    Vinyl tiles most likely would be the most reasonable

    if you are thinking of selling, talk with a realtor the good ones want their pay quick, and will assist you in getting the place in shape to sell. my list included installing new carpet in the living room a brown neutral color. your realtor may just say clean it well and leave it.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I would definitely agree with Dfm, you should ask your realtor what the most sought after/desirable flooring for your area/target market. If you can afford it, hardwood(especially water proof is always a good idea.)

    We sold and bought in the last two years. Replacing carpet,flooring,or countertop may not be to buyers taste. We know. Just make sure the home is clean,uncluttered, and maybe give buyer an incentive ..or allowance to do their own thing. Fresh paint ,well done ,goes a long way to making things look better. Our sellers even put in new appliances..which are cheap, and on the low end. I would rather have been given a cash incentive to pick my own, now I am stuck with these. Ans I expect them to fall apart soon! So the same with kitchen flooring..I read recently where many of these changes dont really add too much value...however they may help it sell faster. Now,if you yourself are tired of the floor,that is another matter. You can always paint and seal it...and buy your self time! 🤗

    A clean house and a fresh coat of paint. Clean up outside as well. Let buyers do their own thing. Everyone has different taste and I believe you would be wasting your money trying to fix it up to someone else's liking.

    Four years ago we replaced our kitchen flooring with laminate flooring that looks like wood. It still looks like new, is easy to clean, and seems to be nearly indestructible. Much less expensive than wood and less maintenance. This was done by professionals. Since it is a solid roll of flooring, I couldn't have done this myself. For two years my friend thought it was wood until I pointed out that it Isn't.

    I would leave it since it is neutral, or I would put laminate or another floating floor on it. Be careful, some resilient flooring from before the mid 80's has asbestos underneath it, mine does. My only choice is to have it professionally abated (=$$$) or have a floating floor on it.

    Please leave the flooring alone. Not only for the reasons stated but...that vinyl is very old. It's possible it contains asbestos! You do not want to open THAT can of worms!
