Pets are often regarded as members of the family – so much so that many buyers are basing their home buying decisions on whether or not the home will fit their pets’ needs, according to the 2017 Animal House: Remodeling Impact report. More homeowners are also making modifications and improvements to accommodate their animals. Condos and associations that restrict pets do so at the risk of alienating potential buyers. But keep in mind, when it comes time to sell buyers do not want to be reminded of your furry friend. Professionally cleaning your home to remove any scents is essential!
