Did you know that according to a 2020 realtor.com survey, 84% of people consider their pets needs as extremely important when purchasing a new home. So we know our furry (and not so furry) little friends are important but what are the top 5 things considered by pet owners looking at buying a new home?
A Dog Run.
Proximity to Outdoor Spaces
A few bonus things to consider when buying a home are:
Type of flooring. A vinyl plank or tile can be nice for easy clean up whereas carpet can hold onto fur and scents.
Neighbourhood regulations. Some condos and neighbourhoods will have restrictive covenants that don't allow certain breeds or size of pets. It's important to know that before buying.
Walking Trails. A home near walking trails can be great for pets and owners alike.
