The Garage Office Realtor, Jim Miner, says Selling a Home with 2 kinds of Carpet in the same room is a bad idea. I was out previewing homes in South Scottsdale the other day and I visited a home that was updated and for sale. When I walked into the home, the first thing I noticed was new carpet had been installed. The carpet was neutral in color and it went with the interior color scheme. The room I was in was the living room, so I walked around to the other side of the fireplace into the family room and there it was, new carpet. However, it was a different kind and color of carpet.
The owners made a good decision to replace the old carpet with new carpet but then they made a very poor decision when they had two different kinds of carpet installed. A very awkward interior design was created on the floor where the carpet from the family room joined with the carpet from the living room, in short it completely negated the flooring upgrade by the sellers.
When one gets ready to sell their home, I highly advise them to seek out the advice of the Realtor who will represent them and inquire as to what is the appropriate action to take and if the action is necessary. The action in this case was the installation of new carpet.
The Garage Office Realtor from South Scottsdale has some sound advice; when installing new flooring in a home make sure there are no more than 3 kinds of flooring, keep in mind if you install blue carpet and brown carpet that would be considered to be 2 different types of flooring. Never have 2 different kinds or colors of carpet juxtaposition to each other.
