Believe it or not, today’s pets are real estate influencers. 

By that I mean they play a big role in real estate transactions: 81% of Americans say animal-related considerations play a role when they decide on their next living situation. Furthermore, 89% say they wouldn’t give up their pet because of any housing restrictions or limitations.
Before you sell, consult with your agent about small projects you can take on that highlight your home’s pet amenities.

The majority of pet owners consider their pets a part of their family, so it’s important to factor them in when choosing a place to live. Highlighting pet-friendly amenities in your listing, such as a spacious yard or a mudroom for dirty paws, can make it easier for buyers to find the home of their pets’ dreams. Other pet-friendly amenities to highlight include ample outdoor space, pet washing stations (e.g., a mudroom or laundry room), and pet doors.

The bottom line is, pets are influencing real estate like never before, so before you sell, consult with your agent about small projects you can take on that highlight your home’s pet amenities. If you’re looking to buy and you have pets, consult with your agent about which pet amenities you’re looking for in your next home.
