Selling your house as a pet owner is a little tougher than it is when you don’t have any pets, but you don’t have to let it get in the way of selling quickly and at the right price.
Selling Your House When You Have Pets
Whether you’ve got a house in Oak Meadow Plantation or a home in Suwannee River Farms, here’s what you can do to make it easier to sell when you have four-legged family members. (On a related note, you could qualify for a tax break when you move with pets.)
Take the Pets Out of the House for Showings
While you don’t have to board your pets at a kennel or send them to live with your extended family just because your house is on the market (that’s hard on everyone involved!), you do need to take them out of the house when people come to see it.
You can’t just whisk them off to another room and shut the door, either. Telling buyers they can’t open a door or peek into the garage because your pets are in there is a big mistake… would you buy a home that you couldn’t explore in-depth? Of course not, and neither will your prospective buyers.
Pick Up Pet Evidence
You can’t leave litterboxes out or dog toys on the sofa while you’re out during showings. While lots of people are animal-lovers, they don’t want to know that you have pets in the house they’re thinking about buying.
