Staging Tips: Showing A Home With Pets
Not all of us grew up with a family pet. In fact, some people may not even enjoy being around them. The best thing to do to ensure top price for your home is to relocate your pets while the home is on the market! You could simply put them in a separate room or even outside, but that most likely won't be enough. Ask a friend or relative to care for your pets, or, if possible, board them at a kennel during a showing. If none of those are possible options, try to minimize the pet's presence. You could place them in a carrier and attach a note informing buyers not to disturb them. Keep litter boxes out of sight and impeccably clean. Also, don't forget to store all of your pet items such as food bowls and toys in a secure location.
