Check For Problems Before Assuming "Old" Plumbing Is Bad
Sometimes, a potential buyer will walk into a home, see older pipes, and immediately write off the house. They assume that because the pipes are "old," they will be problematic and need to be extensively repaired or replaced. This concern is not unfounded; pipes do become more prone to leaks as they age. However, pipes have a longer lifespan than many people realize. Copper pipes can last 50 years or more.
