Buyers Make Their Four-Legged Friends a Priority When Shopping For A New Home!
There are plenty of things to consider when buying a home, from the size of the property to the location to the backyard. But for many Buyers, it is not just about what they are looking for in a home; what their pets are looking for is just as important.
According to data from the National Association of Realtors and realtor.com (outlined in an article from REALTOR Magazine), a whopping 95% of pet-owning home Buyers said their pet’s needs play into their home selection process. And if a home is otherwise perfect but doesn’t fit the needs of their four-legged friend? 68% of those Buyers would pass on the property.
So, what does this mean for you? If you are searching for a home and “perfect for my pet” is on the top of your must-have list? You’re not alone. Factoring your pet’s priorities into your home search will help ensure you find the perfect home for your entire family—human and animal alike.
