I think it's always best to do the upgrade before trying to sell the house. Buyers won't want to deal with the hassle of it. Even if it might cost you a little more, it will help a lot in trying to sell your house. Good luck!... more
thanks for the responses. i was just curious specifically about the marlboro area. i've been hearing other communities such as rumson fair haven etc have been selling. and i know the marlboro market of $800k and lower is doing well. i just checked out homes listed for sales from 950k + and it seems like the homes on the MLS have been on the market a long time, some for 180 + days. as for supply and demand, if you have 20 + buyers come thru your house and there are about 15 comparable homes, and there are no offers made on any of the homes, what happened to these buyers? do they take a long time to make the decision? is interest rates rising causing the refrain? as real estate agents showing $1M homes do you screen these buyers to make sure the are qualified?... more
The good news is hardwood is like jeans, it pretty much goes with all colors. I think a shade in the realm of a light maple would work best.

Best of luck Steve,
