@Eric Stone not sure about your market, but in my market there would be no difference in resale value.
I think Pex offers a better resale value since it can’t freeze and burst. Pex can freeze but it won’t burst and cause even more damage.
It's not going to matter. I'm very much a copper fan myself when redoing bathrooms, mostly for any sort of complicated shower system. Never made a dime on my preference.
I've never heard of one being more valuable when it comes to resale, but I think you're less likely to have issues with pex. The only time I've ever had issues with plumbing was with copper piping because they can burst/kink/leak. I really love how flexible and versatile pex is and easy to make changes and repair if you're holding the property.
Pex is amazing. Nobody knows that difference and you can literally do it yourself way easier than copper.
I would go Pex. Very easy to install and is used everywhere in Europe. Make sure you get good fittings and go with copper bands rather than stainless steel. Best pricing I have found is on Supplyhouse
Definitely go with PEX. Stay away from very cheap pex. Get a good brand. Nibco, Uponor, Viega Etc. Also PEX should make you more money cause its doing the same job with a faster & cheaper install. Copper is also very good as long as you can solder a good joint but a but more expensive if your re-roughing an entire house. Just stay away from CPVC that stuff is garbage.
