Selling your home is a very involved process. The decision to sell, itself, is a big decision. Then you begin to calculate your selling expenses, search for a real estate agent, determine your home’s value, and promote it through listings. 

Through the process, you might also be considering ways to increase your home’s value. This could include making necessary repairs, remodeling, or replacing your floors. At Quest, here are a few flooring options we think you should consider if you want to maximize your home’s value!

Waterproof Flooring

For areas of the home where water might find its way onto the floor, like bathrooms or kitchens, waterproof flooring is an excellent, practical solution. Waterproof options can offer the homebuyer some solace and the knowledge that the floors are prepped for potential accidents or stains. Waterproof flooring also comes in plenty of patterns and designs, so no matter how your home is decorated, you can find a solution that matches. 

Laminate Flooring

If you want to set the tone of hardwood or tile flooring, but want a more affordable option, consider laminate flooring. Laminate floors are designed to look like other materials, so you can create the ambiance you’re looking for. They’re also easy to install, maintain, and replace. Laminate flooring, however, can be susceptible to moisture warping and dents--something you will need to keep in mind when making the decision. 

Luxury Vinyl

If the name didn’t give it away, Luxury Vinyl floors are incredibly desirable in new homes. Luxury vinyl floors are much thicker than their standard counterparts, with six to eight layers of material, and a clear layer to protect the design. Standard vinyl floors can last 10 to 15 years, while the luxury options can last anywhere from 15 to 25, so if you put yourself in the mind of the homebuyer, luxury vinyl can last for much of the typical 30-year mortgage.

Don’t forget about the carpet!

It’s a simple fact. Over time, carpets get ruffled, matted, stained, and worn. Consider how that might look to a prospective buyer. If you think it’s time to update your carpet, Quest providers a number of great options. Neutral colors offer versatility and polyester-based carpets have been shown to provide the best value, but don’t limit yourself if you think you’ve found the right option for your space.
