Spears' sisters homes features hardwood flooring
Spears' sisters homes features hardwood flooring Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney's younger sister, is selling her home, as she is reportedly heading off to college. The three-bedroom house features large windows and hardwood flooring, while the property also boasts a horse barn and a workshop, CelebSlam.com reports.
The wood-beamed, open-plan living space is located in Liberty, Mississippi. Hopefully Jamie Lynn will have an easier time selling this property than her sister had when she put her Beverly Hills villa on the market.
According to the Huffington Post, Britney's home was originally listed at $7.8 million, in September 2008, but fell to $4.85 million over the next two years. Like Jamie Lynn's home, Britney's five-bedroom mansion also included hardwood flooring.
Hardwood flooring is an exceptionally attractive feature to homebuyers. LendingTree.com reports that new and refinished hardwood floors can increase a home's value by up to 10 percent, according to a survey of real estate agents across the country. The news source suggests installing mid- or light-colored oak or maple floors, as the fair finishes may appeal to potential buyers more than dark stains.
Homeowners who are selling their abode may want to consider refinishing or polishing their floors before their open house.
