What do buyers prefer?

Asked by anon2014, Durham, NC Tue Sep 24, 2013

Wood stairs with no carpet or carpet?

Help the community by answering this question:


Carpet or No Carpet is a personal preference for a buyer. Buyers are looking for a house that is in great shape. So, if there is carpet, they like to see newer carpet or carpet that is not worn and filled with stains. Buyers look for Non Carpet Flooring to be in great shape. A top reason I see buyers look for houses with No Carpet is Allergy reasons.

Hope that helps.

It depends on many things. The rest of the house, the wood underneath, condition of wood, type of carpeting, runner or wall-to-wall, etc.

It would just depend on your home and choices of materials.

I work with buyers that love a cozy, warm carpet. Many others dislike carpet.

If your stairs look great without carpeting and you're not carpeting any other room, I'd say leave them alone.

My opinion, should you decide to accept it, is WOOD. Just as buyers today prefer wood floors instead of carpet. Often we hear comments on other peoples' choice of carpet or hear "what will it cost to replace the carpets with hardwood?".
