When searching for a new home, it's not just about finding a place that suits you; if you have pets, it's also about finding a place that suits them too. As pet owners ourselves, we at The Keystone Team understand the unique challenges that come with finding a pet-friendly home. Here's our guide to finding the perfect home for you and your furry friends.
What Makes a Home Pet-Friendly?
A pet-friendly home is more than just a home that allows pets. It's a home that caters to their needs and provides a safe and comfortable environment. Here are some factors to consider:
- Outdoor Space: Dogs in particular need space to run and play. A yard can provide this, but if that's not possible, look for nearby parks or dog runs.
- Flooring: Carpet can trap pet hair and odors, making hardwood or tile floors a better option for pet owners.
- Layout: Open floor plans can give pets more room to move around. Also, consider whether stairs will be manageable for your pet as they age.
- Neighborhood: Not all neighborhoods are pet-friendly. Look for ones with sidewalks, pet-friendly parks, and ideally, pet services like vets and groomers nearby.

The Keystone Team's Top Tips for Pet Owners
- Check the Rules: Always check the pet policies of any potential home. Some may have restrictions on the number, size, or breed of pets allowed.
- Visit with Your Pet: If possible, visit potential homes with your pet. They'll be able to pick up on things that you might miss.
- Think Long-Term: Consider what your pet will need as they age. For example, a home with many stairs might not be suitable for an aging dog.
