Defective Plumbing; a Huge turn-off to Potential Buyers

Major plumbing issues are a huge turn-off for potential buyers. It’s one of the most important factors because it can cause a lot of damage depending on the condition of your plumbing situation.

Major plumbing issues are a huge turn-off for potential buyers.
Defective plumbing can manifest itself in two different ways:
  • Leaking
  • Clogging

A visual inspection can detect leaking, and an inspector will gauge water pressure by turning on all faucets in the highest bathroom and then flushing the toilet.

If the water appears dirty when first turned on at the faucet, this is a good indication that the pipes are rusting, resulting in severe water quality problems.

Check for Signs of Rotting Wood

Rotting wood could just be a sign of wear and tear on an older home; however, never make any assumptions. If the wood is rotting due to water damage, you may find you have a mold problem from excessive moisture.

Also, keep in mind that termites love rotting wood.
Wood rot can occur in many places like:
  • Doors
  • Window Frames
  • Trim
  • Siding
  • Decks
  • Fences

The home inspector will sometimes probe the wood to see if this is present, especially when the wood has been freshly painted. You owe it to yourself to get your home inspection done right to have peace of mind your home is safe and ready to hit the market.
