The right type of flooring and whether it is well taken care of can make a big difference to buyers. If your floor is questionably clean, here are a few fixes to help remedy the issue to make sure your home sells.
Does your home have hardwood floors?
You’re in luck. Buyers love hardwood floors and some will actually pay extra to get them. In fact, they could be that final selling point. If your hardwood floors are covered by carpet, painted over or showing anything but the natural wood grain, it’s time for an overhaul. Pull up those carpets and get started on the sanding.
With the ability to rent large sanders and other tools, you can either refinish the hardwood floor yourself or hire a professional. Remember, however, that hardwood floors in Virginia , Maryland, Ohio , Georgia and North Carolina homes have a tendency to show off scratches, dents and uneven surfaces. If you don’t think you can do an adequate job, hire a professional.
Does your home have carpeting?
If you don’t have hardwood floors, take a look at your carpeting. If it’s stained, outdated, bright or ragged, it’s time to pull it up. When laying the new carpet, use high-quality carpet padding to make it comfortable to stand on. Many buyers will kneel down and touch the floor, so make sure the carpet feels soft to the touch.
Does your home have tiles?
Although tiles are beautiful, they typically show every ounce of old grime, dirt, chips and cracks. Go through your home and replace any that are chipped, cracked or show signs of bad wear and tear. Make sure the grout is clean and new looking and use cleaners or a steam cleaner to get rid of any stains.
Beautiful floors can go a long way toward selling Virginia , Maryland, Ohio , Georgia and North Carolina homes. Take an honest look at yours. It might just get your home sold.
