When Purchasing Carpet in Fort Myers, Buy the Carpet You Need – Don’t Overspend

This is the first installment of 12 Things to Know About Buying Carpet which can also be downloaded as a free eBook.

Before you even step foot in a carpet and flooring store, you should take a moment to review your personal financial situation. Are you working with a tight budget and need inexpensive carpet, or are you ready to splurge?

Even if you have plenty of cash on hand, sometimes it won’t make sense to overspend on carpet in Fort Myers. Here are four common scenarios where you want to be careful not to pay too much for a fancy carpet:

  1. You need to update your floors to help sell your home.
    If your flooring is in bad shape, it can make sense to invest a little money in updating the carpet to help get it sold more quickly. But there’s no reason to go overboard. Even a inexpensive carpet will freshen the look of your home enough to impress most buyers.
  2. You have a modest home                                                                                          …which has other areas that need more attention. Let’s face it – there are some homes that just don’t need the “Rolls Royce” of carpet. If a standard option will work for you, then you can put the extra money into making other improvements to your home.
  3. You aren’t going to stay more than 3 years.
    Even if you aren’t planning to sell your home immediately, it’s good to think ahead. If a move might be in your near future, don’t throw down a lot of cash to get a premium carpet that you can’t take with you when you go.
  4. You own a rental property.12 Things to Know About Buying Carpet
