Realtors say hardwood flooring helps them sell homes more quickly and at a higher price. A marketable home is becoming increasingly important as the housing market – and the competition among sellers – heats up. Last month, the National Association of Realtors reported existing-home sales edged up in January, while home prices continue to rise steadily above year-ago levels.

Also, according to a 2011 national survey conducted by the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), 99 percent of real estate agents say that houses with hardwood floors are easier to sell. Of those surveyed, 90 percent believe homes with hardwood floors sell for more money and 82 percent say they sell faster.

“We’re entering home-buying and remodeling season, and homeowners are looking to take on projects that offer a lot of bang for their home improvement buck,” said Josh Altman, one of the top 10 realtors in the country and star of Bravo’s hit TV show, “Million Dollar Listing: L.A.” “Hardwood flooring is a smarter investment than carpet because it lasts a lifetime, never goes out of style and is extremely desirable to homebuyers. And you can install it yourself in a weekend.”

Hardwood flooring retailer Lumber Liquidators offers homeowners a wide range of flooring options that look great and can fit within their budget and DIY abilities. In fact, the company offers more than 340 flooring varieties, including solid and engineered hardwood, bamboo, cork, laminate and resilient vinyl.

Lumber Liquidators’ laminate flooring enables homeowners to get the look of hardwood for less, while many of its floors can be easily clicked together without glue or nails. Homeowners can also differentiate their floors – and houses – with Lumber Liquidators’ Bellawood brand of prefinished hardwood flooring, which features a certified 100-year transferable warranty.
