Gone to the Dogs
Gone to the Dogs
Your home is a unique representation of you and your family. For new West Michigan parents with very young children, plush carpeting and a single level might make the most sense. For parents with older, active kids, the best option might be a place where dirty clothes and shoes can be deposited with some tile separating football players and clean carpeting.
Home buyers and builders alike consider family and lifestyle needs when designing new homes or improvements. But “people” needs are not the only reason for making design decisions. For many home buyers, furry family members are just as much a factor in fabric, finish, and flooring choices as anything else.
According to Realtor Magazine, “More homeowners have become pet owners since the pandemic, and homeowners are showing a willingness to move for their pet. In fact, 43% of pet owners say they’d be willing to move to accommodate their pet, according to the National Association of REALTORS®. What’s more, 68% of pet owners surveyed by realtor.com® say they would pass on the perfect home if it didn’t meet their pet’s needs.”
At Eastbrook Homes, we want to give your pets more home for the money too.
Our home designs offer many different options that will appeal to buyers with pets. But our home designs are not the only reason an Eastbrook is a great choice for your whole family, two-legged or four. Many of the Eastbrook Communities in West Michigan and Lansing offer features that make your fur babies feel right at home too.
It’s easy to design a home to fit your family and your lifestyle on the Eastbrook Homes website. Visit the Communities page for information about each one, or reach out to our team to discuss any potential desires or needs you might have to accommodate your furry family members. Details like fencing or lot size may be important considerations for your new home construction plans.
Many of our Eastbrook Communities also offer pet-friendly benefits. For example, Macatawa Legends in Holland, Michigan is located right next to Quincy Dog Park, a 5-acre playground for your furry companions. Town Square, one of our newest Communities, has its own dog park and both the Patio homes and Townhouses include private, fenced-in areas that you can personalize. Many other Eastbrook Communities include walking trails as well.
