Hello!

We are putting a house in Alabama up for sale. The current carpet is horrible and needs to be replaced. I am asking you Southerners what would be better for resale---replace with a neutral carpet or laminate or offfer flooring allowance? Thanks --24.233.xxx.xx

Either replace it with laminate or give an allowance - sell it as something special : "pick your own customized floor color!".

Even better, tell them you will have it installed for them before closing so they are not scared off by needing to do work. Let them pick between 2 or 3 colors of a flooring you like / can afford for the amount of the $ concession. --68.229.xxx.xxx

selling without flooring is like showing a house for rent that has no carpet or floor covering.

People insist they can look past it and imagine but they can't. --99.103.xxx.xxx

Each area has it's own things that are expected. I'd suggest contacting a real estate agent in the area that sells houses like yours. Ask them what they recommend to get the fastest, best price sale. They sell in the area all the time and they should know what average people buying in the area expect and what buyers do not want.

Consider following their advice. --75.7.xx.xx

Melinda,

I would go with a builder's grade carpet. Most southerners still love carpet especially when it is brand new and has that brand new carpet aroma. Plus, carpet is easy to remove if the buyers want to replace it later with something else. --71.207.xxx.x

Hardwood and tile are the flooring choices that people want.

Think of a woman in her 20ís, that is your buyer, Carpet is hated.

Carpet allowance is out of step for todayís house buyers.(boomers used to do that, but they arenít your buyers).

Laminate is not a good product, most buyers know it, and it cost nearly as much as hardwood. Itís appeal is that an unskilled do it yourself er can install. Your buyers boomer dad had a crappy laminate floor, and his kids will never have it in their house. This is a bad choice.

Hardwood and tile.

If the house is located in a Class A neighborhood, then yes on Hardwood and Tile. In Class B or lower, I would play it safe and still go with carpet. --71.207.xxx.x

Hardwood and are the safe bet. People hate carpet, she needs to sell the house. Someone needs to love the way the house looks. People hate carpet.

Ergo, it would be risky to install hated carpet into a house and try to sell it. --149.76.xxx.xxx

Sisco,

Hardwood and tile are the expensive options here and she is the selling the house. There is no guarantee the high cost of hardwood and tile (with installation) will be recouped in the sale of the house. With Class A, the recoup answer is 'maybe' but with Class B or lower, carpet is the safe bet.

People may hate carpet in MO, but down here in conservative AL, true southerners who eat grits and worship Nick Sabin, still love carpet. --71.207.xxx.x
