Keeping up with a pet takes work, but features can be built and materials selected to pare maintenance. According to a 2015 study conducted by Houzz, the best floors for most pet owners are hardwood, such as oak or mahogany. Homeowners might consider a distressed or matte finish with a sealant if scratches are an issue. Tile and stone also work well. Collins tries to steer buyers away from carpet, which can make removing pet odors tough. Also encourage your clients to favor microfibers with tight weaves for upholstery, says Tracy Lynn, principal designer and owner of the Tracy Lynn Studio in San Diego. Thelen recommends installing a central vacuum cleaning system with multiple outlets so sweeping up pet hair is easier. If animal-related allergies are an issue, Collins recommends an eco-friendly energy recovery ventilator, which continually exchanges stale for fresh air.
When you think of sleek, modern homes, the traditionalist Washington, D.C., area is not the first place that typically comes to mind. Colonials and Greek revivalism seem to populate every other block, which gives Ron Mangas Jr.s focus on contemporary homes a kind of rarefied status. Mangass four-person team, The Contemporary Listings Group at TTR Sothebys International Realty in McLean, Va., closed nearly $39 million in total dollar volume in 2017; 87 percent of the 15 listings they sold were modern, and 77 percent of the 21 buyers they assisted bought modern properties. Mangas usually refers deals that stray outside the modern style to one of the two other associates on his team. But all their marketing dollars go toward attracting buyers and sellers who are interested in this niche.
