Pets in the Mix:  From Petrifying to Purrfect

 

A beautiful cat or friendly dog might be just the thing for you and your family.  As members of the household, pets have a place in your home and your heart.  But what about pets and all that go with them when you are buying of selling a home?

In the case of a large investment such as buying or selling a property, addressing the topic of pets during this transaction is worthy of some sniffing out.

True animal lovers often have homes that are welcoming to animals and people alike.  Homes that are set back from roads or traffic, or are close to dog parks or walking trails might have special appeal. 

Horse properties are often fenced, have pasture land or barns, and storage for feed.

Whether or not you have pets, if you are selling a property with  pets, you might have a winning angle for the right buyer.  While real estate agents promote the features, they want to do so without having to overcome pet odor and damage issues. Unfortunately, there are also homes where pets "rule the roost" and the home is less appealing to people. 

When proper care is not taken, or the number of animals in the home out places the owner's ability to adequately take care of them, smells and other issues can become a serious problem in the selling process.

In short, most homes will be primarily evaluated for people, so do the work beforehand to make your home people-friendly and as pet-neutral as possible.

Remember while people often love pets, they don't always love yours.  If possible take your pets with you, or at least crate them so the don't get in the way.  Consider putting the crates in the garage, along with their dishes and water bowls.

Animals add much joy to a home, and are part of the family.  Do you home work, and get ready to make a great first impression when you sell your home.
