If you're thinking about putting your house up for sale and own an animal, head up, pets can really have a negative impact on your home’s resale value. A woman in Colorado estimates she has spent $25,000 to $30,000 on dog-related repairs and upgrades due to her three puppies. One home appraiser says she's visited homes before they’re listed and found chewed furniture, scratched floors and stinky carpets which hurts the value of the home. And another problem is that standard homeowners-insurance policies won’t cover damage to your house or personal property caused by your pet, so you either need to take the loss, or pay out of pocket to fix the damages. Look, we all love our furry friends (they are like family) but just make sure that you're maintaining your home for the future. Here's a video and how just pet odor alone could hurt you from potential buyers.
