Joe Kendall Realtor with Sandals Realty 239-560-0726 writes, the real estate market in southwest Florida has changed over the last 12 months. It is important your homes looks and shows in show case presentation ! To get it sold you need to do everything right and if you are a animal lover like myself you need to do the extra worked required to avoid possible pitfalls. The home buyer can be intimiddated by a unwelcome jumping, biting and barking dog. I suggest having a friend watch the dog at their house when you have a showing. Leaving them in a kennel is not eliminating the possible smells, odors and signs go with visual contact a buyer has when seeing a pet. Make the kitty litter boxes go away! We can't sell it, if we can smell it! Also put away food and water bowls. the pet toys and any other pet related objects. I would open some windows and doors and have a friend do a smell test before the home showing. I am a pet friendly Realtor in southwest Florida and I too! enjoy our pets ! My wife has worked our way into having 2 dogs and 4 birds more if I would let her! I understnad the attachment, But when it comes to selling your home. going "Woof " is something you really should try and avoid! Moving and selling a home can be stressful try and avoid any unnecessary trauma to your furry friends!
