If you are thinking about selling your house, you may be asking yourself, “What can I add to my home to make it more attractive on the market?”
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.

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