De-personalize and make way: Lose (not loose) the pets & children
Not everyone is a dog person, not everyone is a cat person, not everyone loves children. Be sure to eliminate odours and evidence of your cherished little ones as their toys, and leavings can distract from the houses overall appeal…and be sure to REMOVE THEM FOR SHOWINGS.
Cats, Dogs and Kids are sales killers, they completely distract from the house.
Time and time again we’ve take clients through homes who loved or hated the pets and all they could talk about for the rest of the tour was the pets…they didn’t even see the house.
Have a friend, relative, neighbour or hire a walker to remove your pets for showings and if you have little ones limit showing times to when you can reasonably remove them from the home. Hit the park, go to the library or tim’s.
