Home buyers consistently report that energy efficiency is one of the most important factors they consider when buying a home. According to research by the U.S. Department of Energy, tankless water heaters are 24 – 34% more efficient compared to standard water heaters when small quantities of water are used and still 8 – 14% more efficient in homes that go through a lot of hot water.
The increased energy efficiency – and resulting lower utility bills – can be a huge selling point to an undecided buyer.
If you have a bathroom or kitchen that looks old and outdated, a potential buyer is going to walk in and immediately imagine how much money it will take them to get the room up to date. If the fixtures are old and corroded or broken, then they may assume that the rest of the home is in poor shape too. Simply swapping out fixtures is relatively affordable and is something most homeowners can do on their own.
If your home does not have a garbage disposal it may seem as though it is not necessary but the truth is that homebuyers are looking for this option. While a person may not buy a home only because of its garbage disposal, the reality is that if it comes down to two different homes, the fact that one has conveniences such as a garbage disposal could be the deciding factor.
It is likely that replacing and upgrading your toilets was not on your must-fix list but the truth is that if you have old, stained, or outdated toilet, it can lower the price and desirability of your home. A buyer does not want to renovate the bathroom right after moving in, and while they may be able to live with some inconveniences until they’re able to upgrade themselves, they are unlikely to want to deal with a suboptimal toilet.
Once again, installing a water-saving toilet could be a selling point. The EPA estimates that about 25% of a home’s water usage comes from the toilet. An efficient toilet can significantly decrease the amount of water a household uses – which could reduce their overall utilities.
