Crofton Real Estate Q&A: Carpet or Hardwood Floors?

Q.  Should I refinish the hardwood floors in my Crofton home or recarpet?

Wood flooringA.  If you live in the Crawford section of “Old Crofton” in Crofton MD – the E’s, F’s, and D’s – beautiful hardwood flooring may be hiding under your carpet.  Rather than replace that carpet, consider exposing those floors.  I believe you will not only enjoy them yourself, but also experience a quicker sale and higher price when you put your home on the market.

We refinished the oak flooring on the main level of our previous home on Elwyn Avenue, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the results.  Yes, they had to be refinished due to damage from carpet strips around the edges, but we never regretted our decision to make the investment.

To this day, I’m pretty sure this home sold for $9,000 more than expected for one reason:  those beautiful hardwood floors! 

That’s my opinion from the perspective of a Crofton REALTORÒ, and this is what Debbie Gartner, President and Owner of Floor Coverings International in Westchester NY/ Stamford CT has to say on this topic: I have hardwood flooring underneath my carpet. Should I refinish the hardwood or recarpet?
