, compared to the 1.6 gallons water-efficient toilets use per flush. These upgrades are great selling points when your home is on the market.
