How Much Does It Cost?

It is now much easier to determine how much a flooring project will cost with Enhance Floors & More's exclusive "Buy The Room" specials. Now until the end of July.

$699 buys three rooms of new carpet (three 10' x 12' rooms) installed including new pad, OR 100 square feet of porcelain tile (cement slab installation) OR a 30 square foot tumbled stone backsplash for your kitchen.

$799 gets you 200 square feet of kid and pet friendly laminate flooring installed in the room of your choice.

$1199 is the price you will pay for one 10' x 20' room of hardwood floors.

There are many great styles and colors to choose from at these super low prices, not just one or two colors. Many of the customization details to complete your installation details are also included. Save now with these "Buy The Room" sale prices.

Summer Is A Great Time To

Refinish your hardwood floors. During the process, there will be certain days and times that you cannot walk on the floors at all, so why not do this while you and your family are away on vacation? For some of us, school starts back in a little over four weeks, so now is the time to get your refinishing project scheduled.

Should I Fix Up My Home

We thought this was a great article written by Elizabeth Weintraub. She states that in today's market, fewer buyers want fixer upper houses, and those that do want a deal. Buyers who gravitate toward fixers are those who either don't qualify to buy a more expensive home or those who want to make a profit by fixing the house themselves.

Fixer-upper buyers will discount the price of the home to allow for the repairs plus, for the inconvenience, a bit more. Say, a home is worth $100,000 fixed up, but it needs a new roof. A new roof might cost $10,000. A buyer will most likely not offer $90,000 for this house. Otherwise, they could buy an identical home with a new roof for $100,000 and avoid the hassle.

A buyer for this type of home might offer $75,000, or even less. In this scenario, a seller would be smarter to pay for a new roof and sell the home for $100,000.

Moreover, many buyers will not buy a home that needs a new roof. They will worry the work involved will cost more than anticipated. Most buyers want a home that is in move-in condition. By not making repairs, you will limit the number of buyers who may be attracted to your home.

We are also hearing more and customers say that they do not want to spend the money upgrading the home and not get to enjoy it. Many of our clients who plan on putting their home on the market in the next few years are replacing their flooring now and stating that they plan on taking advantage of their investment. Our Design Consultants will help you select the right products that you will love now and that will help you later when it is time to sell your home.
