You do not have to wait until you move to a new house to add value to your home according to Criterion Flooring, a Hertfordshire Wood Flooring specialist. By adding value to a home that you wish to sell through home improvement such as putting down wood flooring, you could reap the rewards and sell your home much faster.
The days when you could do up your home with a lick of paint and then put it on the market for a quick sale are long gone. Since the property market crash, selling a property is much harder than it has ever been before, and that is why house sellers need to be on top of their game and provide the buyer with a house they will fall in love with straight away.
With the economic climate struggling, house hunters want a property where they do not need to do much work to make it into their prized home, and this is where the seller comes in. By providing Wood Flooring, house hunters will see a nice home, the floor is one of the first things they notice and by installing quality wood flooring, you are that one step closer to selling your home.
A survey by the National Wood Flooring Association asked estate agents what impact wood flooring has on a property they are trying to sell, 82 per cent said a home with wood flooring sold faster and for more money.
By investing in wood flooring, you are providing your seller with a home that not only looks nicer but also is also easier to clean. Wood flooring makes it much easier for the new buyers to clean their property; it also saves them money in the long run. With carpets, they have a shorter shelf life than wood flooring and when it comes to maintaining a carpet within a home, especially when it comes to spills on a carpet or deep dirt, wood flooring is much more cost effective to clean.
