Gleaming floor

Good floors help sell homes

I was looking at this beautiful floor at one of my listing, and it made me think of the times I have shown homes to buyers.  The flooring is usually a topic of discussion, whether positive or negative.

When the floors are clean and beautiful,  buyers are happy that there is one less renovation that would be necessary.

If you are thinking of selling your home this Spring, pay attention to the floors, it might just get the home sold.

Hi Jennifer -- buyers look at all the details but the floors -- probably because of the expanse of the space - seem to get a lot of attention.

Jennifer, this is a good point.  Buyers always talk about the floors in a home. Real wood is always a plus.

This is a good point for listing agents and their clients. The floors should demonstrate the quality of the home.

Anytime a home looks "move-in ready" it is an advantage. Not only does a move-in ready home sell more quickly. It also brings a better sales price generally.

Oh yes, I so agree w/ this and thanks so much for the link and kind words.  Oh, and satin finish is the way to go...most popular and most practical.

Could not agree more Jennifer. It's the most visual part of the home, it has to look good!

Suzanne there are always comments on flooring, and I am happy when they are positive. 

Margaret unfortunately that is something some owners neglect.  Yes Debbie is a valued member here.

Lisa I find that to be the case, good flooring makes a great impression on the potential buyer.

Michael you have a point it is scrutinized because there is so much of it you can't miss it :)

Sharon I can't think of one occasion when showing homes that flooring was not a topic of discussion.

Roy one of those detail that should not be overlooked.

Jennifer you are right the floors are one of the first things I notice when I walk into a house and has a major influence on my initial opinion of the property.

Jennifer,  Great advice!  That floor looks shiny and new; one less thing for new buyers to worry about changing.
