Selling a house sucks. And apparently now is not the time to be selling. Well too bad, I need to sell my house dammit! I don’t know whether to replace the carpet or not. The real estate agent and a couple of other people (whose opinions I respect) recommend replacing the carpet. I’m hesitant for a couple of reasons. First of all I am loathe to substitute my taste for someone elses. Who is to say that what I chose someone else will like. I know, go neutral and cheap. Well what I picked out is both. And if the house doesn’t sell in the next month or two we are thinking of renting it out. If we do that, we’d just rather have the existing carpets cleaned. I think they’ll look a lot nicer after we do that. So I’m just throwing this out into the universe and maybe an answer will drop itself in my lap … or not.
