You may have heard that you can get a better price for your home when it comes time to sell if you have hardwood floors, and no, it's not a rumor!

In years past, home buyers tended to believe that hardwood flooring was an option only for buyers in the market for a luxury property. But today, the vast majority of buyers who desire hardwood floors are looking for a moderately priced home.

As for how many homebuyers prefer a home with engineered or solid hardwood flooring, the National Association of Home Builders' "What Home Buyers Really Want" survey puts that figure around 80-percent.

It's wise to think about the high demand for homes that feature wood floors, whether a home sale is in your immediate or distant future.
