Selling Your Home With Pets

Tips When Selling Your Home if You Have Pets

Having a pet is a great way to bring love and enjoyment into your home. However, when it comes time to sell your home, having a pet can work against you. Keep these tips in mind when selling your home with pets to ensure that your home does not sit on the market.

  • Visit your veterinarian to find activities out of your home for your pets when you are showing your house. That way, your pet will stay safe and out of the way of potential buyers.
  • Consider keeping your pet at the home of a trusted friend or family member. Keeping your pet in a stable home environment will keep them happy and healthy.
  • Never leave your pets home alone when there is a showing at your house. There are too many risks that are associated with leaving your pet home when you are not there.
  • Use an enzymatic cleaner, such as Nature’s Miracle or Urine Gone, to remove pet odors in your home. Do not use room sprays or plug-in scent diffusers, since they will only cover up the odors.
  • If you have any damaged or stained flooring, hire a professional to get rid of the issue.
  • Remove all litter boxes in your home, and clean up every bit of litter that is on the floor.
  • Put away all of your pet’s toys and bowls. The less a potential buyer suspects a pet lives in the home, the better.
  • Clean up your backyard. If you have patches of dead grass, hire a landscaper to make repairs so your yard will look its best.
