it can be difficult to find rentals that allow pets and it’s time to end the stigma! More and more people are choosing to adopt companion animals, but many rental properties still don’t allow tenants to keep their furry friends. This has resulted in a lot of heartache for pet owners who want nothing more than a safe place they can call home with their beloved animal companions.
Spinnaker Property Management recognizes that it’s important that we create an environment where all pet owners can find suitable housing without fear or judgment. Allowing rentals that accept pets would be a step in the right direction towards creating such an environment and ensuring everyone is able to enjoy the benefits of owning a pet without worrying about finding suitable housing.
While not all our rentals allow pets and not all of our property owners are willing to allow them, we encourage property owners to take the leap of faith. There are so many benefits and quality applicants that are available to you once you let the dog in!
You Will Have More Qualified Renters if You Allow Pets
Allowing pets in rental properties can help landlords attract more qualified renters. Not only does it appeal to potential tenants who have pets, but it also indicates an openness and understanding from the landlord that is attractive to many types of tenants. Studies have shown that pet owners are more likely to stay longer in a rental property, resulting in fewer vacancies and less time spent on marketing for new renters. Additionally, allowing pets can lead to an increase in rental income as pet owners are typically willing to pay more for rental units that are pet-friendly.
Overall, allowing renting with pets is beneficial for both the tenant and the landlord of a rental property. It appeals to more qualified renters while helping increase rental incomes, keep vacancies low and promote economic growth.
Tenants Are Made Aware of Their Responsibilities
Tenants who bring pets into rental properties should understand that they are responsible for any damages their pet may cause. This can include damage to floors and walls, as well as other tenants’ property. To ensure that there is no confusion on this matter, Spinnaker Property Management is sure to clearly explain these policies in the rental or owner agreement.
In addition, it’s important to make sure tenants have proper insurance coverage to cover any potential damages that may occur due to their pet. Having sufficient coverage can help protect both the landlord and tenant in case of an accident or incident involving their pet. Many insurance companies now offer pet liability coverage specifically for renters with pets, so it’s worth exploring these options if you’re looking for additional protection.
By taking the necessary steps and following the rules surrounding pet-friendly rentals, tenants can show they are responsible owners while helping ensure their rental property remains safe and well maintained at all times.
Give Pets a Chance
It is clear that allowing pets in rental properties can bring a multitude of benefits to both property owners and tenants. Not only do rentals that allow pets attract more qualified renters, increase rental income and help promote economic growth, but it also helps create an environment where pet owners don’t have to fear being judged or discriminated against.
Furthermore, by ensuring tenants understand their responsibilities when bringing pets into the property, property owners can ensure any potential damages are covered while still giving animals a chance at finding a safe home with loving owners. Allowing rentals that accept pets may seem like a daunting task for some property owners, but with proper research and understanding of pet-friendly housing options, everyone can benefit from this mutually beneficial arrangement.
