Tips for dog owners selling their Boston condo

  1.  Hire a dog walker when potential Boston condo homebuyers arrive, make sure your dog is out of the home. If necessary, hire a dog walker or drop him off at day care so buyers can view your Boston high rise condo in peace and quite.  The last thing you want is your dog barking and scaring away a potential buyer. It can also be the perfect time to take him out to have a little fun in the Boston Common.
  2. Have your agent schedule the showings in the block of time when your dog is out your Boston condo for sale allow plenty of time to have buyers come through.
  3. Make sure to put away all of the dog bowls, bed, and toys. Usually you can hide it in a closet so it doesn’t stand out as much.
  4. Make sure the home is clean of pet hair and odors. You want your house to show well and smell good.  Lighting a couple candles during the showing and using Glade plug ins can make the house smell good and feel inviting.
  5. Communicate with your Boston condo real estate agent about buyers bringing dogs into your home. Personally I always ask them to leave them outside so they don’t get the house dirty.
