Not at all, the bigger the problems - either real or perceived, the bigger the discount on the sales price should be. The majority of it is probably in the carpets and pads. If it has gone through to the sub flooring, kilz paint should do the trick, or just replace the sub floor - 4 x 8 particle board isn't very expensive. There is a good chance you will see the urine staines and will only replace the stained boards. If you paint, just get a roller and paint the whole sub floor. If there are other odors, a good duct cleaning will help clear a lot of that up - about $350. Just make sure they do the full cleaning with the scrubbing machine and antibacterial cleaner. Good luck.
