The decision to sell your home probably didn’t come lightly, and you’d likely prefer to sell as quickly as possible to not only minimize the stress, but the nostalgia too. However, selling a home where a furry, four-legged resident resides comes with it’s own set of rules, including removing him from the home during showings via yourself, a friend/family member, a dog walker, or day care. Furthermore, Fido doesn’t typically clean up after himself, so you’ll want to make sure your home is spic and span before potential buyers arrive. The tips in this infographic will get your home showing-ready so you can focus on your new home in Western North Carolina.

Once you’ve given yourself enough time to settle in, leash up your pooch and explore your new home. Take advantage of the cooler weather and changing leaves with a hike along the Coontree Loop Trail or visit the North Carolina Arboretum for a day of exploration and stream splashing. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head over to Square Root for a menu that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.
