How to sell a house when you have pets
Posted on 24th June 2022
So, you're selling your home and you have pets.
Whether they are cats, dogs, or even fish, you need to take into consideration how to make this as smooth a process as possible for both them and you.
Pets can be one of the biggest hindrances when it comes to selling a house - they can cause messes, damage property, and even scare potential buyers!
But with careful planning and execution, you can move your furry (or scaly) friends into their next home with minimal stress for everyone involved.
In this blog post we will discuss how to market your pet-friendly property, do viewings when you have animals present, and move your pets into their new home without any drama.
Let's get started!
When selling a house that is also home to pets, the first thing you need to do is evaluate your marketing strategy.
Are you going to list your property as pet-friendly?
This could be a huge selling point for some families who are looking for a new home but don't want to give up their four-legged friend.
Once you've got your marketing strategy sorted, it's time to start showing your home to potential buyers.
If you have pets, it's important to be present for all viewings.
This way, you can introduce buyers to your animals and answer any questions they may have about them. It's also a good idea to have a game plan for keeping your pets out of the way during viewings.
If you have a dog, for example, you may want to take them on a walk or put them in their crate during showings.
This will help to prevent any accidents or damage that may occur if your dog is running around free.
Finally, when it comes time to move your pets into their new home, there are a few things you can do to make the transition as smooth as possible.
First, try to keep their routine as unchanged as possible.
If they are used to being crated at night, continue doing this in their new home.
If they have a favorite toy or blanket, make sure to bring this with them to their new home as well.
Lastly, be sure to give them plenty of love and attention during this time - they may be feeling just as stressed out as you are!
We hope this blog post has given you some helpful tips on how to sell a house when you have pets.
Just remember to plan ahead, be present for viewings, and keep your pet's routine as unchanged as possible during the move.
With a little bit of preparation, selling a home with pets can be a breeze!
