Austin Real Estate News – 3 Ways to Sell a Home with Pets

Posted by Kent Redding on Monday, February 29th, 2016 at 6:22pm


We all love our pets but the sad reality is that if you plan on selling your Austin Real Estate in the coming months not every buyer is going to love your pets as much as you do.

Although it can be difficult selling a home when you have pets the reality is that it’s not impossible especially if you follow these simple tips.

Tip #1 – Send Your Pets on a Mini Vacation

During the period of time that your Austin Home For Sale is on the real estate market you should consider sending your pets on a mini vacation to a pet hotel or ask a trusted friend / family member if they would consider letting your pets stay with them because this will help you to get your pets out of the way and stop buyers from wondering what damage may have been done to your home by your pets.

Tip #2 – Remove All Pet Smells from Your Home

Take the time to remove all pet smells from your home by having your carpets, flooring, upholstery and curtains professionally cleaned.

After you’ve taken the time to get the smells removed from your home you should next use deodorizers like Febreze to remove any lingering pet smells from your Austin Real Estate so buyers who have never been to your home before will have absolutely no idea that you have one or more animals living in your home

#3 – Clean Up Your Yard

Last of all, but most important, take the time to thoroughly clean up your yard and remove all traces of your pets from your yard. This step is important because not only can it absolutely ruin a showing when a prospective buyer steps in dog poop, it can also paint a negative impression and cause the buyer to submit a lower offer on your Austin Real Estate.
