This is a long story but I'll make it as short as possible... I'm selling a house.. already moved into another.. I went about things all wrong.. I had a friend staying with me at old house for about a month before I moved... he and his wife brought their cat... and the house began smelling like a litterbox... it wasn't a strong smell (to me anyway). So I listed the house anyway.. we had a ton of buzz over the first month.. 36 showings.. all complained of smell.. only one super lowball offer came in.. all the while i was making trips to the house to try and remedy the situation.. moping floor/rug doctor etc.. the whole first floor smelled so I wasnt sure where problem was.. now 45 days in I have located the problem and I am replacing the carpet/subfloor in damaged room.. problem is.. we have wasted so much traffic and time.. we are down from 5-6 showings a week to 0-1.... once the floor is fixed and smell is gone.. will I be able to get anywhere close to that much traffic back in without a big price cut? I know I could ask my realtor these things.. just wanted to reach a larger audience.
