Best wishes ghost!
It has been very stressful for us as well. Thankfully, the tenants will be out in a few days.
We have decided to pull out all of the carpet and replace it with laminate. It's not in bad shape, but people just don't want it these days. We are also going to replace 5 of the old windows. Even if I do everything myself, I figure it will set me back about 4k. Luckily, Costco has some amazing laminate for an amazing price; as they usually do.
We still can't believe how people can disrespect someone else' home like that. We're so tired of all the BS.
The greatest things in life are not things.
