According to One Project Closer, hardwood floors are definitely a great investment "Hardwoods Add Appeal… and That Adds Value. Woodfloors.org (the Hardwood Flooring Association of America) reports that 90% of real estate agents surveyed indicated that hardwoods made a house sell faster or at a premium price. While real estate agents aren’t appraisers, if 90% of them believe wood floors are a significant factor in house buying, we think that says a lot. Plus, a faster sale means more money into the pocket of a seller faster. That’s real money into the seller’s bank account earning interest."
