Many landlords and property managers have a " no pets” policy because they probably think that it is easier to manage or that there will be less damage.
Recent research suggests that the benefits of allowing pets may significantly outweigh any negatives.
Here are 10 Reasons from RealRenta to consider:
Pet owners are generally willing to pay more
Pet friendly properties rent faster
Responsible pet owners generally make reliable
Tenants with pets generally prefer longer leases
You will reduce your spend on advertising if
tenants are staying longer
You will no longer have issues with tenants
hiding their pets
Caring and responsible pet owners tend to be
very conscientious and house proud
Animal welfare agencies suggest that as many as
30% of pets are surrendered by owners who are not allowed to keep their pets
Use a "Pets considered” clause in your
advertising so that you are not locked in and that you can carefully screen the
irresponsible pet owners, from the responsible ones.
Use ‘Pet Agreement Forms” and give them to your
prospective tenants with the Lease. The form is a "resume” that details how a
pet will be kept and managed if approved.
