Whether you’re going larger or downsizing, it’s important to get the most you can for your home without leaving it to languish on the market for too long.
Renovating kitchens and bathrooms, converting a garage, replacing old flooring throughout are all ways of adding value to your home but if you don’t have thousands of dollars in the bank what can you do to make your home more appealing to prospective buyers?
Clean carpets can close or break a deal
While you’ve probably got used to the ‘lived-in’ appearance and slightly pungent smell of your carpets, it most certainly can put buyers off. Although design and color schemes are a matter of personal taste, there is nothing more likely to send buyers running for the hills than carpets which are dirty and smelly, particularly if the smell is one of pet urine.
If they’ve seen better days, is it really necessary to replace them?
Most times we’d say probably not. New carpeting can set you back hundreds of dollars and cause a lot of upheavals too if potential buyers want to come and view your home. By choosing instead to have your carpets professionally cleaned, not only will it save you money in your wallet, but it will avoid disrupting the household too.
Do your carpets need cleaning?
If your carpets haven’t been cleaned in a long time and there are a few obvious stains on them, then it makes sense to have then cleaned before putting your house up for sale.
The longer you live in a house the more your senses get accustomed to smells permeating from your carpet and looks which have faded, but trust us, potential buyers will soon pick up on these things.
Carpets that appear clean and fresh create a great first impression to buyers and give all the signs that your home has been well maintained and cared for. It also helps for them to know that they won’t have to purchase new carpets, unless of course they want to, and gives them one less thing to worry about in the purchasing decision. If your neighbor is selling the same style home and has clean carpets then they’re likely to choose that one over yours.
