If you want to sell your home with the most success and for the best possible price, you need to update the flooring. When people view a home during a showing they want to imagine themselves living in it. New floors are much more likely to attract prospective buyers and make them feel at home and ready to move in. Peggy Ginsberg of S&H Flooring shared excellent information about affordable and stylish flooring that can make a home more appealing or even increase the value. Many realtors like Christine Downing-Hughes work directly with her to update client homes and make them sell much faster and for more money.
There are a Number of Affordable and Appealing Floor Types
Flooring can no longer be broken down into either wood or carpet varieties, because there are many new floor options that make attractive additions to homes today. The types of flooring you can get in order from most affordable to most expensive are carpet, laminate, tile, engineered hardwood floors, and custom nail down hardwood. Engineered floors are pretreated and can be glued to concrete in the span of a few days, but nail down wood floors take much more work and time, making them more expensive. Typically, a home will have a few different floor options according to convenience and tradition. Hardwood, laminate, and tile are often found on the first level of a home, while carpet is used on the second level. Bedrooms, family spaces, and informal settings in a home are great for cozy carpet like frisse. Dining rooms, kitchens, and entryways or halls are great places to install hardwood for a classic look. Some hardwood substitutes include tile, laminate, luxury vinyl, and porcelain tile. Peggy can consult with you and your realtor or contractor on the best styles and options.
