Updates You Should Make Before The Housing Market Changes

With demand rising and interest rates expected to drop, experts predict the local market is likely to be more friendly to sellers in the coming year.

“The real estate and housing markets can shift quickly, and we recommend homeowners plan ahead so they’re in position to take advantage of any opportunities that arise,” said Joel Tucciarone, general manager of The Plumber Heating & Cooling. “Proper maintenance and preventive action ensure your property retains its value so you can respond quickly to the market. If you decide to sell, making repairs to your plumbing system or installing a new HVAC or water heater at the last minute can be inconvenient and expensive.”

Tucciarone urges potential homeowners to start with simple home maintenance and suggested improvements such as:

  • Inspect the HVAC system: Check the outdoor unit and clear away any debris. Inspect registers and vents for proper airflow and pay attention to any unusual noises from your inside heating and cooling units. Monitor the utility bill for unexpectedly high energy costs or sudden increases.
  • Inspect the plumbing system: Check your home’s pipes, toilets, sinks, bathtubs, showers and water heater for leaks or visible water damage. Keep an eye out for unusual or sudden increases in your water bill.
  • Consider cost-efficient upgrades: If any major heating, cooling or plumbing equipment is nearing the end of its expected life, consider installing a new energy-efficient unit. Investing in a heat pump water heater or low-flow toilets or adding features such as a programmable thermostat not only help cut costs and environmental impact — they can enhance your home’s resale value.
  • Consult a professional: If you identify any potential problems, schedule professional service. A trained plumbing or HVAC expert can quickly and effectively diagnose issues and recommend next steps, such as repair or replacement.
  • Schedule preventive maintenance: Regular HVAC and plumbing maintenance plays an essential role in keeping your home in tip-top shape. Routine inspections and maintenance can catch small issues before they become major problems, help you get the most out of your existing equipment and ensure your home’s systems are running as efficiently as possible.
