Have a furry little Family Member? – Advice for moving with Pets

Many Vancouverites have pets, whether they are cats, dogs, reptiles you name it! They are just as much a part of our family as our children! However, there are some challenges when it comes to Real Estate and Pets, we want you to be informed when making the decision to move. 

Looking to buy? If you have a furry family member and are looking to buy a Condo for the first time, Pet-restrictions come in all shapes and sizes. Make sure you let your Realtor know up front what type of pet you have! For dog restrictions there are breed, size, and number allowed to name a few. Always check through the bylaws if you are serious about a property or have your Realtor contact the Strata Manager if it is not clear. Houses are a different story, generally there are no restrictions for animals in single family homes. However, make sure the back yard is adequate for your dog, there are parks near-by, etc are always considerations when looking to buy, because once you buy your new home it is difficult to add a park or more yard in later!

What about selling? It may be cute to let your cats play in the moving boxes, but what about when it comes down to crunch time?
