Pet friendly apartments can expand your offerings to a whole new group of renters. Considering allowing pets but aren’t sure if it’s the right decision for your commercial property? Here are some great reasons to get on the “yes” train when it comes to opening your doors to pets.
1) Pet owners are a large part of the rental market. Target your advertising to them and draw attention to your properties. 2) Pet owners have enough income to take care of themselves and their pets needs including food and visits to the vet. 3) Pet owners are responsible. They have pets to take care of! 4) Pet owners will bring in more renters – other pet owners.
Of course, renting to pet owners might not be for everyone. Pets can make messes and do some damage. A good idea is to bulk up your preventative maintenance schedule to include checking for pet damages. Also, keep communication open for all residents to make sure pets don’t cause tension between renters.
