Pet Friendly Nashville
That stroller you see may NOT be for a baby. If you hear a bark don’t be surprised! One of the biggest growth segments in the US today is that of pet ownership – and it influences where we live, how we travel, where we grab a cup of java, and often our favorite hobbies.
Are you a pet owner? As of 2019 the APPA statistics show that in US alone we now have 90 million dogs and 94 million cats!! By comparison there are approximately only 12 million human infants in the US.
So let’s make this even more interesting! Trend indicators now show that 94% of pet owners make home buying decisions influenced strongly by pet friendly amenities. In many areas it’s estimated that a pet friendly area sells 20% faster than a neighborhood that does not offer those conveniences.
A good example … we moved recently & like most people made an “A list” of must haves. YES, one of our top must haves was either a dog friendly yard, or a community dog park.
How does this affect you when you sell your home?
- Highlight the pet amenities of your area, even a local coffee shop or café where people often sit on the patio with their pets is worth a mention.
- It’s still best to take Fido with you for showings, yet a fenced yard is absolutely worth noting.
- Remember that nearly all buyers start their home search online, and they may know nothing at all about your neighborhood. The more you tell them the better.
