When you’re a pet parent who’s selling a house on 30A, you know that pets – even your completely adorable four-legged family members – can be a big turn-off to prospective buyers.
4 Tips for Pet Owners Who Are Selling a Home on 30A
Even if your pets are incredibly friendly and you can’t imagine life without them, there are a few things you need to do before prospective buyers come by:
- Clean your yard
- Remove pet odors
- Vacuum up pet hair
- Remove all your pet’s effects
#1. Clean your yard.
Buyers might walk around your backyard – especially if you have an outdoor living space. Make sure that there isn’t anything unpleasant to step in while they’re out there!
#2. Remove pet odors.
Hire a professional cleaning service to remove pet odors from your home. Even if your pet has never had an accident in the house, some people are especially sensitive to dander and can pick up on the fact that a pet lives there – so make sure there’s nothing to let them sniff out your pet.
#3. Vacuum up pet hair.
In addition to pet hair being able to trigger allergies, it’s unsightly – so before showings, run through the whole house with a vacuum. You can even vacuum your tile and hardwood floors to make sure you get it all.
#4. Remove all your pet’s effects.
You’ll take your pet with you when you leave the house for a showing, so take his or her toys, pet bed, leashes and collars, food and water bowls and other personal effects, too. If someone who doesn’t like pets is coming to see your home, this will help create a great first impression.
