We hear about service animals and "comfort animals" and are not supposed to turn them away in public places. Now should we allow other people's pets into our listings, especially when the property HAS pets?
I had a listing that was a HOT commodity, and was blessed to have LOTS of showings in just two days. Sometime during the 2nd day, (18 or so showings that day) someone brought a dog, and left a deposit in one of the bedrooms.
This Seller has a dog of her own, and two cats, which were very traumatized when she returned home. It was sad hearing a week later, her dog has ingested the deposit, got very sick, and passed away a month later.
We are to allow these animals into areas where they were not allowed to before. BUT, what if someone in the home has severe animal allergies? In all my years selling homes, I never have had to put a restriction of --- No animals on showings. Would have to if the Seller required it in the listing agreement.
Nobody can say we lead boring lives -- there are always some new challenges in this career!
