If you are selling a condo in Santa Clara in the next few months you will probably have a lot of activity with many buyers interested in the Santa Clara Condo you are selling. In order to get the best price and terms for your Santa Clara condo you should make it look as good as possible.

If the carpets in Santa Clara condo you are selling are in bad condition or smell, you will probably get a better offer if you change the carpet. Nothing turns off buyers more than dirty smelly floors. Many condos do allow laminate flooring if the condo has anyone below, so if that is the case with the Santa Clara condo you are selling then you should replace the carpet. If you are allowed to have a laminate floor, I would highly recommend it. Buyers love laminate/wood floors and they are worth more than the cost to install if you are allowed.

If you need to stick with carpet because of either HOA rules or costs, then you are left with the decision about what type of carpet and what color.  In my experience the color of the carpet in the Santa Clara condo you are selling is much more important than the type of carpet. I would recommend that you go with a darker carpet and lighter paint on the walls. However, you could also consider a lighter carpet with a few walls that are darker for accents for the Santa Clara condo you are selling

Short pile patterned carpets are very popular right now and give a more modern look, but if cost is a factor when selling your Santa Clara condo you can go with an inexpensive plush carpet in the right color.

So remember when you are selling a Santa Clara condo don't put it on the market with a dirty smelly carpet. If you can put in laminate that is ideal. If not get a new carpet that is darker with light painted walls, or lighter if there are some darker walls for accent.

I have a condo association that wil not allow any hard surfaces except in bathrooms and kitchen.Needless to say, it is tough to sell.  The rest of the condo is fantastic but carpeting in Naples FL can get moldy. It has been brought up to the Board and they are just stubborn and to not see the changing tastes of buyers.

Marcia, I can see how that would be a huge issue in Fla. Are there any carpet suppliers who sell mold resistant carpets?
