Within the property industry there are many different opinions on the precise value a well-fitted hardwood flooring can add to the value of your property. However, research shows that the initial investment of time and the material used does pay off in the end when it comes to selling your home. Recent reports have shown that the vast majority of estate agents believe that a home will sell twice as easily if it is fitted with a high quality flooring compared to other materials as it can add an air of class and elegance to any room.
Wood flooring is highly desirable within a home due to its appearance and longevity, available in a large variety of colours, styles and stains you are guaranteed to find the perfect fit for your home.
This type of flooring is also highly appealing to families with young children as it saves worrying about stains and spills throughout the years, as well as being easy to keep and maintain.
What do the experts think?
Phil Spencer from popular TV show Location, Location, Location thinks that;
‘Wooden flooring is one of those features that appeals to just about everyone and has great benefits when it comes to selling as well.’
‘If installed in the main living area of a house, it saves worrying about stains from spilt drinks and muddy footprints. This has to be a lot more relaxing than hovering with a damp cloth and bottle of carpet-stain remover.
‘Choosing hardwood flooring increases the value of your property. It is a great long-term investment and can actually become a strong resale argument, exceeding the initial installation cost of the floors. It also enables a faster sale and brings higher prices at the time of resale.’
Phi said it, not only will investing in solid wood flooring offer you a stunning flooring option that will only increase in character and beauty is it ages, but it will increase the value of your property!
