Adding a Fireplace Can Make it Easier to Sell Your Home

Long gone are the days when adding a fireplace to your current residence was a major undertaking. Now the hardest part of adding a radiant gas fireplace to your home is deciding its location. And, if you are considering putting your home on the market, a fireplace is a great selling point.

With ventless fireplaces one of the fastest growing amenities requested in a home, think outside the box when it comes to location. That bare wall in the master suite is the perfect spot for a safe and easy to install radiant gas fireplace. You could also include a double sided unit to divide an oversized combination dining/living room.

Looking for that special wow factor? Instead of traditional wood-like logs consider gas tips or river stones for the flames to rise out from. That certainly makes a great first impression with potential homebuyers.

Data from the National Center for Real Estate Research has determined having a fireplace may increase your home’s value by up to 12 percent and nationwide over 10 percent of prospective buyers are requesting to be shown properties complete with fireplaces.
