The Right Pet for Your Home

November 18th, 2020

For many families, COVID has created the right conditions for welcoming a pet into the home. Online work and learning mean someone’s always around to play with and care for a new addition.  A furry friend can also alleviate isolation and boredom. Before adopting, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) suggests giving some thought to choosing a furball that works for your space and your lifestyle. Tips include how to create a pet friendly indoor or outdoor space, with ideas on flooring, durable materials for the yard, and creating shady areas for warmer months. You might also want to update your homeowner’s insurance and review local pet ordinances.  Additionally, NAR recommends ways to prepare your pet for your eventual return to work or school.
