Does Well Drilling Increase Property Value? January 25, 2019

Does Well Drilling Increase Property Value?, Oconto Falls, Wisconsin

When you invest in improving your property, that investment is reflected in the sales price of the home. This is true with well drilling too. While the amount varies, wells can add significantly to the value of the home because they are convenient, money-saving features which will benefit the new owner just as much as they benefit you.

Why Does Well Drilling Add Value to the Home?

A well that provides fresh drinking water is an alternative to the municipal water supply and costs much less to use as a residential water system. This is because the only cost involved is the electricity to run the pump, while utility companies charge enough to cover their pumping and employment costs. Also, well water often tastes better due to its mineral content.

Does It Matter Which Type of Well You Drill?

Well DrillingWells that are deeper cost more to create. Deeper wells are necessary in areas where the water table is farther underground. The longer and more costly the well drilling process, the less you'll profit from adding the well, although even deep wells which provide drinkable water are worth the investment. The type of water available also affects the value. Drinking water saves the most money and brings the best sales price, but if your property is large and needs expensive irrigation—either for landscaping or crops—even a well that doesn't provide drinkable water can be an asset.

When Should You Call a Professional?

If you want to add a functional water well as a feature of your property, start before listing your home for sale. Contact a local provider for well planning advice to choose the location of the well and get help understanding what the water quality is like in your area. If you already have a well but it isn't in use, have the water tested and consult a drilling company about whether it can be restored to full function and usable water quality.
