11 HOME FEATURES BUYERS WILL PAY EXTRA FOR

11.  One  or  more  fireplaces

>  Percentage  of  home  buyers  willing  to  pay  more:  40%
>  Amount  willing  to  pay  extra:  $1,400

Some  40%  of  home  buyers  without  a  fireplace  said  they  would  spend  additional  money  for  at  least  one  and  cough  up  an  extra  $1,400.  The  fireplace, while  always  popular,  was  less  necessary  when  several  TVs  were  going  in  the  house  all  at  once. Having  a home  with  fireplaces  may  become  more  popular  in  the  future  as  people  spend  less  time  watching  TV  and  more  time  on  tablets  and  e-­readers.  These people  may  find  the  fireplace  a  good  place  to  cozy  up  and  use  their  devices.
