Presenting Your Pet-Friendly Home to Buyers

Our friends (the non-furry type) at RE/MAX share some pointers on how to sell a property where pets live.

  • 1

    Pet Zones

    Designate a space for pet essentials like toys, litter boxes, and food dishes.

  • 2

    Routine

    Try and schedule potential buyers visits around your pet's regular feeding, play and walking times.

  • 3

    Deep Cleaning

    Regularly wipe down walls and clean to minimize fur and odours; consider professional cleaning services.

  • 4

    Home Etiquette

    Board or find a temporary spot for your pets during showings if you don’t have access to a safe spot at home.
