There are many factors that can help you sell your home more quickly and efficiently. Attention to detail is important and colors that are neutral allow potential buyers to focus more on the home than on the homeowner’s decor. If your home has carpet colors that are outside the norm or that are particularly bright or have patterns specific to an age group or theme you should look into replacing them before attempting to sell your home. This is also true if your carpet is particularly dirty, old or beat up.
Replace your carpet with a neutral colored carpet. This includes beiges, off whites or tan colored carpets. These colors will take the focus off of your floors and draw the potential buyers’ sights up and around your house instead. Many may be turned off by carpets they feel they need to replace because that requires immediate attention before they begin their move.
Give your buyers the option of moving in immediately by putting in new carpets yourself.
Many potential buyers may also be concerned about old carpets or dark carpets that don’t easily show dirt. Concerns about allergies and the like can lead these buyers away from darker carpets that may conceal dirt or allergens.
Use a new and neutral color carpet as an incentive to a buyer. Giving potential buyers peace of mind, as little as it may be, shows your commitment to attention to detail and to the health and happiness of the future owner of your home.
When selecting a new carpet to add some added appeal to your home when selling, remember to pick a neutral color and style that complements the rest of your house and to let buyers know that the carpet is new.
