Selling your home can be a stressful time for many homeowners. You may find yourself putting a few coats of paints in one room or cleaning out the clutter to make each room a bit more attractive to your prospective home buyers, but the value of your home lies in the bones of it, one of those being your plumbing. 

When you let specific plumbing issues go untreated, the value of your house can decrease, and your chance for selling it at the pricepoint you had hoped for can also be altered. If you are in the process of putting your home on the market, here are the plumbing things you should take care of now:

Water Damage Throughout Your Home 

Have a constant leak around a particular fixture, or old water damage in part of your home that you recently noticed? Though it might not have lead to any issues now, it can down the road, and be a sign of something major, that a future home buyer might not want to start their home journey with.

If you have any areas where water is pooling or water damage is present, it’s time to call a plumber to help find the issue at hand. 

Damaged or Old Pipes

Do you know the age of your plumbing? If your home is older and you have constant plumbing issues such as discolored water, persistent clogs, or leaks — it might be time to consider an upgrade. In some cases, it might just be the need to replace only a section of your pipes. 

Constant Clogged Drains

If your sinks are slowly draining or your toilet is overflowing, you’ll want to get a cleaning before you stock up on moving boxes. Even if you if find yourself with a quick fix, the chances are that the reoccuring issue is something deeper down in your plumbing pipes, something you’ll need a professional to spot and fix fast. 

Get Routine Inspections

It’s also not a bad idea to have a pro come in and inspect that shape of your plumbing. From your water heater to your sewer lines, you can get a true sense of what major issue is lying in your plumbing and what you can fix to improve your home’s value.
