Your floors are one of the largest unbroken surfaces in your home, so it’s no wonder that flooring can have an impact on the sale price of your home. Installing popular flooring in 2020 can help you sell your home for more money. Here’s what you need to know.
Flooring Factors that Affect Resale Value
In recent years, engineered hardwood floors and luxury vinyl flooring have become a top choice among home buyers in the Midwest. Engineered hardwood is easier to install than hardwood, is budget friendly, and can withstand limited exposure to moisture. Its appearance mimics hardwood and matches nearly all types of furnishings.
Luxury vinyl flooring closely mimics the look of natural materials, such as wood or stone. The popularity of luxury vinyl flooring has grown with Midwest homeowners in the past five years. It’s construction makes it extremely durable and moisture resistant. It is also stain resistant and easy to clean.
Installing new flooring in your kitchen? Popular kitchen flooring includes high quality stone and clay tile. Buyers like this type of flooring because it’s easy to clean and made from natural materials.
The condition of the floors is just as important as the flooring type. Buyers like “turn key” properties, so floors in need of refinishing or replacement can devalue a property. Before you sell, install new flooring that will wow buyers.
High quality flooring equates to a higher selling price. Any kind of flooring, whether it’s engineered hardwood, luxury vinyl, tile, or carpeting, will fetch a higher price if it’s a higher quality product.
