Listing your home can be a nerve-wracking process. You want to get the most money possible for your home, but you also don’t want to waste money on making improvements to a home you’re leaving. Does this scenario sound familiar? While it might feel counterintuitive, spending a little money upfront can actually help your home sell faster and for a better price– and the best place to start is at the bottom. Here at Royal Cleaning and Property Maintenance, we have 3 good reasons why you need to clean your carpets before you list your home for sale.
- Aesthetics- The average home tour takes less than an hour. While your home might have wonderful features, new paint, or fabulous built-ins, potential buyers won’t notice any of that if you have dirty or stained carpet. Professional carpet cleaning enhances the aesthetics of your home!
- Smells- Carpets are magnets for smells of all kinds. If you have pets, children, or just cook with a lot of garlic, your carpets might have some lingering smells that would be less than desirable for potential buyers.
- Money-saving- Carpets are something that buyers are picky about. If they’re dirty or stained, they might request a lower price, ask for new carpet, or pass on your home altogether. A professional carpet cleaning can do wonders for your carpet and will be much less expensive than carpet replacement.
If you’re thinking about selling your home in the near future, don’t forget to schedule a professional carpet cleaning before you start showing your home. At Royal Cleaning, we would be happy to help with all your carpet cleaning needs. Just give us a call today.
