Columbus Indiana Home Seller's that have dogs as pets, let me show you how to increase the potential of selling your home quicker! When your home is scheduled for a showing, take your pets/dogs to "Dog World Daycare & Behavior Center! When there are No Distractions! ie/ your pet dog barking! You have just increased the potential to have your home "Sold" Why you ask? Because its difficult enough to show the value of your home and have conversations with prospective clients/buyers if they can't hear each other without trying to talk over a dog barking! And its not his/her fault, animals are inherent protectors of their territory.
Most Realtors will list homes with full intentions of trying to sell to prospective buyers that they bring to show the house, or through other agents that have matched your home, to the search criteria of their buyers.
But every once in a while, we as agents hear of an experience involving pets and home owners, and agents not acting professional or responsibly, meaning - the agent that listed the home didn't leave a comment about the home having pets or dogs on the premises within the "Remarks" section of their MLS listing. As a result something happens, a colleague from Flushing, NY. just experienced a "Murphy's Law" scenario while trying to show her perspective buyer's a listing. It's actually a funny story in some ways, but I would have arranged to have left her kids with a sitter! But then the story would lose one of it's main characters!. You can read the full story at http://activerain.com/blogsview/1464266/murphy-s-law-can-be-a-real-b-sometimes-got-pets-put-the-pets-in-the-remarks-section-seriously-
Columbus Indiana is a great city, and we have many happy home owners sharing their lives, their homes, with loved and cherished "Man's Best Friend" their faith-full dog, I myself have two "Chloe & Cowboy" two beautiful purebred Boxers.
In an effort to Help my seller's, I always suggest, they try to take their dog for a long walk, when a showing is scheduled. But there will always be times when a walk isn't possible, maybe because of prior commitments or the owner's are at work? But the scenario must be dealt with, which means I suggest crating the pet, and preferably setting the crate in the garage if there is one. If there's no garage then the basement is my next suggestion, preferably in a utility room, and behind a door that can be closed with a small note attached to the door Warning/Advising prospective Agents and their buyer's of the crated dog within the room.
If those alternatives aren't available perhaps the pets could be tied up outside or in a kennel, neither of which I really like. But now, Columbus Indiana residents and their pet dogs have an alternative! "Dog World DayCare and Behavior Center" is open, and available.
Dog World Daycare and Behavior Center is a high quality, cage free, afford-ably priced facility for dogs. It is locally owned and operated by Nick and Julie Woolls. Nick is a certified dog obedience trainer. I've visited and utilized Dog World DayCare, I know my two Boxers just loved the time there, and I highly recommend it to my clients! As Co-Chairman of the Columbus Indiana Dog Park Association, I know most of our board members have also enjoyed taking their dogs, as well. For "Home Seller's, that have their home listed, it should be a simple remedy to leaving their pets/dogs at home during a showing, Just take them to Dog World Daycare, their fees are very reasonable, and their hours are great. I hope to see you there!
