Are You a Pet Owner? Consider These Things When Buying

  • February 26, 2016

Pets are very much a part of your family. When you are looking to buy a home, it is natural to keep them in mind. Here are some of the things you should consider when looking to purchase a property:
 
Yard – If you have a dog, a yard can be very important in order to provide a well-enclosed area for exercise. Check out the stability of the fence, the size of the yard, and if the layout meets the needs of an energetic pet.
 
Flooring – A running dog can easily scratch nice wood flooring but cats can scratch carpeting. Know which flooring will work best for your entire family or factor in the additional cost of replacing what is currently there.
 
Indoor space – If you have multiple animals, a slightly larger home may be necessary to provide an adequate amount of space for comfortable living.
 
Neighbors – Always remember to be considerate of neighbors if you have a loud of rambunctious pet. If you are buying a property that shares walls with a neighbor or is in close quarters to others, keep in mind they may not want to be subjected to birds, a barking dog, or squeaking hamster wheel all night.
 
When searching for the perfect property, keep your needs in mind as well as the needs of your furry friends. Some properties you find will be more pet-friendly than others so be sure to take your time when making a decision.
