11 HOME FEATURES BUYERS WILL PAY EXTRA FOR

5. Hardwood floors> Percentage of home buyers willing to pay more: 54%
> Amount willing to pay extra: $2,080. 

Some 25% of buyers under the age of 35, and 28% of those between 35 and 54, considered hardwood floors “very important” when looking for a home. Only 17% of people ages 55 and up felt the same way. In previous generations, homes with carpets were considered better in order toconserve energy. 

Even today, older people are more likely to feel more comfortable with carpeting because the insulation makes the home a little bit warmer. 

But for younger people looking to have many guests at the house and for people with children, hardwood floors are desirable because they are easier to clean than carpets.
