Selling your home is stressful for the entire family, even the four-legged members. While most people spend hours prepping the house to sale, few spend enough time considering what to do with the pets during a showing. Here are some common misconceptions sellers have when deciding how to handle their furry family members.
1) People are here to look at the house, not the pet-- As such, buyers will ignore our pet. Ever been to a pet shop? Animals very quickly become the center of attention.
2) Our dog is calm--When people are home they are in charge of the castle. Once you leave, the pets rule the roost. Ordinarily sedate animals come alive when a stranger enters "their" home.
3) The Dogs will be in the Backyard--Is the back yard not part of the property? Would you buy a house without checking out the back yard? What if the buyers accidentally let the dogs out? Will they be able to herd your pets back to safety? I have had to do this before and it can be tough.
4) Make sure the cat stays in the utility room-- Buyers expect access to EVERY room in the house. Expect Garfield to make a run for it when the door opens. And for the record, all cats turn into teeth and claws when frightened. Even yours!
5) My pit bull is friendly!--- Perhaps she is. What do you think will happen when "Angel" snaps and bites someone during a tour? Keep some quality lawyers on speed dial!
So what should a seller do with the pets? Get them off the property during showings.If a member of the family is home, simply take the pets for a walk. If this is not possible, request 24 hrs notice for showings. Then let angel have a "spa day" at the local kennel. Factor in at least one kennel day per week while active on the market. This might costs a little up front, but it is well worth it for Everyone involved. Even Angel!
