Animals of the MLS

This week's edition of Animals of the MLS features a content kitty who is curious enough to be involved in the action all the while still guarding their favorite scratching post from any strange intruder who may attempt to overtake their territory. This family friend is of the long-haired variety so careful and thorough cleaning would most certainly need to be taken in to consideration when placing a home for sale on the market. One of the worst first impressions a potential home shopper can have is of a dirty and un-kept home. Having pets in general can add additional cleaning task especially when they're of the long-haired breeds. 

There are generally two kinds of cats when entering a property to show prospective home buyers. The first variety will greet you at the door and give you a guided tour of the entire residence room by room. The second kind will run away as fast as they can as soon as they hear the key being inserted in to the lock. They'll be hidden away until everyone has left, or perhaps be scared out of their hiding spot only to startle an unsuspecting home shopper. As an agent, knowing a cat is going to be present in the home can make you a little nervous as they have a tendency to try and escape out of the home more often than dogs. Extra vigilance is needed to guard exits. 

As for the picture of the living area itself, it certainly isn't the worst one that has been featured in this weekly series. There is good light in the room and a good camera lens was used to show the depth and size of space. A professional stager would most likely have suggested removing the lounge chair which cuts off the flow in to the room. Also, adding some splashes of color with a decorative rug or perhaps some small pieces of wall art would have added some character and life in to what seems to be a very neutral and bland decor.
