Indoor, not as much as maybe outdoor. And maybe not for someone who is involved with it and could walk to work. Inquire of the town zoning office for an accurate assessment of land use possibilities. An appraiser could answer more accurately. ... more

Debbie Rose knows what she is saying here. Also, it depends on what kind of business. North Jersey is densely populated and a great tolerance exists for mixed use streets. Land use Zoning is how towns protect values, keeping residential just that. A normal residential street that allows a business to start up next to residence would be unusual on the face of it. Perhaops it has always been permitted and no one noticed? As a genral statement, I believe any appraiser would tell you the effect of new business use on the neighboring residential value would be negative, but how much is dependent on a lot of factors. I can give you an excellent reference of an appraiser how would likely chat about it at no charge giving you some ideas. See profile for email contact. ... more

I'm back again....

Even being a dog person I still agree that it is an unpleasant sight to see. Many dog owners will carry a pooper scooper and/or bag to pick up their dog’s feces but on the other hand think that the dog urinating is acceptable which is why I asked if the association allows for dogs to urinate and mark their territory as I assume there are guidelines and laws that prohibit a dog owner to leave their dog’s poop around the complex. If there is no such guideline for urinating, of course, the dog will lift his leg or pee at any given moment and the owner will allow it to happen vs. taking them to the “area” where urination is permitted (which is easier said than done) and/or as Debbie, suggested watering down the urine, etc.

And yes, many dogs will prefer grass over a rock area so I’m not quite sure that’ll help in the long run.

I find buyers who aren’t dog people prefer complexes that don't allow pets, not only for urination/feces issues but for barking, odor, issues as well.
