How Can Hardwood Floors Increase Your Home's Resale Value?

November 7, 2014 by | David | There have been 0 comments

As a homeowner, it can sometimes feel like a challenge to balance long-term benefits with immediate improvements. You want to make an investment for the future, but you also want to live in a home that feels like your own.

Striking that balance can be challenging, so Altrufir is here to offer the resources that can achieve both aesthetic and enduring value for your property. With suitable high-quality material, hardwood flooring is one of the most effective and efficient ways to increase the resale value of homes. 

In a recent article investigating elements that influence the real estate market, American Society of Interior Designers President Robert Wright noted, “When it comes to your money, I always would advocate wood because it’s a good return on your investment and it’s a product that everyone responds to. A nice hardwood floor -- that’s pretty much always been a sign of quality. It invokes a good feeling in people.” The numbers support Wright’s statement: hardwood flooring installation can increase a home’s selling price tag by up to six percent.

Armed with the right materials, and either an understanding of the installation process or a trusty contractor, replacing hardwood floors is a straightforward process. Douglas Fir offers a natural aesthetic, tight clear vertical grain, and hardness that will look beautiful and endure for generations to come. Potential homeowners prefer hardwood flooring because it represents a long-term investment. Unlike carpeting, linoleum, or other materials, wood is both timeless and robust. It won’t need to be replaced in a few years, and it doesn’t require costly cleaning or repair to prevent it from becoming an eyesore.

If you’re brainstorming home renovation ideas that will boost the value of your home, then chat with the professionals at Altrufir to learn more about hardwood flooring. It’s an asset that will bring beauty, durability, and decorative flexibility to your property today and for years to come.
