Don’t Let the Cat out of the Bag! Home Staging Tips when you have pets
When your home is on the market in Portland Oregon or anywhere else, common sense dictates that pets should not be seen, smelled, or heard by potential buyers.

The online photos of your home in the MLS are so important, since most buyers preview a property before deciding whether or not to go see it in person. This cute black cat was in two photos of an old listing! However, showing a cat is not a good idea when marketing your home; potential buyers might stay away.
