The excitement is definitely building as we await our TWO Ontario home shows. We’re putting the finishing touches on our National Home Show in Toronto and our Ottawa Home & Garden Show, both proudly presented by RE/MAX.

With RE/MAX on our side, we’ve been given access to some fantastic tips on both buying and selling homes! Today, we’re hitting the floors, as RE/MAX shares with us why flooring, can be very important.

Flooring: Why It’s Important When Selling

  • When it comes to flooring, always consider the following:
  • The flooring reveals to potential buyers how well a home has been maintained
  • Flooring is a top feature that buyers look for, invest in your flooring before putting your house on the market
  • Consult with your RE/MAX agent on whether or not your carpet should be replaced or cleaned
  • If there is hardwood under your carpet, consider exposing it as a selling feature
  • If your floors are dated, worn, stained, or damaged, take the initiative to replace them and you be able to showcase a well-maintained home!
