We all love our furry friends. When comes to selling your home, having pets can sometimes cause some stress, but if you follow these 3 simple steps, you can keep potential home buyers interested without sacrificing your pet’s happiness.
- Repair your fences. If you’re fencing is scratched or chewed on, take some time to repair and replace parts of your fence. Not only does this make your home appeal stronger but it keeps your pets safe from getting out of the yard.
- Clean up your yard. The fact of the matter is, pet’s leave little landmines around your yard. While showing your home and getting potential home buyers serious in making an offer, clean up those little minefields to protect your home from having those unwanted droppings tracked through your home. Plus, a clean backyard is appealing to home buyers and will boost your chances of an offer.
- Hide any evidence of your pet. Because you want potential home buyers to picture themselves living in your home, it’s important to remove any personal items (i.e. family photos, kids artwork, etc) which includes hiding any evidence of a pet. Not all people are pet people so you want to create the image of a pet free home for them.
