Unless you know first-hand what was said, and to whom it was stated, you're really just guessing what may have been in the report.
Were you not represented by an agent in this transaction? Almost everything is negotiable, and it appears you had an opportunity to negotiate the terms of your sale. So if you didn't want to lower the price (for whatever reason) that's entirely your decision. Consult with your sales agent and ask for details. Many loans or mortgages require a finished floor covering, and exposed sub-floor may have been an issue at some point.
And while I'm no attorney, I imagine the die has been cast, and you already had your bite of the apple. And how much could one of carpeting even cost anyhow?
