When you’re making renovations to a home, how do you know what’s a solid investment? A worthy update can either serve to reduce your cost of living while you remain in the home or add significant value to the home’s sale price when you decide to put it on the market. Fireplaces are a hot commodity for many home buyers.
According to a 2016 survey, buyers rank fireplaces as one of the three amenities they’d most like in their house. Additionally, 60% of new homes have a fireplace, up from 36% in the 1970s.
Realtor.com found that a fireplace was the No. 1 feature most often mentioned in home listings and more than 60% of homeowners and buyers say they are looking for a fireplace when purchasing a home.
Fireplaces have always been a hot commodity for home sellers and can boost a home’s value by as much as 12-15%.
