Make sure the old Debts are actually accurate and legitimate debts. Paying off an old debt could actually lower your score.

Hello,

We display property information on Trulia to provide consumers with transparent real estate information. We receive this information from public records gathered by a third-party data collector from your county. Our mission is to empower consumers with information and tools to make smart decisions about homes, real estate and mortgages. For this reason, we do not remove public record property information from Trulia.

Please don't hesitate to reach back out to me should you have any questions or if there is anything at all that I can assist with.

For future reference, you can feel free to contact us about this type of inquiry through our contact form here:

Karen Peyton answered:
Hopefully your son is working with a real estate professional. Assuming so, it is upon "their" advice he should rely! None of us have seen the carpet, know the price of the home relative to market conditions, or how long it's been for sale.

Unless your son purchased the home with the carpet within a fiber of its life, how bad can it be? Has he tried having it professionally cleaned? Cleaning is of course the least expensive option.

If indeed horrible, and given your price scenario ($5,000 price reduction vs. $3,500 carpet replacement) the numbers speak for themselves. Unfortunately there is no crystal ball to know what will happen next.

Depending on how much time your son has to move, "money" will soon take a back seat to urgency. What he doesn't want to do - is become desperate. To that end, he should make the best decisions he can in the moment. Hindsight is always 20/20 - but the objective is to look forward, not back.

Again, if listed, your agent's advice is the one that counts.

Wishing your son "Good Luck" for a quick sale!

K.
