pine floors problem needing creative solution


We need a 'quick fix' to get ready to sell our house.
We have a 4 yr old house with pine plank floors that were polyurethaned (unstained). They now look like this:
What can we do to fix these divots/scratches/dents and greyed wood (that happened from water getting on exposed pine) without sanding the entire main floor of the house? We are concerned that sanding just the affected areas will result in much lighter boards.

There is no quick fix for that one, there long over due to be sanded and sealed.

Four year old house?You may have bought the house four year ago?That is rust from the nails where the floor was face nailed.You can set the nails with a nail set and fill the holes but the only way you can fix that floor is with a total sand and refinish.

I would just compensate the buyer at closing for refinishing the floor. It is much easier and faster to refinish in an empty house and the buyer can have it done before he moves in. There is no easy fix for this .
