Why do people love wood floors?

Step onto any wood floor and you’ll appreciate the warm and inviting tones and colors. As one of the world’s most versatile floor coverings not only do you get traditional beauty but also practical advantages:

  • Looks great and that great look endures;
  • Hardwood resists stains, including wine and food;
  • Wood is warm to the touch;
  • Wood floors are easier on your feet and knees than concretes and ceramics;
  • Wood flors are easy to clean;
  • Real wood floors are fully restorable;
  • Hygienic and dust free, especially good for allergy sufferers.

5 Signs a Home Has Potential

CheckThe best deals on homes are often on properties that aren’t perfect, but how do you spot a home with potential?  These are the 5 factors we’ve found:
Home shoppers looking for a great deal should keep these factors in mind when they are looking for a place with potential:

  1. Location, location, location. You can fix a home’s condition, but you can never change it’s location..
  2. Less than 50 years old. Properties older than a half century are likely to have more fundamental problems — like aging wiring, inadequate plumbing and sagging foundations. But when examining a home take care to note the difference between a home’s actual age and it’s age since it was refurbished or renewed.  You may  find that a home in Old Town Alexandria which was built in the 19th Century is “newer” than a home built in 1990 in Kingstowne.
  3. Livable floor plan. Paint and carpet are relatively cheap, but moving walls can quickly get expensive.
  4. Light. Houses with the most potential have plenty of natural light.
  5. Good storage. Adding storage isn’t cheap, so it’s smart to choose a property that already has it.
