Too much pergo?

We're selling our home and the people who viewed it today said there was "too much pergo." It's a 2-story townhome with pergo in the living room, stairs on the carpet, and then pergo all throughout upstairs. I think it's much nicer and cleaner than carpet, but is it really a bad thing to have when selling?

  • not at all!! actually the best thing in resale values are wood floors, be it pergo or real wood or laminate. That was probably just not their taste. if you are still having this problem with more people (which i highly doubt you will) try getting a large area rug to break up the floors a bit. but honestly it was probably just not their particular taste

  • It's just a personal taste thing, I think. Like me, personally, I love hardwood floors, but I wouldn't want them in my bedroom or living room, b/c I like the carpet. Some people like hardwood, some like carpet, some tile. It's all a matter of personal preference.

  • I agree with the other poster. We have the original hardwood floors all through our house, not an inch of carpet. Tile is in the "wet areas" like bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room. Everyone has different tastes though. If you see more responses like that, try an area rug like the above post says.

  • Wood floors are the best. Someone with pets and kids will be thankful. Carpet can be easily laid over and wood - even underneath carpet -always increases house value. Are you sure they weren't just trying to lower the cost?

  • I would LOVE to have that! I think the buyers just didn't like it. But usually pergo increases value.
