Helen Ga Real Estate Left Behind

By
Real Estate Agent with No. Georgia Mountain Realty

Twenty-nine more posts, including this one, in twenty-nine days.  Yes I can do it!  I think. 

LEFT BEHIND.  Those two words evoke sadness don't they?   No matter how positive you are LEFT BEHIND has a negative spin.  Yes it does.  Some of the saddest experiences I face as a Real Estate agent are trying to "fix" what someone has moved away and LEFT BEHIND.  Number 1 on the LEFT BEHIND list would have to be PETS.  Yes, although it is difficult for some of us to believe, many Sellers and Renters leave the house and leave the pet or pets too.  Many a dog and cat are left to fend for themselves.  What happens then?  The dog and cat wait patiently for the owners to return.  They always have before haven't they?  After a few days of no food and water they wonder to the neighbors hungry and confused  Usually the neighbors attempt to chase the pets away, sometimes they know the pets were left behind and sometimes they don't recognize the "Stray".  Animal control is called or worse, and you know the end of this story.  But there are many Real Estate agents who take in the pets left behind and try and find homes for them.  How many times have I seen pleas on our board news groups to help find a home for these neglected dogs or cats. What do you do when you go back to one of your listings and see the family pet or pets LEFT BEHIND?

So very sad...saw this earlier this spring....showed a rural property and a pesky cat came to visit us! Fast forward 2 weeks ahead and that cat was still there...only this time much thinner and so scared....it was trapped inside the house....we finally got it out...and gave it nuts and water...boy was it hungry! i talked to the agent who had it listed and I am not sure what she did! But so sad!!! Good luck on the 30 posts! I am in Day 7....whew!!!

This would be very sad to see happen in a home. Our pets are our family and should be treated as such. Thanks for the post.
