Getting Top Dollar for Your House - Part 4
Paint & Carpet Factor
Paint is your best improvement investment for getting a greater return on your money. Paint makes the whole house smell clean and neat. If your house has chipped paint, exposed wood, or the paint looks faded, it is time to paint.
If your carpet is worn, dirty, outdated, or an unusual color, you may need to seriously consider replacing it. Many houses do not sell because of this problem.
Don't think that buyers have more money than you have to replace carpet. They don't. They simply buy elsewhere.
Your Realtor can help you decide what your best marketing plan will be.
