6 Ways Wolcott Can Help You Sell Your Portland-Area Home
Planning on listing your house this spring? Wolcott’s expert plumbers, electricians, and HVAC techs can help you cross a few things off your list. Such as…
Invest in a Smart Thermostat
According to a survey done by Coldwell Banker, 77 percent of homebuyers say they’re looking for a smart thermostat in their new home. This simple and affordable upgrade can instantly make your home feel more modern and, in turn, up until its appeal to real estate shoppers. While you’re waiting for the fish to bite, you can enjoy the benefits, like better energy savings and in-home comfort. Wolcott offers only the highest quality smart thermostats from brands like Nest, Ecobee, and Honeywell.
Leaks are not a good look at a prospective home. Something as innocent as a dripping faucet may make potential buyers wonder what other horrors lurk inside the walls and below the floors. (Even if there aren’t any.) Plus, many leaks cause damage which can be unsightly or even dangerous. Have Wolcott’s plumbing pros fix your leaks now, and repair any water damage before you put your Portland-area house on the market to put buyers’ minds at ease.
Quite frankly, clogs are repugnant. But beyond that, they can cause some major damage. Wolcott’s plumbers can clear even the toughest clogs to help you signal to shoppers that your home is well cared for and prevent any clog-related complications down the road.
…And Low Water Pressure
You know how tiresome it can be to shower under a trickle of water? Well, so does everyone else. Low water pressure is a deal-breaker for many prospective home buyers, so have Wolcott’s expert plumbers take a look. We can help figure out what’s causing your low water pressure and then find a solution.
Upgrade to HE
The National Association of Home Builders’ 2021 study found that “green features” are desirable to more than 70 percent of home buyers — and that more than half of the people surveyed were willing to pay an extra $5,000 or more for a home that would save them $1,000 per year on utility bills. Since Wolcott is a three-in-one home services company, we can help you figure out the best ways to make your heating & cooling, electrical, and plumbing appliances more energy-efficient while respecting your budget.
Get that Rusty Water Heater Checked Out
If your water heater takes way too long to get hot, suddenly runs out of hot water, makes a lot of weird noises, or appears rusty, you may have something going on there that needs fixin’. Water pressure probs that only seem to happen when you’re using hot water can also indicate a water heater issue and water heater issues are important to resolve before you list your home. Wolcott’s pros can see whether your water heater is working safely and efficiently, make repairs, and even install a new water heater for you.
