Selling your home or looking to do renovations and remodelling? These are common ideas that many homeowners continually think about when it comes to asking the question of how to boost the value of their homes. Plumbing upgrades can be a great way to increase the value of your home. You might be pleasantly surprised to find that even small plumbing projects have the potential to provide a rather healthy return on investment. The local Roodepoort plumbers from The Plumbers In Johannesburg, share some quick tips and tricks to get the most out of your plumbing repairs and maintenance.
Inspect and Repair Existing Plumbing Problems
It’s quite easy for most potential property purchasers to immediately spot leaking taps, slow drains or even water spots on the ceiling indicating some kind of piping leak. These common types of issues can be costly, especially if left untreated, any buyer will begin to think negotiating on the price. While living with these issues may not be a problem for you, consider how much water is being wasted and that you are compromising your property value. The added value of fixing these simple issues far outweighs the costs.
Give Your Kitchen an Upgrade
No need to be excessive with a full remodel here. Spark up a fresh new look with some minor changes and additions. You can quickly and easily give your kitchen a breath of fresh air by simply changing taps, adding a new sink or even installing a garbage disposal unit can create a whole new visual aesthetic that will appeal to buyers and help by adding that extra bit of value to your home before it goes onto the market.
Modify Your Bathroom
In this case it’s again about the small details. We’re not talking about a large scale remodel. Pushing up the value of your property doesn’t always mean you need to go all out and change everything. Minor upgrades and modifications can change the overall aesthetic to be more appealing to potential house hunters. If your taps are a little outdated, start there. How about the shower head? Does it work properly, Is the pressure good? Does it get hot enough? If you want to add value, not only to your house but to the environment as well, consider installing water saving fixtures which could end up saving you a lot of money in the long run.
The Final Touches of Finesse
Have you ever found yourself thinking that there was a particular place in your garden where it would be very useful to have a tap installed? Perhaps a cleaning basin in your garage? Connecting an outdoor grill to your gas line (If you have one). These are some simple ideas that really help to add that little bit of utility value to any homeowner or buyer. Consider adding these little details of improvement to your property which could pay off in a better valuation.
