Selling a house with crappy hardwood...
We are going to be putting our house on the market next year, and are trying to decide what to do with our floors. The house originally had refinished hardwood in the living room (which is still pretty good, only a few scratches), and carpet in the rest of the bedrooms, stairs, and hallways. The rest is linoleum. We had an awful cat and had to rip out all of the carpet. There are hardwoods everywhere the carpet was. The problem is that there is paint literally all over the floors from when a previous owner did the walls. And, the floors aren't in very great shape.
So basically, our dilemma is... Leave the floors and offer a carpet allowance or put in cheap carpet. We have 3 kids and 4 dogs so there is no way I'm putting carpet in anytime soon for it to possibly get ruined in any way.
Do you think people would be turned off by the iffy floors?
