Don't Let Your Four-Legged Family Members Affect Your Home Sale

Is your four-legged family member affecting the sale of your home?

You love your pet, but not every potential buyer is going to fall in love with your pet.  Some are dog people, some are cat people, and some are definitely neither.  Some potential buyers may have a phobia of dogs and are terrified by a large dog, and some are allergic to dogs and/or cats.  Think this can affect the sale of your home?  It sure can.

So, how do you go about selling a home with pets?

Read This Before Your Home Inspection

You found the perfect home and have an accepted purchase agreement . . . congratulations! Perhaps you looked at many houses, or maybe the first one you looked at was the one. Either way, you did it!

The next step, if you're like most buyers, is ordering the home inspection. Although you're really excited, you're probably also a bit nervous about the inspection and uncertain about what to expect.

To help you with that, I've compiled a list of things you should know about home inspections. Read it over before the inspection so you can go into it feeling informed and ready to get the most out of the process.
