Chances are you’ve already looked into solid hardwood flooring or engineered wood, especially when considering upgrading your flooring. It has stunning visuals and many advantages.
One of those advantages is that it increases home values.
Breaking it all down: the ROI
You can expect a 70% to 80% return on your investment. This is reflected in your home values.
Specifically, say your home is 400K, and you spent $17,000 on solid wood floors. Also, say you saw a 75% return.
That's $12,750. Your home is now worth $412,750, thanks to wood flooring.
If you're the seller
Prospective buyers often pay 2.5% more for a home with wood floors. However, if someone makes a full-ask offer, someone can top it by offering almost $1100 more: 413,550.
Other benefits include:
- Versatility: These floors work with any decor from modern to country.
- Cost-effectiveness. Both solid and engineered hardwood lasts for decades. For you, that translates to few, if any, replacement costs. That, plus the value-adding, is a pretty good deal! The experts at our hardwood flooring company can explain in more detail.
- Low maintenance: All they need is a regular (daily, if possible) dust-mopping and a once-a-week vacuuming (without beater bars).
- Wipe spills immediately: Water is public enemy #1 of solid wood, so protect solid from excess moisture.
Engineered wood’s construction makes it more stable and better able to handle water.
It's still a good idea to wipe spills, however. Other than that, use everyday routines like mats and protective furniture pads.
