How will my house value increase with new hardwood flooring

I replaced my old carpets in 3 bedroom, hallway and stairs with new hardwood floor. I am wondering how it will reflect in my house value.

Providing that you have a good install at a reasonable price I would say that you would at least get a
few bucks back, it is going to make your property of more interest than anything.
But being a buyer I personally would take that into account and probably give more for a house than
one that was covered in laminate.
You can find deals at surplus hardware stores that may even have a few installers on hand to do the
install...the overall cost may surprise you.

There will be no reflection as far as value to your property.  It will probably be more attractive to buyers than the old carpeting you had and thus make it easier to sell.  Replacing carpeting, painting, roof,  etc., is all a part of maintaining your property

Hardwood floors are nice to some people and others may want carpet. This may add some value to your home if a buyer is actually looking for hardwood floors as a selling feature.

The problem with adding new things to your home is that a new buyer for your home may not like or want certain things in your home that you added. Everyone has a different opinion etc.

If you are happy with the hardwood floors and are going to stay in the home for awhile then you are getting good usage from removing your carpet and adding the hardwood. Keep in mind what you may like, someone else may not. I see this all the time with my buyers. If your old carpet needed to be changed out due to wear and tear then adding the hardwood was a good choice and it should enhance the showing of your home if you decide to list it. Enjoy your new flooring.

While it may not increase value dollar for dollar it will increase desirability with buyers.  Usually flooring choices do not contribute anything significant when it is being appraised.

That's a great upgrade! It won't necessarily increase your home value but it will make your home more desirable than homes without it. That could lead to it selling faster than your competition.

Please love the clean sleak lines of hardwood floors, no worries about pet or family stains.  It freshens the whole look of a house.  Currently the market is loving the new dark stained hardwood floors.   Hardwood floors are money in the bank when you take out old, dated, worn carpet.  It adds a great deal of value and appeal.
