How to Sell your South Hudson Home with Pets

Selling a home can be stressful enough as it is, but selling a home where pets have lived can be even harder! Unfortunately for home owners, pets can turn away potential buyers. When you have lived somewhere for a while, you usually don’t know what your house smells like because you get so used to it. Meanwhile, someone who is just visiting, such as a potential buyer whose in your South Hudson NH home for a showing will notice all of the odors lingering in your home.

Unfortunately, not everyone likes animals. If a buyer walks into your South Hudson NH home for a showing and it smells like urine, feces, or an animal in general, they will no longer be interested! Removing all signs of pets before your home is listed then selling it is the easiest route but not always possible. Be sure to clean your home before any showings and repair any damage your pet may have caused.

Before cleaning your home you should try to relocate your pet so no more accidents happen. Cleaning products can be very harmful and toxic to most pets, so you want to be careful with the choices since you wouldn’t want them getting sick and incurring vet bills that can be very expensive. Washing and vacuuming your rugs can remove any lingering odors left behind. Be sure to use something safe that is pet friendly just in case you need to move your pet back into your home, or just in case whoever buys your South Hudson NH home has pets too.

Be sure to clean your yard as well. If your animal has dug any holes in the ground fill them in so no one will get hurt. Many home buyers will ask to see your yard and walk around it. Also, most animals use the bathroom outside, even if they don’t, check your yard just to be safe that there are no landmines that a buyer might step in No one wants to step in dog poop, or see it for that matter. If they do, they may decide not to go back to your South Hudson NH home again if they feel it is a maintenance issue.

Once you have removed your pets, and cleaned your home and your yard you should be okay to set up showings at your home! Good Luck on your new journey selling your South Hudson home!
