Claudia Jacobs Staging Tips : Carpeting

Jul 15th, 2014 | By | Category: Lifestyle

Old, dirty, warn out carpeting can be a huge deterrent when trying to sell a house.  During a staging consultation, I mentioned replacing the carpeting in the entry, hallway and living room of the home. It was a dirty, stained, beige color and it was blah. The house was perfectly fine except for this issue. The house was taken off the market with no offers.

When the house went back on the market, the sellers had new carpeting installed. Guess what? It sold! They just moved into their new home.

Bottom line: The cost of staging is less than the first price reduction. Something like investing in new carpeting can make all the difference.

If your home is on the market without any offers, it is time to access why it is not appealing to buyers. It needs to be priced right too.
