Have you seen soiled carpet from pets before? Let me share my personal winner from an inspection a long while ago. Carpet like this certainly lowers property value, but it’s also indicative that the pets surely rule the roost. The stains from urine and feces were dramatic throughout the house. The smell surprisingly was not all that bad, but I did feel nauseous afterward and took a shower when I got home. An investor purchased this ten-year old 3000 square foot home, cleaned things up, patched landscaping and installed some minor upgrades to re-list it nearly 20% above its previous selling price as a short sale in need of some love.
