Can the pets stay for the showings?

Real Estate Sales Representative with Keller Williams Realty Inc.

As a pet owner, you love all of your pets. Unfortunately, not every buyer loves pets as much as you do. If you have pets in your home and you are trying to sell your home, it might be a good idea to remove the pets during the showings. 

The pets can be a bit of a distraction during showings. The pet lovers may be paying more attention to your pets than your home. The ones that do not own pets might be turned off by the fact you own pets. It's always a good idea to let the buyers come through your home without pets inside the home.

I have opened a door for a showing and had a very angry dog charge us.  Pets are nice but they should take that walk with the sellers at the same time

I agree that, in general, it's better to show a home without pets.... dogs, especially, as one never knows how a dog responds to strangers in a home and if they bark a lot it is distracting, even if they are contained. Cats are less of an issue for me... since they more often than not disappear under a bed.

When it comes to pets, I'm more focused on whether the home smells of cats or dogs and/or if it's clean of all sorts of pet hair.
