a 90 percent confidence range of
$256,600 to $284,200 (more than 6,600
to more than 34,200, respectively).
In short, the low end of the estimate
for an all-natural gas home (more than
$6,600) is higher than the high end of
the estimate (more than $6,000) for an
all-electric home.

Take it to Market
While multiple audiences should
enjoy these findings, the optimal
target to convey this message is your
allies or potential allies if you are not
currently tapping into such resources.
We published research in 2016 in
this very magazine that proved the
potential power of the Realtor as an
ally. This data should prove fruitful
when aligning with Realtors in your
area. Additionally, product retailers,
plumbers, and other suppliers can
5:42 pm
use this information to sell natural gas
during customer-facing opportunities.
Albeit difficult to sum up a study of
this complexity in a limited space, the
message is simple: the perception in
the market suggests that the presence
of natural gas drives up a home's value.
Or, more simply, people value gas.
You've likely been conveying this exact
message for years. We were fortunate
to prove it.
