    I kind of agree with this, but I am no real estate guru or a fashionista! Wooden floors would look lovely, but it would probably be more expensive.

    Perhaps you could try to get attention from all the real estate people in here. They might be able to give you some great advice!

    Don't go textured, they are impossible to keep clean, dirt gets lodged in the grooves of the texture ... I'll never go that way again.

    we are renting a house at the moment and it has large areas of glossy tiles.....i cant tell you how much i HATE them!!!

    we are also building our own house and after living with glossy tiles for 12mths no way there will be a glossy tile in the new house unless of course they come with their own live in housekeeper

    I think glossy tiles are really easy to clean. But textured tiles are very hard to clean and after few months these tiles looks dirty and old. Glossy ones look nice even after years. But choice is yours dear...!!!

    IMHO gloss shows all the marks, scuffs and dirt.

    At your open inspections it will likely show traces of people who have been through pending on the weather etc

    I'd go with floating floorboards (bamboo). They can use underlay &/or sheeting (I think this is what it's called) to level out the different floor heights. You might need to keep tiles in the laundry though (wet area).
