Resale considerations for removing fireplace and adding luxury items

8 years ago

Hello, we in Phoenix Az. and thinking about getting rid of a fireplace which will make the layout of our living room much nicer, but before we do, we want advice on whether the fireplaces add any value during resale? I rarely even used my FP when I lived in a colder climate, so I can't imagine using it here.

Another question for resale value-add is concerning two luxury features we are considering adding: plantation shutters (would be $5k-$7k) and adding "air bubble" feature (about $1000 extra) to a bathtub we are getting. Hopefully we can get general guidelines on what is more/less likely to improve resale.
