Take a look at the facts:
- New single-family homes with natural gas appliances sell on average 6 percent more than comparable homes built with electric appliances.*
- More than 70 percent of prospective homebuyers prefer natural gas.*
- Home sale data shows that 89 percent of regional builders reported that their homes equipped with natural gas appliances sell faster.*
Savvy homebuyers understand that the cost of home ownership includes monthly mortgage and utility expenses. Choosing natural gas is a decision that helps them stretch their energy dollars. When buyers compare potential electric and natural gas bills, it is clear that natural gas appliances offer significantly lower energy bills than homes with electric appliances.
With those monthly savings, your buyers can enjoy a variety of home upgrades without increasing their net monthly expenses. Imagine enhancing each home with a new natural gas fireplace, a beautiful stone countertop, bathroom spa tub or other unique additions!
