How To “De-Pet” Your Home Before Selling
When you’re preparing your home for sale, you need to think about how to deal with your lovable pets. Here are some simple ways for pet owners to get their homes ready for viewings.
Keep Pets Out Of The House During Viewings
It’s always best to keep your pets out of the house during viewings, as even if your pet is friendly, some potential homebuyers will be uncomfortable around them. If you or someone you know can’t take them out during the viewings, consider a local kennel or pet day camp that will look after them.
Get Rid of Pet Odour
To get rid of pet odour in your house, try airing the house out by opening windows, using speciality air sprays, odour eliminators and scented candles, or putting a dish of vanilla in a warm oven to create a welcoming smell.
Remove Any Extra Toys
Another way to help clear the clutter in your home for viewings is to remove any extra pet toys, beds and equipment so that there is easier mobility for potential homebuyers and they have a chance to fully appreciate your home.
