As fall begins, this is a good time to clean the fireplaces and make them a highlighted feature of your home, especially during a home sale. Draw attention to the fireplace by putting a dramatic piece of art on the mantel, or creating a seating space in front it. If the fireplace is outdoors, set chopped wood on the hearth. A fireplace is a selling feature, make the most of it. Remember, to set-up a fireplace during home showings and open houses, but do not light it, safety first.
