As a Realtor, I can’t emphasize enough the value a fireplace in a home brings. Families love the idea of cozying up to a fireplace in the winter, hanging stockings during the holiday season, and showcasing their prized family photos atop the mantle.

Angie’s List summarizes it best: “Fireplaces have been the centerpiece of homes for centuries,” and while they come in many different shapes and sizes, the methodology has remained the same since the late 1700s: They offer a place for families to gather.
