Plumbing vs. Home ValueWe are seriously considering purchasing our rental, and are aware of several major projects needing to be done. One of them is the plumbing. The house was bulit in 1950, and the pipes are atrocious. We have old silver metal pipes about 1.5" in diameter that we can only stick a pencil through due to all the "goo/sludge/grime." Our concern is how much home value is lost due to this particular issue. Zillow estimates the home at about $350k, but if plumbing is that bad, wouldn't the value be much lower?December 01 2010 - Pleasant Hill00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
