As you get ready to sell your home, you may be looking around to see what you can do to make your home appeal to a larger buying pool. There are several things that will turn buyers off from your home. One of them happens to be the carpet. The carpet in your home can either help you sell your home or hinder the process. Dye Pro Carpet Dyeing & Restoration is here to talk about carpet and why it matters when you are selling your home.
Carpet Damage by Dogs, Pets, Sun Fading, Accidents & More
If there are any areas of your home that the carpet is showing signs of severe damage, it needs to be either repaired or replaced. Leaving damaged carpet will be an eyesore to home buyers. Sometimes carpet can be damaged due to sun fading or other sources of uneven color. In these instances, you don’t have to replace the carpet, but rather, can have them professionally dyed to restore their vibrant color. This is a much more cost effective solution than replacement.
Dated Carpet Color Trends
When your carpet screams 1970, it is time to look at some carpet replacements. Studies have shown that flooring is one of the first things that potential buyers will notice and it is also something they don’t want to have to replace when they are buying. If your carpet is a dated color or has a dated pattern throughout it, you may want to look into replacement.
Different Carpet in Adjoining Room
If your home has different carpet in each room of the house, it will be a turn off to buyers. When this happens, it will interrupt the flow of your home. In turn, this actually can make your home feel smaller than it is; even when you live in a larger home. Having one carpet that flows through the house is going to attract more buyers.
Ugly Carpet Colors
There are some carpet colors that most people don’t want in their house. Some that come to mind include orange, pink, blue or any other color that isn’t a strong neutral. Small spaces should never have dark colored carpet because this will only make the space appear smaller. If your carpet is the color of easter eggs, this should be changed as well. For lighter colors, you don’t have to replace the color to fix this problem. You can have them professionally dyed instead. This will save you money and is completely doable if you are looking for carpet that is darker than the current color is.
