If you’re thinking about selling your home, it may seem like the wrong time to be giving your floors an update. But renovating and installing new floors in your home can actually drastically increase your home’s value. Here are the best things you can do for your floors to get the most value.
Installing hardwood floors
Most people are aware that hardwood floors add a lot of value to your home, especially compared to carpet. Hardwood in your living room, dining room and other communal areas can give you a great return on your investment. But only get new wood floors if you can afford it–you won’t want to risk not getting your money back.
If you have older hardwood floors, there’s no need to replace them as most hardwood floors are meant to last a lifetime. If they’re looking a little beat up, consider having them sanded and refinished and they’ll look good as new!
Replace old, dirty or smelly carpets
This should be a no-brainer: no one is going to enter a home with dirty carpets and immediately make an offer. While carpet doesn’t usually add any value to your home, it will at least show your home’s true value by helping it look its best. Just make sure you’re picking a neutral colour for carpets. And check out our tips for when you should replace your carpet!
Remember, making sure your Guelph home looks its best in every way will help you sell your home faster and help increase its value!
