Can Repiping Increase My Home's Resale Value?

If your home still has outdated plumbing materials such as polybutylene pipe or old galvanized plumbing, it is essential to repipe your home before putting it on the market.

Our article on polybutylene repiping covers issues related selling a home with poly pipes. Any old piping will be uncovered during the inspection process (and if you know there have been issues with your old plumbing - you'll need to disclose it to prospective buyers).

Repiping outdated plumbing may be an easier and less costly process than you might have imagined. If you are considering selling - repiping first will almost certainly have a positive payback with more buyers, and no concessions given for old plumbing.

Here at Repipe Specialists, our repipes are typically completed in as little as one day (returning on a second day for wall patching). We can handle everything, including permits and inspections. Schedule a free quote.

What are the Benefits of Repiping Before Selling My Home?

Repiping your home before listing it on the market can substantially increase it's attractiveness to potential buyers, leading to more offers and potentially covering the cost of repiping. Some of the benefits of repiping before putting the house on the market include:

  • Enhanced Structural Integrity: Old or deteriorating plumbing systems can cause various issues, including leaks, bursts, and water damage. By repiping the entire home, you ensure that the plumbing system is in excellent condition, eliminating the risk of water-related problems. Repiping guarantees improved structural integrity, which can be a significant selling point.
  • Improved Water Quality and Efficiency: Aging pipes can accumulate rust, sediment, and mineral deposits, leading to poor water quality and reduced water flow. By repiping the entire home, you can significantly enhance the water quality and efficiency of your pipes. Improving water quality and efficiency can be an appealing feature for potential buyers looking for an up-to-date and clean water system.

  • Increased Buyer Confidence: By replacing outdated materials such as polybutylene and galvanized plumbing with modern options like copper piping or PEX tubing, you can eliminate the risk of future plumbing issues and instill confidence in potential buyers. When potential buyers see that a property has been repiped, it signals that they won't need to worry about plumbing problems in the near future, adding value to their investment.
  • Avoiding Inspection and Pre-Close Surprises: We have performed many "emergency" repipes, where the closing of a sale is at risk due to both home inspection findings and homeowners insurance refusals. Some insurance companies are refusing to provide coverage for homes with polybutylene or galvanized pipes. If your home is in a community with known historical slab leak issues - a repipe (that routes plumbing outside of the slab) is the only permanent solution.


Is a Full Home Repipe Expensive?

Repiping a home before reselling offers significant financial savings and the potential for increased property value. While there is an upfront cost associated with repiping, it is crucial to consider the long-term benefits and potential returns on investing in up-to-date plumbing systems.

In general, our plumbing replacements range from $4,500 for a two-bedroom, one-bath house to up to $15,000 for larger properties and more complex projects. Here at Repipe Specialists, we have performed thousands of repipes across the USA, specializing solely in full home plumbing replacements. We have a detailed article on the cost to replace plumbing.

Buyers are more likely to purchase a home that has already undergone necessary plumbing upgrades, saving them time, money, and potential headaches associated with addressing plumbing issues in the future.
