Real estate agents in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Vancouver are routinely surveyed about the impact of wood flooring choices in new home and resale properties. In a survey commissioned by the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) , residential real estate agents confirmed homes and condominiums with wood floors sell faster and realize higher prices. In fact, realtors in major markets could guarantee, by a four-to-one margin, a home with wood floors would sell faster than a home with alternative flooring materials including carpet, tile, laminate or vinyl.
Flexible Hardwood Flooring Choices
Time and again, interior designers have confirmed wood flooring suits virtually every decorating style. Outside of the stain colour and finishing options, homeowners can select a wood species based on grain, texture, cut, and layout. Considered the chameleon of all flooring options, site finished wood floors are especially well-liked for the refinishing potential. After all, there will always be inevitable changes in décor and aesthetics.
