If you're looking into home renovations you can make in your property to help improve the chances of securing a sale, give some consideration to the types of flooring the property has.
Changing the flooring is one of the best ways to give your home a fresh look. Two of the main choices, carpet or hardwood, each have their own benefits and drawbacks.
For example, hardwood floors are timeless and a classic option for many Australians today. Being a natural product, they contribute towards a sustainable household while making your home look clean and fresh.
Furthermore, you don't have to worry about stains as much as carpet, which could be a selling point for families with young children. Many allergens also live in carpet – making hardwood a better option for anyone susceptible to allergies.
On the other hand, carpets could be the better option for those taking their budget into account. Generally, having carpet put in is a cheaper option than having hardwood professionally installed.
Carpets are also easier to clean. Unlike hardwood, which shows all the dirt and grime from daily living, carpets can simply be vacuumed for a cleaner, crisper look.
There are a number of benefits for each, so it could pay to research property sales in your area by chatting with a local real estate agent about the more popular options.
