As home sales in the Harrisburg PA area slowly but steadily increase, homeowners continue to look for ways to make their homes more attractive to sell. According to Lawrence Yun, NARʼs chief economist, we should expect 5.3 million existing-home sales this year, up since 4.9 million in 2010, with additional gains in 2012 to about 5.6 million.

Flooring has always proven to be high on the list for home resale value. Whether youʼre preparing your home for sale, or are just interested in making flooring updates for a more enjoyable space, here are a few reasons to consider tile flooring. According to, a top Interior Design and Architecture resource, flooring is the second amenity that home buyers are advised to look for.

Tile flooring is incredibly versatile. With a vast offering of colors and materials, tile flooring options are virtually endless. Additionally, tile is durable and offers easy maintenance, which is another reason why homeowners that are preparing to sell their home choose it. Itʼs attractive to a buyer for cosmetic reasons, but itʼs also durable enough for a large family, small children and pets.

Martinʼs Flooring offers numerous types of tile; granite, limestone, porcelain, ceramic, glass, mosaic, metal and much more. Each material offers its own special set of characteristics, so itʼs wise to consult with a flooring professional before selecting which tile to use. Furthermore, different types of tile work better for some rooms than others. For example, natural stone, such as granite or limestone, can make a beautiful impact in a bathroom setting, while ceramic works nicely in high volume areas like the kitchen or mudroom.
