Selling Your Home With Pets
According to a recent realtor.com® survey, nearly 95 percent of pet-owning respondents said that their furry companion plays a role in selecting a home ??
So what does that mean for you as the seller?
While people love their pets, they don't necessarily want to open your front door and immediately think: 3 DOGS AND A CAT LIVE HERE!
You want to hide the evidence while at the same time painting the picture that your home is definitely pet friendly (if that's the case).
You can do this by:
-Highlighting walking trails or dog parks nearby
-Highlight features in your listing description that are great for dogs such as a fenced in backyard, a dog wash station in the garage, a built in cubby for Max to take his naps, etc.
-You can even make it a point to designate a spot for pet storage for dishes, toys, leashes, etc.
You want your home to say "Dogs are WELCOME" vs "Dogs LIVE HERE!"
