Their pets’ needs are a main focus for many buyers.
Among other factors, whether or not a home is pet friendly is a major factor in interest for many buyers in the Columbia, SC area. A recent article published by NAR illuminates just how important it is to showcase your listing in a pet-friendly light.
The number of buyers placing an emphasis on the needs of their pets is a bit staggering. The data cited in the NAR article mentioned above indicates that over 66% of people going from renting to owning did so specifically to be able to get a pet or to improve conditions for their current pet. The article also states that close to 70% of buyers who didn’t consider their current home pet-friendly moved exclusively for the wellbeing of their pets.
Because pets are such an important consideration for such a large number of homebuyers, it is definitely worth considering putting some emphasis on features that will make a home pet-friendly. Conveniently, these features are typically ones that also make home appealing for other reasons as well.
