Your pets provide you with companionship. They are always thrilled to see you. They shower you with unconditional love and they are a special part of your family. But your lovable pets could also be stopping your Spring Texas house from selling.
Buyers and sometimes even buyers who are pet lovers will be put off by evidence of pets when they view your home. Buyers don’t want to see pet bowls, toys, beds, bones, and hair. Buyers don’t want to smell litter boxes. Buyers don’t want to see the scratches your pets made on the doors, floors, and windows. Buyers don’t want to be concerned about your pet biting or scratching them. Nor do buyers want to hear pets whimpering or barking.
Make arrangements for your dog to be at a neighbor’s house or take him for a walk during showings. Because putting your dogs in the backyard for showings won’t work. Buyers don’t want to view only your house. Buyers want to view your house AND your backyard.
When you put your house on the Spring Texas real estate market, you need to do everything you possibly can to increase the pool of potential buyers for it. Don’t limit yourself to only buyers who are pet lovers.

I've worked with agents in the past with whom I've been less than impressed, but Jill is top-notch. She is punctual, thorough, and patient. She has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the market, the builders, the school districts, the MUDs, and the neighborhoods. For the sale of our home, Jill took us step by step through the preparations necessary to get our house ready to show: everything from rearrangement of furnishings to referrals for handymen. When we started viewing potential houses to buy, I was amazed that Jill not only knew everything about the house she was showing me, but seemed to know details regarding all the neighboring houses as well. For the closings, Jill was an extra set of eyes, ensuring that the paperwork was in order. She also made sure that the the closing was at a convenient location and took as little time as possible (less than an hour in both instances). All throughout the process, Jill remained a driving force, constantly ensuring that inspection reports were being rendered promptly or that the mortgage provider was keenly aware of the closing date; and I received a steady stream of email updates from her. I couldn't be more pleased with her, and in the event we're once again in the market for another home, she would be my first call. read less
