we own a high end waterfront condominium and plan to sell it in spring of 2020. it has an upscale kitchen and baths but will need new carpet before going on the market.

my wife and i have a difference of opinion on the replacement of the flooring. we are in agreement on carpeting the bedrooms and living room, however one of us wants to put down different flooring from the entry, down the hall and into the dining area. we agree that this would be attractive, but disagree what level of flooring it would require and whether we would get payback.

plank vinyl would be about the same price as carpet but at the price range it is in, one of us thinks a real oak floor would make the unit more saleable and bring it in at a better price. is any vinyl plank good enough to enhance the sale and price?

the questions are would a wooden oak floor pay us back? Would vinyl plank be as attractive at a lower cost? should we fall back on carpet for the whole unit as it presently is.

one other question is should it be staged? it looks great and larger than 1200 feet when empty. the waterfront view is also very impressive when the unit is devoid of furniture.

Few consumers notice the difference between real wood and vinyl plank. Most agents don't know the difference either. The high end units around here are using vinyl plank.

The staging fad has not reached our market so i can not advise on it's value but you want to be sure to hightlight the view. If your furniture is diminishing the view, rearrange or remove some furniture.

Views sell. We just put a worn out, outdated, run down house under contract and the buyer is overlooking all that because of the view. Views sell.

thanks for your perspective.

what is your opinion on whether to recarpet the whole unit or put plank in the hall and dining area. carpet is easier, but plank has had such popularity that we are debating what to do as a update.

I would plank the hallways and living/dining area. Carpet in bedrooms.
