Preparing Your Pets for a Home Showing

One of the challenges of selling your home is preparing your pets for showings, says 

home buying experts Apple Tree North Mill Creek. You want to make sure that your furry (or not so furry) friends are out of the way so that potential buyers can focus on the house, and not on Fido chewing on his bone in the corner. But you also don't want to put them in a situation where they're going to be stressed out or anxious. So what's a pet-loving homeowner to do?


Here are a few tips from home buying real estate agents Apple Tree North Mill Creek for making sure your pets are ready for showings:

  1. Make sure your pet is up to date on all their vaccinations. This is important for two reasons. First, you want to make sure your pet is healthy and won't get sick if they come into contact with other animals at the showing. Second, some potential buyers may be allergic to certain animals, and you don't want to give them a bad first impression of your home. 


  1. If you have a dog, make sure they're well-groomed. A potential buyer shouldn't be greeted by a dog who looks like he just rolled in mud. Give them a bath beforehand, and make sure their nails are trimmed. 


  1. Have someone take care of your pet during the showing. Whether it's a friend, family member, or professional pet sitter, you don't want to have to worry about your pet while you're trying to sell your home. 


  1. Put away all pet toys, food bowls, beds, and other signs that there is an animal living in the home. You want potential buyers to be able to imagine themselves living in the home, and that's hard to do when there's evidence of a pet everywhere they look. 


  1. Make sure your home is clean and free of any pet smells. This means vacuuming regularly, cleaning up any accidents ASAP, and using air fresheners or candles if necessary. The last thing you want is for potential buyers and real estate agents Apple Tree North Mill Creek to walk into your home and be greeted by the smell of wet dog. 

Following these tips from home buying experts Apple Tree North Mill Creek, will help ensure that your pets are prepared for showings and that potential buyers will have a positive experience when they come to see your home.  


Preparing your pets for showings doesn't have to be difficult—just follow these simple tips and you'll be well on your way!
