Just how much do potential homebuyers value a fireplace in a home?
According to a 2013 “Home Features Survey” conducted by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), more than you may have realized. According to the survey, a whopping 58% of homebuyers said that a home with one or more fireplaces was an important feature when making their purchasing decision. So it isn’t a big surprise that a fireplace makeover may add significant value to your home’s resale value, especially in certain parts of the country.
But once you purchase a home with a fireplace or two, you may find that you want to update the look of your new fireplace. While we have lots of ideas for you at Brick-Anew, we wanted to share a post that tackles this tough question, too.

“But appearance matters. In another survey from the National Association of Home Builders, more buyers cited looks (46%) than quality (31%) as an important fireplace trait.”-HouseLogic.com
