Fireplaces and Getting Top Home Value for Waxhaw Houses for SaleFireplaces and Getting Top Home Value in Charlotte

There’s nothing like gathering around a crackling fire on a cold winter night. Fireplaces are often the focal point of a room and can make or break whether a potential buyer makes an offer. Sure, fireplaces are beautiful luxuries, but an outdated one is an eye sore for any otherwise gorgeous Fort Mill house for sale. Read on for more details on fireplaces and getting top home value!


Update Brick Fireplaces

Brick fireplaces give a home for sale in Providence Plantation a truly classic and timeless look. However, if the rest of the house is updated and modernized, brick can sometimes look out of place.


If you have a hefty budget for renovations, opt to simply replace the brick with a material that fits the overall style of the home. However, for many this isn’t a good return on investment.


Instead, try painting the brick a chic color that will really make the room come together. Brick paint is specifically designed to retain that beautiful brick texture. With a quality paint and a professional application, buyers will assume the paint is the actual color of the brick!


Choosing the Right Mantel

The right mantel really adds grandeur to a room. However, if you have a less-than-spectacular one, it puts a damper on a room’s pizzazz.


Again, the key is choosing a mantel that will fit the overall style of a Waxhaw home for sale. For example, if your house features clean lines and classic neutrals, a dark and ornate fireplace will look very odd.


Updating your mantel is a basic requirement if you want to wow buyers and get top dollar for a house for sale in Waxhaw!


Gas Fireplaces are Best

For a clean, easily maintained fireplace option, gas is almost always the best. Most are specifically designed to heat an entire room so you can really tap into energy savings.


With wood burning fireplaces, much of the heat goes up the chimney. Additionally, you are stuck with the maintenance that goes along with keeping it clean and safe.
