Before you sell your home, you’re probably seeking out different ways to go about increasing the property value. Of course, there are many options out there, yet there is one often overlooked: installing a fireplace. As it turns out, in the current real estate market, fireplaces are simply a desirable detail for many homebuyers. Compared to the national median sale price, properties with fireplaces tend to be listed for around 13% more—far from an inconsequential number. In particular, gas fireplaces are a trend currently booming on the market. So, before you install your brand-new fireplace, consider opting for a gas variety. You could be giving a noticeable boost to your property value in the process. Unsure whether a fireplace is for you? Contact us for advice.
A real estate inspection or home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes; it’s also not an evaluation of environmental hazards. See the NYS Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of a home inspection.
