What is price/percentage reduction for new homes requiring sewer pump system ?

1/30/14
Assuming a reduced value, marketing problem, if new home must have an uphill sewage pump system.   Potential buyers would be inclined to choose another home.....if no substantial price reduction.     Inclined to think twice before buying new high end home that required a sewage pump system......as compared to normal gravity drain system.   Opinion please:  "What should be percentage of price/value reduction w/ pump system ?  Thanks.

Most buyers are not going to give a second though to a sewer pump unless it is not working when you go to sell. Agents are not going to blackball your house and buyers won't either. High end buyers are pretty far from thinking about what sewer system a house has whether gravity or pump driven.

Get with local builders and ask them what the costs of this would be and this will provide an estimate for your question.
