I live in Oakwood, Ohio surrounded by 50+ year old colonials and swiss chalets. Many of these 1950's era homes still sport the decor of yesterday, so the homes are priced relatively low making them a great deal for investors willing to put in some elbow work as designers!
In this investors opinion the best way to update a home is flooring (next to updating the kitchen). In older homes hardwood floors can usually be found under carpeting. By simply sanding and varnishing the hardwood flooring can be easily restored. Although it is not traditional, cork flooring is an eco-friendly option. Vinyl flooring is durable. My favorite flooring option is the newest trend - frize carpet. For those of you who don't know, frize carpet is a semi-shag carpet that is heavenly soft. The sellers at my listing located at 6420 Shirecliff Court in Centerville just updated their living room with frize carpet and we've received rave reviews!
What do you think is the best way to update a dated home?
