Cleaning your carpet is essential whether you are up-sizing or downsizing, it is important you maximize the sale of your home while avoiding it sitting on the market for too long. Adding a bedroom, replacing old flooring or renovating the kitchen and bathrooms are all proven to add value to a property. But if you haven’t thousands of dollars to invest, how do you add value and make your home more attractive to a potential buyer?
CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED CARPETS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
What do your carpets look and smell like? What might be a charming “lived-in” appearance and smell to you, will almost always put off buyers. While color schemes and design are a matter of personal taste, there is nothing more off-putting to a house hunter than dirty, smelly carpets (especially carpets that emit the smell of dog or cat urine!) Should I replace the carpet? This is not usually necessary, replacing carpets can be costly not to mention the upheaval while you are in the process of trying to sell your home.
By choosing to have your carpets professionally cleaned, you minimize disruption and save a lot of money. Do your carpets have any obvious stains or odors, or simply haven’t been cleaned in a long time? It then would be wise to get them professionally cleaned (especially if you have pets) and make any repairs made to them before putting your home on the market. Loose carpeting where your carpet looks wavy, tears, seams coming apart. The longer you have lived in your home, the more your senses will have adapted to the appearance and smell of your carpet and flooring. Potential buyers on the other hand will quickly pick up on any unsightly stains and odors.
Clean, fresh smelling carpets will project a positive first impression to buyers and if they don’t need to replace the carpets, that is one less cost that they will be concerned about when considering purchasing your home.
