Modern Plumbing Conveniences That Can Increase Your Home’s Value
Many homes in modern society come equipped with the bells and whistles that consumers have come to expect. With knowledge and information available to us, at the touch of a finger, why would anyone expect anything less? Not all of the items are necessities, but they make our lives easier and tend to increase or decrease property values. Whenever potential buyers are looking at a house, they typically go to one of two places first which are either the bathroom or kitchen. These rooms have become known for making or breaking a deal, and investing in innovations could be well worth the effort, especially if you are considering selling.
A Disposal Can Increase The Value Of A Home
One of the main concerns surrounding garbage disposals is getting electricity to the unit. An electrical source must be near, and if one is not present, an electrician, as well as a plumber, will likely be required to complete the upgrade. However, on the plumbing end, minor reworkings of the drains under the kitchen sink will need to take place, and in some cases, the line in the wall may even need to be lowered to accommodate the appliance. Once the procedure is complete, with the simple flip of a switch, you will be able to dispose of your leftovers with ease. Afterward, regardless of whether you decide to sell your place or not, you will have increased the value of your home.
An Ice Maker Is A Great Choice
There are many ways to obtain a water source for an ice maker. Often, it can come from clear across the house if need be, but your plumber will be able to decide that after viewing your home’s layout. Some ice makers require a drain in the near vicinity to discharge wastes, and others may not. Kitchen sinks are often the pipes of choice, but there are other possibilities as well. Utility rooms, garages, and bars are also standard locations where these units become placed. A never ending supply of ice is perfect for parties or events, so if you host these types of functions often, an ice maker might be the right choice for you.
These two relatively minor enhancements can make your life easier, and add value to your home for the selling process. Not everyone needs these items, but they sure are nice to have, and you can bet that potential new owners will be looking for them.
