Millennials Won’t Buy Home If Pet Doesn’t Like It
Here's a question you maybe never thought about.
Does your pet like your home?
Well, you may not have thought about it...unless you're a Millenial.
I have to confess, through the years I've had a number of pets, and not once was I worried that Sarge or Tiny or Coke liked where we lived. It seemed more important that I liked it Ok, and I assumed if I did, they would.
Well, times change.
According to an article on CNBC, Millenials want a house that their pets like, too. And if they don't...well, no deal.
It seems 73% of Millenials own a pet and 89% of Millenials who bought a home this year own a pet. And furthermore, 79% of pet-owning home buyers said they'd pass up an otherwise perfect home if it didn't meet the needs of their pets.
Now I get it that if, say, you own a horse, that small house near downtown may not work out all that well. But if Fluffy or Fido comes along, they could adapt pretty well.
