Open Houses with Pets
I haven’t met someone who would pay more for a house because there is a cat or dog living there yet I do know people decided they didn’t want a house because there was a cat or dog living there. Open houses are ideal times to take Fluffy and Rover to the groomers, friends for a visit or extra long walks. Keep the home well vacuumed to minimize evidence of shedding and dander for potentially allergic buyers. Keep the litter box outside if possible. Put away their toys, feeding dishes and scratching posts. Consider using air fresheners, a fresh scent, nothing overpowering as may cause a red flag for potential buyers that you are hiding something other than your pets’ odors. Oh and that fish tank that is empty- remove it! I recently viewed a townhouse where the large fish tank made the bedroom look small. Thinking of selling? Wondering what’s my home worth?
