Many people selling their homes are aware that numerous prospective homebuyers want to consider homes that are only move-in ready. That’s why they take great care to make their places look as best as possible for showings.

But then there are some sellers spruce who their places up nicely but only vacuum their worn-looking wall-to-wall carpets and areas rugs. They don’t want to pay to replace the carpets and rugs, or they think that the future owners will only end up taking up the carpeting because hardwood floors are so desirable. They’re wrong.

Potential buyers will consciously or unconsciously notice that flaw. That’s why you as a real estate agent should encourage your clients to pay a professional to steam-clean the carpets and rugs. Steam cleaning is the most expedient and efficient way to make carpets appear as unsoiled and sanitary as possible.

People who are actively or considering selling their home must know this:

  • Carpeting that looks and smells fresh is hugely alluring.

  • Even if the interior strikes a possible buyer’s fancy, the sight of dull carpeting might send them away forever.
