We are fortunate enough be enjoying a housing market that has really hit its stride. Home sales are on a steady incline – as are prices – making it a great time to buy or sell. If this booming market has you considering your options, you may be interested in ways to maximize the value of your home, including new flooring. With all the flooring options available to you, which will give you the most bang for your buck? My Affordable Floors, your Milwaukee flooring experts, has the answers you need.
When it comes to flooring and appealing to buyers, one thing is clear: old flooring is a major negative. Stained, worn carpet, dated and cracked tile, and water-damaged hardwood will turn off buyers and drop their number quickly. They’ll see old flooring as a built-in cost, something they will have to pay to replace, often before they even move in.
For many, the obvious quick-fix solution may be to install carpet. It’s easy to picture your potential buyer walking in, enjoying the smell of new carpeting, and feeling like this house is ready for a new owner as well. However, the modern housing market has distinct tastes, and on average, carpeting is not always one of them.
Until recently, wall-to-wall carpet was prized in the housing market, and held significant value for your sale. Modern buyers are seeing carpet, even freshly installed, as of lower value than hardwood and even some newer laminate materials. Often, if you’re looking to improve the flooring appeal of your home, it’s advised to pull out old carpet and restore or install wood flooring.
My Affordable Floors offers expert services for all flooring types, so no matter which choice you make to maximize your home’s value, you know you’re in the right hands. We can recommend a flooring type that suits your home and gets you the highest return on investment for the installation. Potential buyers will be amazed at the quality of the work, and encouraged by the fact that the right floor is already in place.
