No one will deny that pets are great company for all of us.
However, their presence in your home may put off potential buyers.
Not all people like animals or understand the joy and companionship they bring.
Also, other pet lovers know fully well how much damage a pet can do to your home and yard.
Before an Open Inspection
After you’ve organized for your pets to be away during open inspections, go through this list and make sure that your home looks and smells its best for open inspection days.
1. Remove all pet beds and carriers
2. Put toys and chews away out of sight
3. Vacuum every day to remove hair and fluff
4. Keep food and water bowls out of sight, and keep them clean and empty to stop odors
5. Pack up cat scratching poles or any sign of pet furniture
6. Remove doggie doors and have the glass replaced
7. Take down all photographs of your pets from mantels and cupboards. Also, remove any pictures on places like your refrigerator
8. Remove any recent posts from your social media accounts that contain information or images of your pets
Make sure your home is in tip-top shape during the sales process.
