Does Having Hardwood Flooring Pay Off?

​Hardwood Flooring continues to attract home buyers.  Popular alternatives range from distressed or reclaimed wood for a rustic look to sophisticated dark hardwoods stained sleek black to traditional oak, which remains the favorite.  Yet, with more trends than ever, it’s tough to know which look will grab a home buyer’s attention.

For that reason, it’s often better to professionally clean existing carpet or refinish existing hardwood floors.  The 2017 Remodeling Impact report gives refinishing a sold 100% Return on Investment.  
The projects attracting home buyers aren’t necessarily inexpensive, but they cost less than a luxury kitchen or bath remodel.  That means sellers need to invest less to prepare a home for sale and will likely recoup more, if not all, of their investment.
