Here's the deal ... i own my home, and it needs some updating like painting, and freshening up. My issue is, I don't know if I'll stay here for a long while or rent it out and buy another place to live in. So would you suggest I put timber floorboards down, even if in 18 moths I might rent it out, or should I just re-carpet. I'm afraid renters might not look after my timber floors etc? Thanks for your ideas and suggestions!
