SELLING YOUR HOME - There is little doubt that the listing that has fresh paint, clean windows and updated fixtures draws more interest from buyers and usually sells for a higher price. While you generally do not get all the money back from this type of renovation, there certainly is some value in getting your home sold without a tedious string of Days on Market. One area that is often over looked is upgraded flooring. While most home owners would think first of new carpet or hardwood flooring there is an alternative. Realty Times, a trade publication, has an interesting article about vinyl flooring that might just change your perception of the product. CLICK HERE to read the article.
