The Carpet Cleaners Helped Sell My Condo

I had a really nice condo in Fort Lauderdale but because of health issues with my elderly mother, I had to sell it so I could take care of her. In my family, assisted living facilities or nursing homes are not an option for older family members. Besides, my mother wanted to stay in her own home, and the doctors agreed that this would be the best thing for her. In all honesty, it didn’t make any sense for me to maintain the bills at my Fort Lauderdale condo when I knew I couldn’t stay there. I contacted a local realtor and they did an evaluation of my home.

I never knew that there were so many things that needed to be done before selling a home. The realtor came in and for lack of a better word, picked my home apart. She went through it and made all kinds of marks on a paper on her clipboard. All along, I thought she was writing down room sizes and colors. In reality, she made a list of things that I needed to do before she could bring any potential buyers to my condo!

Carpet Cleaning in Fort Lauderdale

The realtor explained that I had to get all of the clutter out of the home. I don’t know that I would consider knick knacks clutter, but that was easy enough to do. I also had to remove anything personal. So, all of the family pictures had to go. The realtor even had me repaint the walls and specified a neutral color. Now, I am not a neutral tone kind of gal. My walls were blue and orange and the living room had a red wall as a point of interest. All of my friends liked the colors I had but again, I needed to sell the Fort Lauderdale condo. I bought the paint, repainted the walls and even refreshed the ceilings. The final thing on my list was getting the carpets cleaned. I tried the foam carpet cleaners that I purchased from the Publix in Fort Lauderdale. That was a complete waste of time and money. The realtor came in and told me that this was unacceptable. She suggested that I call Absolute Best Carpet Cleaners in Fort Lauderdale to professionally clean the carpets. I did and that was the best thing ever. They showed up on time and knew what they were doing. There was actually a small red wine stain that had been in the carpeting for like 2 years and they got it out. With a single carpet cleaning, the carpet in my condo in Fort Lauderdale looked like new and smelled great. In less than a month, I had a viable offer on the condo. That couple in particular commented on how lovely the carpeting was in the condo. If you are selling a home in Fort Lauderdale, call Absolute Best Carpet Cleaners and believe me; you will see a difference in the potential buyer’s comments.
