While staging your home for home buyers, new carpet is a smart investment. It finishes the home and makes a huge difference in how much buyers are willing to pay. In the industry, we say that it will give you a higher “return on your investment” (ROI) when you sell your home. Even though you might think that people will just want to replace the carpet when they move in anyway, carpet does matter. Soiled, stained, or worn carpet gives off an enormously negative impression. It could easily cause your home to sit on the market longer. Carpet’s also great because it’s cheaper than many other flooring options that also impresses home buyers.
So, What Type Works Best?
Make sure the carpet you choose isn’t too cheap. If you go with a low-end carpet, the home buyer will notice and wonder what other ways you cut costs. That’s not to say you need to buy a high-end carpet either though. Often, adding padding to less expensive carpet can make it feel more luxurious. They will also realize that the good padding can save them money when they do choose to re-carpet down the road.
Textured saxonies usually look richer than they cost and are often generic enough that you wouldn’t be dictating the design of the home for the future buyers. A BCF fiber will provide a bulkier, more high-end look and feel. If most of the finishes in your house are very smooth and polished, consider a long-pile frieze, because it will add texture and a homier feeling. Sisal and Berber offer a textured, neutral look as well, but again, make sure to choose colors that could suit almost any decor.
