Pet owners are home buyers and there are lots of them. I own dogs and cats and making a decision on what home to buy in San Diego and where to buy it is influenced by the needs of my pets. Yard size and closeness to dog parks and walking trails are an important decision when looking at real estate. If you’re a pet owner looking for that perfect home for you and your pets give us a call.
