Hey guys anyone know this one what flooring adds value to the homes overall value $$ threw out the home carpet or luxury vinyl plank (Lvp) have a newer larger home that currently has carpet and smells to

Bad from a dog so it needs to be replaced threw out the entire home what’s everyone thoughts thanks

I don't think either will add value, any more than just having a new floor would. Carpet will probably be cheaper it install but if you're keeping it, you run the risk of it having a similar issue in the future. People on here seem to love the LVP for rentals for the low maintenance and cleanliness. I will replace the carpet in mine with LVP when it needs to be replaced.
