Thinking about selling your Southwest Florida home? Now is the perfect time of year for selling a house — which means getting your house ready to sell! This includes things like power washing the siding, cleaning the windows, and organizing the storage areas. However, one of the most important things you can do is ensure that your plumbing is in tip top shape.
When people come to look at your house for purchase, they are interested in seeing how functional your kitchen is and if your bathroom is suitable for relaxation. To make sure that your home’s plumbing is inviting to potential buyers, here are some tips:
- While most sellers will clean the bathroom and make sure that the floor is mopped and the display towels are matching and tidy, they rarely pay attention to the little details. This includes making sure the grout all around the bathroom is clean, the shower door frame is free from mildew, the seal around the toilet is not cracked or missing pieces, and the cupboards are dust-free and clean.
- Take some time to check the water pressure in your home and make sure that it is strong enough. If not, there are many steps that you can take to improve it. You might even consider spending a small amount of money to replace the shower heads all together. Clean out the faucet fixtures and make sure that the toilet flushes properly. Low water pressure is probably not a deal breaker but, taking the time to investigate could reveal some small issues with your plumbing system that would be deal breakers.
- Have a professional Cape Coral or Fort Myers plumbing company like Avis Plumbing come to your home and inspect your plumbing. This inspection will provide you with information about any existing plumber issues so that you can have them fixed before you put your home up for sale. Minor plumbing issues are always better to fix as soon as possible because they can easily escalate to major problems that could cost you money and, potential buyers.
Selling a home can be exciting because it means a new chapter in your life. However, it can also be a stressful time because you are trying to make your home as appealing as possible and there always seems like so much to do. Whatever you do, don’t forget to give your plumbing a little TLC when you are preparing your home for the market.
