Have you been considering selling your home? Perhaps you've been thinking of upgrading your floors before you do so to significantly increase the asking price. Even if you're not thinking of selling for a few (or many!) years, new flooring will be a profitable, as well as enjoyable, investment!
Flooring renovation isn't nearly as unaffordable as most people think. In fact, installing hardwood floors can be one of the most inexpensive upgrades for the size of the job. Compared to the cost of other large renovation projects, such as resurfacing kitchen counters or adding new appliances, switching to hardwood floors is surprisingly affordable.
If you already enjoy the rest of your home, a flooring upgrade can be the finishing touch.

Home buyers are all about hardwood floors, and that's not likely to change anytime soon. This increase in popularity isn't some fad that's erupted onto the real estate scene in the last few years: hardwood floors have been steadily growing in popularity since the 90's.
New flooring can add to the home's perceived value, which in turns brings higher offers. Hardwood flooring infuses a certain warmth and natural beauty that home buyers adore in the current real estate market. These are all qualities that are desirable to potential buyers.
Hardwood can broaden the appeal of your property. Your home will appeal directly to the vast group of buyers that are specifically searching for hardwood flooring.
If the homebuyer would prefer carpet, it'll be that much easier for them to install it themself, without the added hurdle of ripping out the old carpet.
One thing to consider is that such an upgrade can make your home sell faster, even if it doesn't add to the monetary value. Time is money and the faster your home sells, the less time you have to spend worrying about it.
Quality carpet can last anywhere from ten to fifteen years, depending on the amount of traffic and care that is taken. Carpet needs to be replaced, whether in sections or whole rooms, when it becomes worn out or stained. Alternatively, hardwood flooring is durable and can, theoretically, last forever with proper care.
Even if you don't plan on selling your home any time soon, there is still value in upgrading to hardwood. One of the great benefits of wood flooring is that you no longer have to worry about replacing carpet as it grows old and dirty, because hardwood lasts much longer than carpet. Hardwood floors are much easier to keep clean and can be refinished when worn down, rather than replaced.
Hardwood has a timeless quality that carpet just can't compete with. It is also less likely that a buyer's personal taste will clash with your own. Carpet offers so many colors and textures that may turn away a potential buyer's interest.
The best part is the hardwood never goes out of style and will look great for years to come.
