Here are 4 tips to make sure your home captures the hearts of 100% of buyers.

Australia has the highest household rate of pet ownership in the world with 65% of households owning a pet. Now this surprised me. And to most of us well, they're just part of the family. But when you're selling your home, you really want obviously your home to appeal to 100% of buyers.

Here are four simple tips to help you do just that.

Tip number one, the obvious one, quick clean in preparation for any inspections.

Remove food and water bowls, bedding, any toys from inside the home, store them outside preferably in a storage container or a box. If possible, give the floors a quick vacuum and mop to remove any pet hair or dirty marks that little fur babies can make.

Tip number two, eliminate pet odor.

Buy a spray like Glen 20 or eucalyptus spray from your local grocery store just to spray your home with and your furniture with. Will only cost you about $10 and it will create a really nice inviting ambience too.

Tip number three, remove all dog waste.

This is a big one and it usually gets left behind. Do a quick walk around. Pick up any dog waste that may be lying in the yard. You don't want potential buyers noticing it or worse, walking in it when they're walking around the yard.

Tip number four, take your fur babies out.

Now sometimes this may not be possible, but if you can it's best to take your fur babies to a local park or for a short drive during those inspection times.
