Hardwood Floors are on Most Buyers' List of Wants

Hardwood Floors are on Most Buyers' List of Wants

If you're looking for a way to get more bang for your buck, taking certain considerations with upgrading and remodeling your home may be just the ticket for a high ROI and quick sale. Experts agree that remodeling kitchens and bathrooms promise the highest return on your investment, but they certainly aren't your only options.

In Realtor.com's article called "Is Replacing Carpet with Hardwood Always Worth It?", they mention HGTV's statement that when buyers and renters are looking for a home, their TOP REQUEST is HARDWOOD FLOORING. And according to the National Association of REALTORS®, out of those buying homes, 54% were ready pay more for a home that contained hardwood flooring. Realtor.com concludes by saying, "The return on investment for installing hardwood will vary according to your market and other factors, but hardwood flooring can often help your home sell faster." With numbers like these, it's safe to say hardwood flooring can only improve your chances of selling faster and putting more $$ in your pocket.

Our contemporary listing at 510 Quinn Court in Chapel Hill just went through the transformation from carpet to hardwood flooring in the main level dining and living areas. The owners believed this upgrade would improve salability and hold the value of their home -- and according to the experts, the percentages are on their side! Take a look at the before and after pictures of the main living space!


We are excited about this beautiful update in this sprawling home (did we mention it has a HUGE pool with amazing deck and sits on a large 1+ acre lot?) -- it's ready for a new owner! Contact us today if you'd like to see these new floors and this amazing home in person!
