Pets’ needs are a big deal when it comes to picking the perfect house — whether you have one or plan to get one. Nearly 95 percent of pet owners say their pets played an important part in the homebuying process. Having a garage, a spacious yard, extra square footage, and access to outdoor spaces are all biggies for pet lovers planning to purchase.
Maybe your pet is the reason you just bought a house, or maybe you bought a home so you can finally add a furry member (or two) to your family. Two-thirds of U.S. households currently own or plan to adopt a pet. If you don’t have a name picked out yet, this is the fun part. These ideas from our team members can get you started.
