Having new carpeting, rather than a mix of new and old would be preferred by many.

Kind regards,

It all depends on what you want to do. Is the carpet dirty or stained? Do you think it would look nice with the carpet and wood together? Do you have the funds to change out the carpet? Go with your gut. It would be hard for anyone to advise you over the internet, especially if we have no idea of what the area looks like.

Best of luck,

Tom, you want to change a 5 year old carpet anyways.

Please let me know if you have any other real estate-related questions!

If you are not going to replace the carpet, you should still check underneath to make sure the underlay is not wet as that can harbor mold growth.

In five years, you'll want to replace that carpet anyway.
