Considering Pets in Your Home Purchase

                                   
   Pets are important to their owners and families.  We want to make sure they’re comfortable and most importantly that we have everything we need to take care of them properly.  Living in the country, few pet owners run into the problem of places and neighborhoods being “pet-friendly”  but being close to work in the city should’ve mean you have to compromise on the health and wellness of your pet.  There are plenty of neighborhoods in the city or the suburbs with lots of dog parks, pet-friendly businesses and welcoming neighbors with furry friends of their own.
 
     A few tips to keep your furry friends in mind while house hunting:
 
1.  Wherever you’re moving to the city or out to the country, there will be local ordinances in reference to animals.  Familiarize yourself with the ones that pertain to the types of pets you own or would like to own.
 
2.  Moving into a condominium or townhouse usually means more pet stipulations in HOA rules.  Make sure you know what your community HOA says about pet ownership.
 
3.  While you’re looking at a home, consider what it means for you and your pet to live there.  Is there carpeting you want to steer clear of due to pet odor absorption, or will the hardwood floors be ruined by your four-legged friend?  Make sure if you require a fence it’s in good condition.  If cats are your preference, are there screens in the window?  Considering what the living condition will be like for your pet means greater convenience for the owner as well.
