How to Sell Your House - Beavercreek OH: If you have ever checked the home sale listings you must be aware of the attention that’s paid to the hardwood floor features of any home. If a house has wood floors, even if they are hiding under decades old carpeting, the sellers will list the home as featuring hardwood floors.

Hardwood Floors Attract BuyersBuyers tend to follow trends. The current trend is for hardwood floors, granite counter tops in the kitchen, and some sort of home office or play room. If you are planning to sell your house, it might be wise to take a look under your carpets if you aren’t sure what’s under there. You could just hit the jackpot.This doesn’t necessarily mean that you will need to rip up the flooring, expose, and refinish the wood floors, though. You just need to find them if you have them. Having those wood floors exposed already could be even better. You must remember to list the house with that as a feature so buyers will be aware.

When remodeling your home in anticipation of someday selling it, keep the wood floor idea in mind. They don’t go out of style, so if you refinish them you won’t be wasting your time or money. It will be worthwhile in most cases.If you must replace a floor that is currently concrete, carpet over plywood, or linoleum, you can put down laminate ‘wood’ flooring instead if you can’t afford the real wood variety. It’s not exactly the same and most buyers will be able to tell right away. But the looks are quite stunning these days, as manufacturers have perfected the look and feel of synthetic wood floors.

Synthetic wood flooring is quite attractive and can be a great alternative to the traditional stick on false tile floors, and cost about the same. They come in strips, just like real wood floors, and you can simply peel and stick the strips down where you’d like them. Pergo brand is one example of a well made synthetic wood floor. It has the look, but the sound that is made when walking across it is very different.

There are several different shades of ‘wood’ synthetic flooring available that will suit just about any décor. In the case of a floor that needs to be replaced, a synthetic wood floor will do the trick, along with some well placed area rugs that match the décor.
