Hardwood floor is one of the features that will remain in the property for the next family to enjoy.

Another reason is people want move in ready property. While they may be able to install the wood flooring later on their own, it is much easier to move in without renovation and delay. The amount of time and energy it takes to install or refinish hardwood correctly can deter buyers.
