Does 'green' flooring make a difference in resale?
Hi everybody -
We are getting ready to re-do the flooring in our house. Going from stained, scored concrete to some type of wood in the LR, DR, Kitchen,halls & carpet in bedrooms and tile in the baths. We want to keep re-sale in mind & are wondering what your opinions are on "green".
Would it make sense to look at quality bamboo flooring & will that make a difference (pro or con) in re-sale? There is some stranded bamboo that looks great - nice dark colors & less visible nodes.
Also, what about kitchen counter tops? Any interesting & cost effective materials that would be a good selling point later? I know people are starting to say granite is over + there are now the radon & radiation issues with some stones. However most of the houses in this market seem to have granite.
We have to keep budget in mind too, since there's probably not a whole lot of room for re-coupable upgrades. Our area did not have a big housing bubble & has stayed relatively level on pricing.
Appreciate any feedback!
