What to do With Your Pets When You Have a House Inspection
April 1, 2017 Samford Pet Resort

Did you know that you don’t have to be going away on a week-long holiday to bring your pets to us? At Samford Pet Resort, we look after pets for all kinds of reasons!

Maybe you’re getting your home renovated, and you don’t want your playful pup getting in the way of the builders. Perhaps you’re moving house, and don’t want your kitty getting intimidated by all the potential buyers coming for inspections. Or maybe you just want to treat your pet to a bit of R&R, in a safe and comfortable environment.

Whatever the case, we’re always happy to help. Because we love nothing more than making sure your pet is the happiest they can be!

Selling a house when you have pets

When you have pets, selling your home can be a complicated task. On one hand, your pet is a much-loved and adored member of your family. Yet, on the other hand, you must appeal to buyers who might not love animals the way you do. Visible signs of your pets (like cat hair, holes in the backyard and scratches on the walls) can potentially compromise your chances of getting the best deal.

In some cases, having your pet present during home inspections can even reduce your chances of getting an offer. Especially if your dog is prone to showing aggressive behaviour when faced with people they don’t know.

So, what’s the best solution?

If you have house inspections (rental or for sale) lined up, it might be less stressful for you and your pets if they’re booked in for a mini vacay at Samford Pet Resort. Selling your home is a long process. Sometimes it can take months to find the right buyer, and leaving your beloved pet at a friend’s house or a boarding kennel for extended periods of time can really add up in cost.

That’s why we offer pet day care and one-night accommodation!

At Samford Pet Resort, you can leave your pets in the hands of our pet care professionals for just one day or one night. Drop them off in the morning and pick them back up in the evening, just like taking your kids to daycare!

We can pamper them up

At Samford Pet Resort, we also offer an array of extra services. Our pet grooming is one of the most popular. If you’re feeling guilty about booking your fur baby in for a weekend stay when you’re not actually going anywhere, treating them to a bit of pampering might help ease your worries. Plus, it’ll be nice to know your pet is getting the royal treatment while you’re run off your feet catering for your visitors/inspectors!

You can watch their movements online

Another fantastic service of ours is the My Pet Space feature. While you’re flat out organising things all weekend, you can quickly and easily jump online and check in on how your pet is going. The virtual space allows you to log in and monitor your pet’s every move, with photos uploaded by our loving staff members for your viewing. Pretty cool, huh?

If you have a house inspection coming up, give us a call, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have!
