Perfect Flooring for a Sure Sale
When putting your home on the market there is one important factor to remember when attracting potential buyers: homebuyers crave something new and fresh. Welcoming hunting couples or families into your home is business, and setting the stage to attract a buyer starts from the ground up with your existing flooring. Should you replace it? Should you repair it? These questions must be asked if you want to drive traffic into your fresh-on-the-market home and attract the right buyer.
Choosing to replace or repair your existing flooring before putting your house on the market is a big decision. Without knowing whom exactly you’re selling to it’s impossible to prepare your home fit for a specific party however a simple fact remains: buyers want a clean home. It’s a necessity that you examine your existing flooring, whether carpet, hardwood, laminate, vinyl or tile, and decide to replace or repair it.
Andrew Young, co-owner of City Tile in Murfreesboro said:
“Home buyers want new and fresh, and it’s hard to customize someone else’s needs. Let them make the expensive choices. Your job as the seller is to give them a clean home.”
Carpeting is a flooring option that is versatile and easy to maintain and install. Brands such as Ansonylon and Stainmaster Carpet offer economical prices and wide selections of colors and textures. Installing new carpet to welcome buyers into a fresh, clean home will up your sell value and provide interested parties with a canvas they can customize.
Hardwood and laminate flooring options are more expensive but are the most popular flooring options for homeowners. Deciding to install laminate or hardwood will guarantee a sold house due to the immense popularity these products hold in the design world. Alloc, a leading and trusted laminate brand, has a wide range of laminate flooring products that are simple to install and maintain and offer a sleeker design. Shaw Floors and Armstrong also carry stunning and economical laminate choices to cater to how you want buyers to see your home, and additionally offer a wide range of hardwood products if you really want to ramp up your home décor appeal.
Although carpet, laminate and vinyl flooring are perfect choices for some, you could be searching for a flooring option that establishes a sharper design appeal when buyers cross into your threshold. Hardwood flooring, the most popular flooring choice from celebrities and designers to your friends and family, will excite potential buyers and add substantial value to your home. Not only will the feel of your home change, hardwood flooring is also extremely durable, providing potential buyers with a flooring option that will be easier to maintain and will last throughout the years. Hardwood options include oak, maple, ash, hickory and much more.
