It all depends...are there original hardwood floors under the carpet? If so, what is the condition of the floors? In which room was the carpet removed (ie: living room, rec room, bedrooms)? The reason I ask is that sometimes buyers prefer carpet in some rooms, but not every room.
The best advice is to have a local real estate agent come take a look at the house that is being prepared to sell. Every home is unique and every situation is unique...it's best to have someone come take a look and give you personalized advice rather than generic advice.
I work in the Men Falls area, and I'd be happy to answer any questions you have. Feel free to click on the blue "Contact Agent" link under my picture, or you can email/call me directly!
Have a great evening!
