When you want to sell your house quickly, there are lots of things to consider. Your pets are an important part of your family, but they also require some work when it comes to selling your house. It’s important to follow these steps to ensure a quick sale.


Remove any pet odours

It’s good practice to give your home a deep clean before adding your home to the property market. If you have pets, it may be a good idea to invest in specialist cleaning products that eliminate odours. By treating soft furnishings and curtains with an enzyme cleaning product, you’re well on your way to freeing your home from pet odours you may have grown accustomed to. Think about hiring professional carpet cleaners to freshen up your floors. This will also help with any pet-related stains your carpets have.

Remove visible evidence of your pets

It may sound like an extreme measure, but removing your pet clutter can open up your property to a wider range of prospective buyers. Pop your pet’s bed, toys and food bowls away. Make sure you remove any litter trays. This is especially important before any photographs are taken of your home.

Don’t forget about your outside space! It is just as important to tidy your garden and ensure that all evidence of fouling has been removed. Double check any large borders and bushes for hidden chew toys. If you have dogs, why not freshen up your tired lawn? With seeding and frequent watering, it’ll be looking much tidier in no time.

Repair any pet damage

Whether your cat has clawed the sofa, or your dog has chewed a corner of the skirting, now is the time to make good any damage caused by your pets. If any furniture is damaged, consider removing it from the sale or hiring new pieces. Skirtings, architrave and doors may benefit from a light sanding and a lick of paint.

Not all potential buyers are animal lovers but, with these simple tips, you can be sure that you’re on your way to selling your home quickly.

We had a great experience using National Property Trade and would have no hesitation recommending you to our friends and family
Cormac has an impeccable team within this industry and being an investor with National Property Trade for many years, I have just recently relied on them to sell a lingering property. Whatmore can I say, fantastic, sold wthin 12 days from initial offer to cash in the bank. EXCELLENT!
Very happy with the service we received. I dealt with Daniel and he gave me confidence that other companies didn't. I was very nervous at first but he explained every thoroughly and everything panned out as he said. Great work and I highly recommend National Property Trade
