Animals of the MLS

Our furry friend is front and center in this week's edition of Animals of the MLS. Ears perked, and patiently waiting for a treat this featured family pet could not be more curious as to why this agent is snapping photos of their yard. I'm sure they are worried their buried treasure strewn about the premises might be discovered so they're keeping an eye out on this stranger in their domain. You can bet that this agent wasn't able to escape the home without plenty of belly rubs given out. 

Not a very large breed of dog, this animal's size certainly isn't imposing, however, smaller dogs can be more vocally intimidating than their more size-able counterparts. That being said, it's always best to completely remove pets from the premises if possible for showings or at the very least have them kenneled. There are still plenty of individuals who are afraid of dogs and might not even include your home on the list of possibilities if they know a dog is present.  

As for the picture of the backyard itself, there are a few minor adjustments that could have been made by the agent and owner to make this photo more appealing to prospective buyers. First, there is plenty of greenery, however, it's so large and overgrown it overwhelms the space. Even the partial tree covering the upper right hand corner of the picture is blocking some of the view. These bushes and shrubs should have been trimmed back to give a more spacious feel to the yard. Secondly, the use of a wide angle lense would have gone a long way to show home shoppers a more open view of this yard and possible entertaining space.
