Should I Replace My Carpet to Sell My House?

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT] Hey, everybody. My name is Jason Patton. I'm a partner and the listing specialist here at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, and I wanted to take a second to talk to you about carpet.

So one of the questions that comes up time and time again when we're on a listing consultation is, "Hey, you see our carpet over there? Should we replace that?" And that's a great question. And for the sake of this video, I wish that I had a boilerplate answer for you, but the truth of the matter is it just depends.

So if your carpet was installed in 1974 and it's hunter green and THAT THICK, you're probably going to need to replace your carpet. Or if you own six dogs and a goat and they spend the majority of their time indoors, you're probably going to have to replace your carpet.

Replacing Your Carpet Can Maximize Your Sale Price

Replacing your carpet is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to maximize the sale price of your home. But, that being said, it's not always necessary. If it's in relatively good shape and it doesn't stink, just have it professionally cleaned. Or if you don't want to mess with it at all, then just offer the buyer a carpet allowance
