Showing Your Home Listing with Dogs: Tips to Ensure a Smooth Sale

When it comes to selling your home, it’s important to present it in the best light possible. This means staging the space, decluttering, and making any necessary repairs. But what about your furry friend? While you may love your dog, potential buyers may not appreciate their presence during a showing. Here are some tips from The Garza Home Team at RE/MAX North San Antonio on showing your home listing with dogs.

Make Arrangements for Your Dog

Before a showing, it’s important to make arrangements for your dog. This could mean taking them for a walk, leaving them with a friend or family member, or even boarding them for a few hours. This not only ensures that your dog is safe and comfortable, but it also allows potential buyers to tour your home without any distractions.

Put Your Dog Away

If it’s not possible to make arrangements for your dog, it’s important to put them away during a showing. This means confining them to a specific area of your home, such as a crate or a bedroom, and making sure they have access to food, water, and toys. This not only ensures their safety, but it also allows potential buyers to tour your home without any interruptions.

Clean Up After Your Dog

If you do have your dog at home during a showing, it’s important to clean up after them. This means picking up any toys, bones, or other items they may have left around the house. It also means cleaning up any messes they may have made, such as accidents on the carpet. This not only makes your home more presentable, but it also shows potential buyers that you take pride in your home and are responsible pet owners.

While your dog may be a beloved member of your family, it’s important to remember that not everyone may feel the same way. By making arrangements for your dog or putting them away during a showing, you can ensure that potential buyers can tour your home without any distractions. And if you do have your dog at home during a showing, be sure to clean up after them to make your home as presentable as possible. With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to selling your home quickly and efficiently.
