How many of you have offered a flooring allowance? Or did you chose instead to lower to price of your home to reflect that it needs new flooring? Do you offer full cost or just some percentage? Did it work out okay for you? Did you ever buy a house that came with an allowance?
After a two approx. $2,000 quotes to replace carpet in two bedrooms and one hallway, I'm wondering if it just might be better to leave the old stuff here and offer an allowance. Master bedroom suite carpet is heavily stained, the other carpets are old multi-blue short shag (wearing out, but more outdated than in bad shape). All other flooring is tile.
This is for a mid-priced home...mostly updated except for floors, so someone could move in and not have to do much except hire someone to install whatever flooring they want. We're in a good market, I don't expect any trouble selling as long as we set the price right.
Our agent will be here this afternoon to offer his opinion but I also want to know yours.
