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.

Even if you consider your pet to be well behaved, it is a lot to ask of them to be calm and welcoming while people they don’t know arrive unexpectedly at your house.  You really can’t predict what your pet might do, and as such, their behaviour can turn home buyers away.

Most people want to gather as much information as they can before they make a decision. Let’s be honest, asking Google for an answer is something we all do, likely on a daily basis! However, it’s so important to make sure you’re getting accurate and up to date information that’s relevant to your particular situation.


This is certainly true when it comes to real estate and making the decision to sell your home. You absolutely don’t want to make decisions about listing your home based on bad information. Not only can this have financial implications, but it can also make the process longer, more stressful, and you’ll end up with results that weren’t at all what you were looking for.
