Wood flooring is an attractive feature in new homes A home for sale in Framingham, Massachusetts, combines traditional colonial charm with classic elegance. The multi-level abode boasts four bedrooms, new kitchen appliances and hardwood flooring.
"This home is beautifully maintained inside and out," realtor Lesley Harries told The MetroWest Daily News, evidenced by the house's crown molding and hardwood flooring. In fact, according to the news source, the floors are in pristine condition.
Homeowners thinking about selling their property may want to consider installing hardwood floors. The National Wood Flooring Association reports that 58 percent of real estate agents said that a house with wood floors would bring a higher asking price.
"There is a perception today that they don't build homes like they used to, so when people see hardwood floors instead of carpet-covered plywood, they feel the entire house was built with superior building materials," one agent told the organization.
Those who already have hardwood floors will want to take proper care of the elegant floor covering. Instead of letting furniture rest directly on the floor's surface, individuals may want to lay down a mat or place pads on the furniture's legs to protect against dents and scratches.
