Bottom line is the ones without pets saw a higher (although in most cases marginal) increase in value. So, again, I state that pets decrease the value.
i currently have clients who have a dog and their top priority is a pet friendly complex.
since you are in edgewater, you know there are couple of well known pet friendly buildings(crown village, independence harbor, etc) those complexes have not decreased in value but made it more appealing to alot of pet owners since a lot of condos in the bergen county area aren't pet friendly...
The quick and short answer to your question is - it decreases the value.
So, the pet thing will allow a few more people (pet owners) to develop an interest and perhaps an ofsetting few less as well. (Those who do not wish to have pets or be near people who do.)
I doubt that you could truly weigh all these things and come up with a scientific answer and a percentage of value, either up or down for pet ownership as a stand alone criterion.
Most condos now a days allow pets although may have size restrictions
