Natural gas appliances in the home are not only desirable, but they also can significantly impact the resale price of your house (yes, really!). Homes with natural gas sell for 6% more on average than those using electric energy. That’s because more than 70% of homebuyers are looking for their new home to be fueled by natural gas appliances.

Consider these energy efficient, buyer-friendly improvements before you put up that “for sale” sign:

Yep, natural gas is an option for this essential house feature. Even better news: people are willing to pay more for energy efficient homes. Although natural gas-powered furnaces have been around for a long time, having your home’s temperature regulated by natural gas is fairly new and definitely attractive to buyers.

Nothing says housewarming quite like double the amount of available hot water. Everyone loves a long, hot shower, and natural gas water heaters can make that happen for every member of the family. If you currently have an older water heater model, this energy efficient upgrade might be worth considering.

Natural gas stoves heat more quickly, have lower temperature settings and are more efficient than their electric counterparts. Those blue flames are sure to catch the eyes of potential buyers, especially since an overwhelming majority of people prefer to cook with gas appliances in the home.

Want to really have the buyers lining up? Here are a couple of ways you can turn up the heat on your home’s exterior:

  • Light up your front porch and provide a welcoming first impression with energy efficient outdoor natural gas lanterns.
  • Install the coziest of gas appliances: an outdoor fireplace. More than 50% of buyers are willing to pay a premium for homes with outdoor living space, so make sure yours is extra inviting.
  • Add an outdoor natural gas pizza oven or a built-in natural gas grill, two appetizing options for those looking to attract high-end buyers.

Adding these natural gas appliances will make your house the hot commodity on the market.
