Home sellers who have pets at home can have a hard time imagining the negative attitudes that potential home buyers may have against a beloved furry family member. But if you want to get the best price for your home, you should consider these factors that may influence the sale of your home when you have a dog, a cat or other types of pets at home.

The FHSA does not replace the RRSP Home Buyer's Plan that already exists, however, it’s important to note that the two programs cannot be used in tandem.
