When Your Pet Dictates Where You Live

A rising trend shows some buyers are making housing decisions based on the needs of their dog.

Pets are an awesome part of our lives, so it’s no surprise that more buyers now consider the needs of their pups a priority when searching for a new home. Anytime you’re searching for a new home, there’s always a list of must-haves. Now, we’re seeing a rising trend in potential buyers making their housing decisions based on the needs of their dog.

And it’s not just about a building being pet-friendly. Whether it’s looking for the perfect fenced in yard, or being near a park with a dog run. Just as parents make sacrifices for their children, so too are buyers now making sacrifices for Fido.
