Marketing Homes Protected by Sprinklers

A Guide for Real Estate Professionals


Home Fire Sprinkler Systems – A Growing Trend That's Here To Stay

If you're marketing a home with a fire sprinkler system, you've got a great selling feature. The nonprofit Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) wants to help you make the most of it.

Each year, fires kill or injure tens of thousands of people, more than 80% of them in homes. Among those most at risk are young children and older adults. What better selling feature could you offer than a home equipped with a firefighter on duty 24 hours a day?

Fire Sprinklers Save Lives

Fire sprinkler systems provide the ultimate in fire protection. They control or extinguish fires fast, limiting the spread of deadly heat and toxic smoke. That saves lives and protects property, family heirlooms and other valuables.

If You Haven't Yet Listed a Home with Fire Sprinklers, You Will Soon

Fire sprinklers have been saving lives for well over a century, but reduced labor costs and low-profile sprinklers have recently helped increase use of fire sprinkler systems in homes. And because fire sprinklers simply have no life safety equal, national codes now require sprinklers in new home construction. Similar local ordinances are in place in hundreds of jurisdictions across the United States and Canada.
