4 Things You Didn't Know Would Help You Sell

4 Reasons Your Pet Should Not Be Home For A Showing

Your pets may be part of the family, but that doesn’t mean they need to greet potential buyers at the door when you show your home. To avoid distraction or a less-than-great first impression, your pet should not be home for a showing. Here’s why:

1 Allergies. The buyer is allergic and having the pet there not only makes them sneeze and cough while trying to see your home, but it also makes them think that they will be living in a perpetual state of discomfort if they purchase your home.

2 Love! They love your dog or cat and spend more time coddling your pet than they do enjoying your home.

3 Fear. A buyer may be afraid of your pet and either can’t focus on the tour or they end the showing early.

4 Odor. You may not notice, but your pet SMELLS! You live there and no longer notice it… you even ask your friends and they don’t smell it either. But, I have news for you, your pet has an odor and the buyer may not like it.

So maybe your pet shouldn’t be near the buyer during a showing, but could they be on site? Having your pets on the property could pose a problem even if they are seemingly out of the way. Your dog could bark from the garage or backyard and the agent might not have the ability to alleviate the distraction. Your pets will be anxious with strangers in your home, especially if you aren’t there.

Rather than have your furry friends on the premise, ask a friend, neighbor, or family member if they wouldn’t mind pet sitting while your house is being shown. Better yet, plan to spend some quality time with your pet while your agent shows your home. This may take extra preparation, but it will be well worth it when your house sells in no time!

Christina is a wonderful agent and possesses all the necessary qualities of someone you want on your side for the big day. She comes prepared to each viewing and takes the time to learn her clients needs. This all occurs while she manages a household of 4 at home and attendsย  to her clients every need. Some of her flagship attributes are: patience, confidence, and most importantly, her an incredible sense of humor. I can't tell you how many times my wife and I laughed while viewing a home or talking with Christina on the phone. There were times I forgot we hired her as our agent because the relationship grew quickly from strictly business to more personal interactions. One of my favorite attributes above is her confidence. As a buyer, I wanted to know that before I placed an offer on a home, it was valued correctly. Christina was honest always. If I thought a house was overpriced and she disagreed, she told me - and vice versa. No passiveness or beating around the bush - concise and frank. Thank you Christina - if we ever decide to move from this home, you know we'll call you to be our agent.
