Home Sales & Remodels: Either way, homeowners win!

Home Sales & Remodels

Either way, homeowners win!

A recent article by the National Association of Realtors reported that many Americans are saving more and spending less during the pandemic. Forty-six percent of more than 5,000 U.S. adults said they are “more of a saver now” than before the pandemic.

With more people home officing, home schooling and home entertaining it’s no mystery why home is where the heart is and also where a lot more cooking, baking, gathering with family & friends, learning, teaching, meeting & even virtual cocktailing is taking place.  Let’s face it – we’re all spending a lot more time at home!

Mortgage rates are down, and especially here in Arizona, snowbirds remain in cooler climates until the holidays.  Is now a good time to buy?  Perhaps.  If it is a good time, and the home needs a little TLC, is it possible to make it the home of your dreams?  Absolutely.

The same is true for home remodels.  Here lately, with all this time at home, DIY’ers are getting a handle on the “honey do” list as they make improvements on a home that they recently refinanced, or even paid off.


3 Things that Add Value to a Home:


  1. Add Beauty.
  2. Add Energy Efficiency
  3. Add Updated Systems (appliances and/or technology)

At Arizona Fireplaces we can help you with all three!

Go Outside & Play!


All this staying in has us itching to go outside.  The weather is warming up, the sun is shining, and the pool looks inviting, doesn’t it?  We are wound up!  Arizona evenings are so lovely this time of year that all we can think about is gathering with friends and family – and nothing says #letsgather like cushy seating and ambient fire.

Check out a new addition to our showroom floors, manufactured by Grand Canyon Gas Logs:  The Olympus Fire-Table collection.   These stylish backyard beauties turn your “quarantine” into a “quarantini” – that right, shake one up and mix it up online with your friends for a virtual happy hour!



This chic collection of fire tables is made from glass fiber reinforced concrete and is color dyed through in through.  There is no question that these designs are unique as each piece is molded from Grand Canyon Gas Logs’ proprietary plans.  These complete any outdoor entertaining experience featuring angled sides, over 10” of tabletop space for plates & beverage glasses and an ambient flame effect setting the mood or taking the chill off a cool night.  These come in five colors:  black, gray, white, bone & rust.


We have three shapes available – round, square and rectangle.  Any of these will make a nice addition to your outdoor living space.  They are pretty, practical, and most importantly, choosing shapes and colors that appeal to your unique design sensibilities make them all the more special.  Square and round shapes feature a 19” drop-in pan with 12” burner.



All tables are available in natural gas or liquid propane, match lit or hot surface electronic ignition colors.

For the media, add one of seven unique ½” reflective glass colors, lava rock, tumbled lava stones or Arizona Weathered Oak.
