How carpet can increasethe value of your home

Home Value Blog 1

It’s often said there are two kinds of home owners. For some, it may be all #homesweethome, but one day the challenge of selling the family home may arise. For others, doing away with their current address is ‘high priority’. Read on for our handy tips about how to increase the value of your property.

It’s no secret flooring is a sensory experience. Our eye is drawn to it as soon as we enter and we feel it underfoot throughout. In order to stand out to buyers, and from other homes they look at, great looking (and feeling) carpet is a must. If it isn’t well taken care of, this can lower the perceived value of the entire property in the mind of a new owner. If a renovation is on the cards, focus on these carpet areas…

SPARKLING CLEAN

New carpet will be fresh, clean and feel luxurious. It will even provide a ‘new’ smell for buyers, even if your home itself is on the older side. STAINMASTER® carpet is stain resistant and easy to clean, providing the perfect base for years to come. For maintenance, ensure it is vacuumed weekly and professionally cleaned every 18 months. Otherwise, professionally steam clean rooms right before the inspection.

TRUE COLOURS

Has your carpet faded? Does the existing flooring complement the aesthetic of the house? It might be time for a change. Good news, neutrals are always in style and won’t turn buyers away. Our STAINMASTER® SolarMax® carpet range is perfect for sunny rooms, as it is both durable and fade resistant.

HIT REFRESH

Refresh all carpet at the same time to ensure your interiors are balanced. Focus on high traffic areas including passageways which may show the most wear and tear. Give your floor some TLC and don’t delay re-carpeting. Good quality carpet like STAINMASTER® carpet should last upwards of a decade. Now there’s some peace of mind!

Renovating is about the return. There’s no use doing a halfhearted job when there is an opportunity to recoup double the amount spent renovating your house.
