    Consider Your Pets When Buying a Home

     

    If you have dogs, cats, or other pets in your family, you'll want to take their needs into account when you're looking to buy a house. Yes,really. Your furry friends might seem easygoing, but certain homes—and neighborhoods—are more pet-friendly than others.

    Here are some things to consider that often get overlooked; keep them in mind when looking for place where you and your pets can live in peace.

     

    1.  Consider the local pet laws.

    Even if you own a piece of property, it's not guaranteed that your pets will be welcomed there.  Depending on the number and the breed, there may be restrictions especially within an HOA condo development.  

    Some considerations

    • Some HOAs or condo developments restrict the number or type of pets you can have, or spell out how your pet must be restrained in common areas
    • In condo developments, there is often a limit on the number of pets per unit.
    • If you have a breed that tends to bark a lot, find out if your HOA enforces any noise ordinances.

     

    2. Check out the yard and fencing.

    Having a yard where pets can roam is amazing, of course, but keep in mind that if you want to keep your pets in (or other critters out), you'll have to have a fence—or build one.

    There may be zoning laws that only allow underground electric fencing, restrictions on the size or materials allowed for outdoor kennels or dog runs, and most neighborhood zoning will not allow animals to run free, so if you’re looking for a country setting, always...

    How To Build Your Dream Home By Working With An Investor

    When buying a home there is a good chance that you are not going to love 100% of it. There are always things that you are going to want to change or add which costs additional money. The last thing you want to do is spend additional money after you just spent your life savings on a new home. But wait ... WE HAVE A SOLUTION FOR THIS

    What if I told you that there was a way that you can customize your dream home for little to no extra cost?

    Many times, you can build your dream home by working with an investor.

    The best way to go about this is to find an investor that has previous work that you like and reach out to them. An experienced investor will always have multiple projects going on at once. Most home-buyers think that you have to wait until a home is completely renovated and on the market to buy, but this is not true.

    TIP: The earlier you get involved in a project, the more flexibility there will be with design options.

    Picture finding a home in your desired location that you can completely customize it, while still staying within budget. Not only will the house be fully renovated, it will be to your customization. At Revival, we sit down with our clients to go over budget and allow them to pick out everything from paint color, appliances, flooring, etc. This is the absolute best way to get your dream home at a price that won't hurt your pockets.
