How to Prepare Your Plumbing Before Selling Your Home, La Crosse, Wisconsin

From painting the walls to repairing the roofing, there are a number of steps homeowners must take in preparation for resale. In addition, homeowners should take care to assess the state of their plumbing systems. The following guide offers a few key steps to ensure this integral part of your home is buyer-ready. 

3 Steps to Prep Your Plumbing for Resale

1. Assess Aesthetic Concerns 

Buyers will definitely take notice of aesthetic issues ranging from grime and grout to rust on faucets, so ensure that all the plumbing in your home looks aesthetically pleasing before listing it for sale. Whether you enlist a cleaning service or do-it-yourself, make sure every appliance and fixture sparkles, from the inside of your washer to the toilet bowl. 

2. Repair Plumbing Problems 

plumbingOf course, even if your plumbing appears clean, you must address any leaks, vulnerabilities, or damaged fixtures before you sell your home. Enlist a professional plumbing service to conduct a thorough inspection of your property and perform any necessary repairs beforehand. A professional can prevent water damage or other issues that could jeopardize your sale, as well as generally ensure the property is ready for purchase.

3. Check the Pressure & Quality

Many homeowners prioritize water pressure and taste, so assess yours before you put your home on the market. Replacing showerheads to more advanced models, addressing leaks, and cleaning faucet aerators can help improve pressure. If your home has hard, odorous, or discolored water, consider improving its taste and quality with a water softener and filter.
