Laminates MAY decrease value of homes. especially cheap laminate the sound like plastic when you walk on them.

High quality hard wood prefinished floors or truthfully REAL HARD WOOD would be the preferred flooring.

now just replace carpet and wood flooring does not always mean MORE value. In most cases it is bring the home UP TO market expectations.

a few other questions:

What is the sq ft of this home?

bedroom numbers
FULL and 1/2 bath numbers
Lot size

you say up UPGRADED the kitchen to granite, but how are the cabinets?

bath Cabinets?

if the cabinets are the original 1995 or NEW?

cant really put granite over the original kitchen cabinets.

if the comps are 215-260K and your house is of similar quality then that is what it will sell for.

IMO I have been rehabing and selling these homes for 20 years. The goal is ALWAYS bring the home UP TO market expectations, ( comps ) then sell for a little less for a quick sale.

Good Luck
