Clean Carpets Sell Houses FACT
Whether you are renting or buying, moving into a new home is a stressful time. If you are selling your home to buy another one, you have double the stress, so how important are the condition of the carpets when you look for a ‘new’ place to live?
If you are selling up, it can seem like a waste of money to invest in a whole house professional carpet clean, when the Estate Agent demands fees for the Energy Performance Certificate, which may involve costs to get a Surveyor to assess the energy efficiency of your property, before you even open the front door.
https://www.epcregister.com/ An Energy Performance Certificate is required for properties when constructed, sold or let. The Energy Performance Certificate provides details on the energy performance of the property and what you can do to improve it.
You may decide to carpet clean your new house when you move in, but just how practical is that? When you get the keys, it’s a race to offload the removal van as fast as possible into your new place, and then you are surrounded by boxes for man days – if not weeks!
So when will you clean the carpets?
Once the boxes are unpacked, it becomes another difficult job to move furniture AGAIN to have all the carpets cleaned.
Trying to sell a property is no easy task, and sparkling clean, unstained carpets will always make any property look easier to move into, and therefore easier to sell. It is one less job for the buyer to worry about and can put you leagues ahead of the other properties they have looked at.
Why not add the cost of it onto the price of the house? It may seem insignificant, but if you feel that your investment has been repaid once you sell, then it becomes a win win situation.
