Regional Differences in Finishes | Lakewood Ranch Buyers Agent | David Barr Realtor

Over the weekend I toured resale homes and new construction homes with vinyl plank and engineered hardwood flooring throughout.

Those finishes are great for homes up north with floors above grade, but in FL, those choices placed over a cement slab that wicks moisture, even if they are supposedly waterproof, are not the material of choice.

One home in Lakewood Ranch in The Country Club with this type of flooring sat on the market for over 2 years until there was a radical price reduction. Another in Venice in Grand Palm is still on the market for almost a year with this type of flooring.

Vinyl plank or engineered hardwood floors aren't the best choice for a FL new home

Regional tastes and preferences are just another reason you need your own Realtor working for you when you're buying a new home in Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, or Venice FL and The West Villages.
