The signs above were taken while on a listing appointment this week. Pretty obvious that this was a pet friendly house..
As REALTORS® we have always told our sellers to make their home show ready at a moment's notice, get out of the house, have it in pristine condition and make sure there are no signs of Fido and the rest of the four legged family members.
I am reconsidering the part of hiding the evidence of a pet.
The house still needs to be pristine and without pet odors.
''Forty-two percent of millennial prospective homeowners say their dog—or their desire to adopt one—is a key factor in their desire to purchase a home in the future, according to the survey.''
So if you are thinking of selling your home, it might be a good idea to show how your home is pet friendly or could be.
Don't have a pet, buy a fluffy dog bed that goes with your decor and use it as a staging prop.
Maybe put a stuffed doggy toy in that bed.
Times are changing.
