Sometimes sellers ask if they should offer an allowance for the buyer to replace the carpet. Their carpet is dated and worn out, and the seller is reluctant to choose a new carpet for the buyer.
I do not think that offering an allowance is a good idea, for this reason: If you are going to pay for new carpet, then get it done and enjoy the improvement in overall appeal of your home. New carpet can simply transform a house. It makes everything else look better. Don't worry about choosing the carpet. Just choose a neutral beige shade. That will be fine for most buyers.
You will benefit from the updated, clean look that new carpet will bring to your home.
We look forward to working with you!
