What's a home without a pet?

By
Real Estate Agent with Positive Properties LLC

 

Hi everyone! In thinking about what makes a house a home, sweet, loving pets come to mind. I just want to remind everyone that there are lots of animals in need of a good home too, just like people. What's a home without a pet anyway? If you know of a person that needs a companion, please mention that a pet might fill that void in their life and direct them to your local animal shelter. To get an idea of what types of pets are waiting to be adopted, click on the following links: Scotland County Humane Society or Pet Finder.com or your local Humane Society. Thanks.

I LOVE my dogs and actually advertise as a pet-friendly agent... They give us so much and its hard for many to understand how big a part of our lives they are.

Charles, I don't consider a house a home unless it does have pets, and I'm also instantly turned off by people who don't have and don't like pets.  Unfortunately, excess hair and other stuff goes with the territory, and I always stand in my newly staged homes, with a wistful look in my eye, because everything is so clean and hair free :-)  BUT I could never consider life without pets.  I'm currently on my last rescued dog of 9 and have 5 of 6 rescued cats.  I would never go anywhere other than a humane society to fill me need for a warm furry body.  Great post!

Pets are really great. Thanks for all of your great comments. It is nice to know that others appreciate animals too. There are so many people that could care less about pets though. I guess the word is out that my family can't turn a stray away because our house seems to be the drop off location of many. Now, the same thing is happening at the Real Estate office. My wife brought kitten home from the office last week and just today 3 half starved kittens showed up at the office. I believe all of the neighborhood cats like to give birth at our office. Anyway, I am on my way home with them in a box to be bottle fed back to health. My wife and daughter are good at that. They have had plenty of practice. Hopefully we will be able to find a good home for these kittens when they are healthy because we are running out of space. If not, I guess we will just have to add 4 more to the family.

I am a pet lover (see pic below of my dog McGuire), no one loves their dog more than I love mine! He is an unbelivable dog, a great companion etc. However, I think there is something to be said for a home that doesn't have pets or little indication of such when trying to sell. I have a listing with 3 dogs that was shown recently. I later received feedback from the showing agent that said the smell was so bad upon entry that the buyers didn't even want to look at the entire home. This is certainly not the standard as I would like to think most pet owners keep a clean home, but I have run into the situation a few times myself with various buyers. My advice would be if you have a pet, clean up behind them every day (if necessary) while trying to sell your home. It is a small price to pay for having such a great addition to your home!
