Invest in new flooring and increase a home's asking price.
Investing $4000 - $5000 in new flooring can increase the value of a home by an average of $10,000, doubling the home owner’s return on investment, reports Betsy Schiffman in her Forbes Magazine article “10 Ways to Raise the Value of your Home”. This is a good tip for those planning to put their homes on the market.
According to experts, the key to attracting buyers and getting the most value from your home sale is to follow the theory of “What buyers can see vs. what they can’t see.” In other words, home sellers should make improvements starting from what buyers can see right away (such as flooring, landscaping, new paint) to what buyers can’t see (plumbing, electrical upgrades). That is, before investing in a new plumbing system for the house, change the floors. Most buyers won’t even ask how good the plumbing is if they notice a huge stain on the carpeting first. That first impression, the exterior, is what gets buyers into the door and interested.
