Your fur-baby is an important part of the family, and some things that will make BOTH your lives much easier! Regardless of whether you are buying, selling, or just looking for some easy upgrades here are some Fido-Friendly Features:
1. Fenced Yard
Buyers: Fencing can be a big expense, so look for a home that already has one. Home Owners: A fence will definitely add value to the home, just be sure to check with your HOA on rules and regulations before you install something that doesn’t meet neighborhood standards.
2. Doggie Parks + Walking Trails
Buyers: Look for homes within walking distance to trails, open space and dog parks. Home Owners: Be sure to advertise nearby parks if you are selling!
3. Drop Zone Buyers: Look for a home with a drop zone (space for leashes, toys and other belongings)… this is a blessing when it comes to kids and pets. Home Owners: If you don’t have a mud room, create an area that can serve as storage for your pet. It will make the home seem much cleaner!
Buyers: Look for homes with resilient flooring that’s easily cleaned. Home Owners: Consider investing in flooring that will stand the test of time. If you are selling, a fresh cleaning and new carpet go a long way!
5. Doggie doors
Buyers: If your dream home doesn’t have a door, remember it can easily be added. However, look for places that already have a fence installed (that would be the bigger expense). Home Owners: Such an easy way to let your dog in and out- Fido needs his freedom!
