If you are selling your home and you have a pet in the house, there are a few things you can do to make sure that Fido doesn’t impact your home sale. After all, you love your pet, but that doesn’t mean potential buyers will. 

1. Find a place for your pet to stay while you are trying to sell. Can your pet stay with a family member or friend so that it will be easier to show the property to potential buyers? 

2. Remove all signs of your pet from the home. Put away leashes, food bowls, treats, litter boxes, or crates so that the buyer can better imagine living in your house. 

Bring in a professional cleaning service to eliminate all pet odors.

3. Eliminate all pet odors. There are some products out there, like Nature’s Miracle, that you can use to clean your home on your own. You can also bring in a professional cleaning service to eliminate all the smells.
