Create an Evacuation Plan for Your Pets

An evacuation plan is a necessity for every home, especially if you live in an area where fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding, and other disasters are a possibility. Many homeowners create evacuation plans for their homes and practice them with their kids, but far fewer have considered one for their pets. Take these steps to add your pets to your evacuation plan.

Assign pet evacuation to an adult. Everyone should know how to act during an evacuation, and that includes assigning one parent or adult to the pets. This allows the other parent and the children to focus on their part of the evacuation plan, so there’s no confusion during a high-stress moment when time is of the essence.

Keep evacuation maps and pet carriers readily accessible. If you need to evacuate, you should know exactly where every important item is. If you pets require carriers, keep them in a place that you can access easily.

Practice your plan. Include your pets in your home evacuation drills. It’ll help you see how they will respond and make changes to your plan if necessary. Getting your dog out of a window may not be as simple as you think!

Be prepared in case you get separated from your pets. No matter how much you drill your evacuation plan, it’s possible that a dog or cat will run off while you’re focusing on keeping your family safe. A microchip or a GPS-compatible tag can help you find your pets once it’s safe to return to the area.

Does It Make Cents? | Updating Your Floors Before You Sell

There are so many types of flooring: hardwood, luxury vinyl plank, carpet, tile, and even vinyl. Most houses have a mixture of these flooring types. When a potential buyer walks through your house, you can be sure that they will look down to check out the floors.

 

As with other things in your house, the floor’s condition should be taken into consideration as you go to sell your house. Are your floors in good condition? Make sure to look over the entire floor when looking for any major issues that might need to be repaired.

 

Repairing your floors can become expensive, quickly. Always consult a real estate professional before moving forward with major repairs. Sometimes you won’t have to worry about your floors. If your hardwood floors or luxury vinyl plank floors are in good condition, you could wind up getting top dollar for these flooring types. If you have carpet, you will want to think about the current real estate market. If the market is a seller’s market, your agent may be able to use this in their negotiating strategy.

 

Ultimately, you want to make sure your floors are cleaned up and are clean. When a potential buyer walks through your house, you want them to be impressed with how clean it is and how easy it will be for them to move in. If you are interested in finding out if you should replace your own floors before selling, reach out to J King Real Estate and chat with one of our experienced agents today.
