Remove your pets. Not everyone is a pet person and many people associate in-house pets with damage throughout the home. In fact, advertising that you have pets will decrease the likelihood of a sale. Even if your pets are the most well-behaved of all pets, your buyers don’t know that. When showing your home, be sure to remove your pets from the house. This also includes hiding their bowls, litter box, cage, and whatever pet related items are strewn about your house.
