25 Feb Increasing Your Home’s Market Value with Hardwood Flooring
When you are thinking of getting flooring in your home, you are often thinking of how it will look and its functional purpose in your house while you live there. You want where you live to be warm, welcoming, and tidy looking, as well as have low maintenance, durable, practical flooring options that still allow your home to look exquisite. What you may not consider when choosing new flooring is how your choice could affect the resale value of your home. This article takes a look at how new hardwood floors can change the market value of your home right here in Coral Springs.
Hardwood Flooring – Practical and Beautiful
As stated above, when looking at certain types of flooring options for your home many people are often more concerned with aesthetics and ease of maintenance than with how the flooring could affect the resale value of the home. However, you don’t have to settle for one or the other when hardwood flooring meets all of those needs!
Hardwood flooring can add beauty and functionality at the same time. The shine of polished wood can make any room seem a little more sophisticated, and the classic look adds a welcome and warmth that can rarely be matched by another flooring.
Just because the flooring is beautiful does not mean that it cannot also be functional. Hardwood flooring is useful if it is anything. It meets the needs of most rooms in your home and can be customized and accented with rugs and floor coverings, allowing for a more personal touch in every place that you add hardwood floors.
Hardwood flooring upkeep requires minimal effort. Simple sweeping and the occasional polishing mop keeps these floors looking amazing. If a spill does happen, make sure you clean it up promptly, and it will not stain or affect the wood at all.
Most hardwood is made to last the tests of time. While your friends and neighbors are replacing their carpets for the second or even third time, your hardwood floors will still be looking great and functioning appropriately.
Hardwood Floors and Your Home’s Value
It is no secret that here in Coral Springs there are tons of outdoor activities; unfortunately, sometimes this means bringing in some of the outside on your feet or shoes. Whether it is sand, mud, or fresh grass clippings, the added mess can wreck certain flooring types. Tons of people shopping for new homes are looking for the same things you look for in your flooring. They want the practical along with the beautiful, and this means that they are now more likely to look at your home with favor because you decided to go with hardwood floors.
When discussing this concept with realtors, they advise that there is no actual data to prove that hardwood flooring will actually increase the value of your home. However, they also said that they have listened to their clients and have found that an overwhelming majority favor hardwood floors and that in fact, most buyers were willing to spend more money on homes with wood flooring. All of the agents I spoke with agreed on two points. Hardwood floored homes sell faster than houses with other flooring types. Homes that have hardwood flooring can typically sell for more money.
There is one major factor that buyers look at when they are viewing homes. When they see a house for the first time, they are thinking about what they will have to change to make it be the home of their dreams or at the very least meet their functional needs today. Most people shown houses in Coral Springs with hardwood floors, do not consider the flooring a change that they need to make and check flooring off of their to-do list. In this way alone, hardwood flooring is proven, with no data required, to increase the market value of your home. Having floors that can stand up to the active outdoor lives of Coral Springs residents are simply worth the extra money!
