New Floors Can Boost Your Chances of Selling Essex Houses

If you ever entered homes and saw stained carpet or flooring, you would not be keen to remove your shoes. Now, think of buyers encountering such floors. 

For buyers, the appropriate kind of flooring and its maintenance make a lot of difference. If your floor is not very clean, we are here to assist you with a few tips to fix the issue and make that sale. 


Does your home have hardwood floors?

You’re pretty lucky as buyers usually love hardwood floors. In fact, a few people will actually pay a little more for such floors. If a carpet covers your hardwood floors or is painted over, it is time to showcase the actual wood by making the required changes. Remove those carpets and start sanding. 

As of today, you have the option of renting large sanders as well as other tools. You can get to it yourself or recruit a professional. However, do note that hardwood floors in Essex homes usually exhibit a few scratches, dents, and uneven surfaces. If you do not possess adequate skills, it is always a good idea to recruit a professional.


Does your home have carpeting?

If there are no hardwood floors at your home, ensure that your carpeting is not stained, bright, or torn. If that is the case, lay a new carpet with high-quality carpet padding. Many buyers will touch the floor, so it is crucial to ensure that the carpet is actually very soft. 


Does your home have tiles?

While tiles look beautiful, they also showcase dust, grime, cracks, chips, and everything else. Ensure that the grout is clean and looks new. Make use of cleaners or a steam cleaner for eliminating stains.

As a worse case, we can digitally stage your home to showcase how your rooms could look with specific carpets, rugs and furniture. This can be a way to reduce costs for you now and still help buyers visualise how the property could look.
