How to Sell My Apartment

Struggling to Sell Your Apartment? Go to the Dogs

Your little furry friends may just be the clincher if you're trying to sell your place of residence. Contrary to popular opinion, pets can help make a place seem more inviting and will leave a lasting impression in the minds of potential buyers, according to The New York Times. But not all animals will pass muster — pets that have winning personalities will be more appealing than unfriendly or ill-behaved ones.

Tamasin Ramsay, a prospective buyer, fell in love with Elbow the friendly black Affenpinscher that greeted interested apartment hunters at a two-bedroom co-op in New York. Tamasin, who ended up purchasing the apartment, says the dog's "presence created a sense of love and family, a sense of belonging. The apartment was beautiful, but what got my attention was the very cute dog that was always bounding around."

So if you're doggone tired of trying to sell your apartment, your four-legged pal may be the answer to all your frustrations. I'm sure your broker's charms can't match up to Fluffy's!

As a non dog owner, I have to say that the first thing that would come to my mind if I saw a dog running around in a place would be pet urine in the carpet and scratched doors and floors. Sorry, but this probably only works with people who own dogs as well, and presumably not even all of them.

So.. Go get a dog to sell your place, and then what? Too many people get pets for the wrong reasons and thats why they end up homeless.
