Not every time a plumber is called to someone’s home are they going to be asked to repair a plumbing fixture or avert an emergency situation. Sometimes, as is the case with this story of a homeowner in Nashville, Tennessee, one of our expert servicemen were called for help with upgrading all of the outdated plumbing fixtures in the home.
Upon arriving, it was explained that the homeowner was looking to sell their home as soon as they could, and felt they would have the best possible chance of selling it quickly if they increased the value of the home as much as possible. Aside from the large number of other upgrades, they recognized how long ago their plumbing fixtures had been installed and if they had them replaced with newer models the value of the home would go up, let alone become more attractive in general to prospective buyers.
Once the homeowner provided the fixtures that needed to be installed, our team simply installed them. These fixtures included a pull-out faucet and some eco-friendly options for their larger appliances, such as dishwasher and washing machine. They also decided to extend some rooms to turn them into different spaces that required some plumbing work, like a new laundry room from a small bedroom and a large storage space into a small guest bathroom. Lastly, they upgraded their water heater to a newer and more efficient model, perhaps one of the most attractive upgrades for prospective buyers.
The homeowner in the story effectively increased the value of their home by several thousand dollars. They were able to claim newer, more eco friendly, and more modern characteristics making for more incentives to buy their home.
