How Much value do Hardood floors add to the value of a home?

I have over 3,200sq feet of wood flooring in my home that looks increadable.  How can I determine what kind of value this brings to my home?  It seems that their should be some added value when comparing to the bank owned homes that have cheap or outdated  flooring in need of replacment or repair?

Hello Tod,


If you are looking to sell youre home and you would like to find out what your home is worth, hire a licensed real estate appraiser to do a full appraisal report ($350). Murrieta is still the top area that buyers are looking at to purchase property. When youre ready to put your house on the market, having an appraisal will give you confidence that you are obtaining FULL VALUE for your home.



GOOD LUCK!!

In this market, features like hardwood will not likely return full value in a sale. It may make your house more likely to sell before others, but will not put that installation cost back into your pocket.

Hardwood will bring you value... but not what you paid, every buyer expects there to be flooring... the trade off is that in an area where very few homes are selling, yours may be the one that sells... did you install for your benefit or the bene of the new buyer? most likely for you ... hope you enjoyed...

Good luck
