For someone who is in real estate, there is one thing I absolutely can’t stand to see, and really makes the appearance of the house. That is the flooring. Whether it be horrible choices for flooring, or cheap flooring, if your floor doesn’t look good, then your home won’t look good either. One of the worst though is neglected flooring though, I would almost prefer cheap flooring over that. A great example is a nice family home I viewed a few days ago. It was a beautiful home, and in mostly good condition, however there was one thing I noticed immediately, which is how dull the wood floors were. If I were to guess, I think the previous owners haven’t had floor stripping service or floor waxing service in a long time. Which is a shame, because it was such a beautiful home, although I have seen worse. One of the worst houses I ever saw was also a lovely home, 3 bedroom 2 bath, with a ton of big windows. When we walked inside, I thought it was odd to have dark brown carpeting, but I didn’t really think much of it. It wasn’t until we had a carpet cleaning business out and cleaning the carpet that we discovered the carpet was actually a light tan. Since the carpet cleaners couldn’t get all of the stains out, we had the commercial carpet cleaners completely remove and replace the carpet. I hate to think what those stains were. Anyways, the lesson here is if you want to make your house appealing, don’t neglect your floors!
