Selling your home tip #4: Flooring

Flooring is a very important part of preparing your home for sale.  Buyers want a home that is move in ready and the flooring will reveal to them how well the home has been maintained.  Up-to-date flooring is one of the top selling features buyers are looking for.

Things to think about:

  • What condition is your carpet in?
  • What colour is the carpet?
  • What style is your carpet?  Cutpile or Berber?
  • Take into consideration the rooms that you are putting carpet in as this will help to determine what style you select.
  • If you need to replace your carpet, do you need to re-do every room?  If not, select something that will work with the rest of the carpet in the house
  • What style of vinyl flooring do you have?  Does it need to be replaced?
  • Do you have hardwood?  Does it need touched up or refinished?
  • Do you have hardwood under your carpet?

Make sure that your floors are clean (steam clean carpets and runners if possible) and repair any chipped or loose floor tiles or vinyl.
