Gas Stoves in Real Estate: How You Can Create Listings With the Details Buyers Seek

Gas stoves have been in the news a lot recently with media discussions focusing on the possibility of harmful emissions. As a result, a U.S. regulator has floated restrictions on new stoves. Some cities and states have moved to ban gas cooking in new buildings.

But for many real estate agents, there is no debate.

The gas stove remains the most popular cooking appliance for home buyers.

And there is data to back them up. According to a 2021 National Association of Home Builders survey, 51 percent of home buyers said they prefer to cook with gas compared to 39 percent for electric.

Kitchen stove type can have a small but meaningful effect on sales price and days on the market, particularly in competitive markets.

With WPL, you can create listings with gas stoves, kitchen equipment, or any other details buyers seek.
