Hi Michel -
Most buyers today prefer wood flooring over wall-to-wall carpeting. You will need to remove the old carpets, likely require some wood floor cleaning or polishing (and if there in bad condition, you may also have to refinish the floors) before you put your property on the market. As you will need to remove all your furniture from the room(s) anyway, take advantage of this work and de-clutter or remove most of the excess furniture and stuff in the room(s) too! This will help make the space look as large as possible - always a good thing for buyers! A clean, bright, tidy space with minimal furniture and fixtures always sells better! Let me know if you need any help!
