Listing agents have long had to manage the role of pets in selling a home, including removing smells, accessories, and even the pet themselves in the showing process. Many agents still follow that pattern but other prefer to downplay, rather than hide, all evidence from potential buyers. “I might leave a single leash hanging by a door because that might make a pet owner think of their animal and bring a smile to their face while not upsetting someone who doesnt like dogs,” says Kimberly Cantine, an associate real estate broker with Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty in the Hudson River Valley. Real estate salesperson Barb St. Amant with Atlanta Fine Homes, Sothebys International Realty, in Atlanta, prefers to cite the creature comforts available in online descriptions to stir interest in a listing rather than showcase them visibly.
While Victorian-style homes (generally any house built during the reign of Queen Victoria, between 1837 and 1901) are equated more with romance than practicality, Spindler says they confer several structural advantages. Their old-growth redwood is less vulnerable to pests and earthquakes than newer homes framing. But there are also drawbacks. Victorians were almost always built without electrical service, so sometimes original gas pipes havent been turned off or may have residual gas in their lines after theyve been capped. This can be an issue for workers who might be cutting into old lines. And while many love the feeling of 11-foot ceilings, itll take more steps to get to the next floor, and painting and changing lightbulbs can be more involved. But (especially since many of the architectural plans for these homes were destroyed in the San Francisco earthquake of 1906) being aware and offering insights to clients about such positives and negatives are just part of the job of a style specialist, and Spindler embraces her role as adviser. “None of them come with manuals,” Spindler says. “Its an exploratory process.”
