Why Hardwood Flooring is an Investment in Your Home

hardwood floor home investment

Hardwood flooring seems trending these days, even with homebuyers in Belleair, Dunedin and Palm Harbor. While tile is still a viable option, many buyers and homeowners are requesting hardwood floors instead throughout the living areas of their homes. This is for good reason! If you’re planning to sell your home in the future, hardwood floors may help your home sell. Here are three reasons why they are a great choice.

1. Homes with Hardwood Floors Sell Faster and For More Money

Right now, it’s a seller’s market. However, this can change quickly, so no one knows if that will be the case when they are ready to sell their own home. As of this time, the majority of Realtors® say that a home with hardwood flooring is easier to sell, sells faster, and for more money than a home with any other type of flooring.

2. You Can Update Without a New Flooring Installation

Because the hardwood flooring refinishing process allows you to take the floors down to bare wood, if you tire of the stain and finish you have, you can change it. Other flooring materials have to be completely removed and new flooring installed in order to change the color. Although refinishing your hardwood flooring costs money, it doesn’t cost nearly what new floors of any other type would cost.

3. Hardwood Floors Last Longer Than Other Flooring Materials

Have you ever gone to a historic home and seen beautiful original wood floors? That’s because wood flooring can last for more than a century. Once you invest in hardwood floors in your home, as long as you take care of them with proper refinishing every seven to ten years, you’ll be able to enjoy your wood floors as long as you live in the home.
