Hey landlords, listen up! If you’re not currently allowing residents to have pets, you may want to rethink your rules and regs. Results of a recent study show that 61% of U.S. families who rent their home have a pet or plan to have one in the near future. The L.A. Times found that in the Southland, that number rises to 70% of renters who are pet owners.
Indeed an apartment building’s pet policies played a major role in the decision about where to rent for nearly nine out of 10 pet owners, confirms Apartments.com. A recent survey found that 70% of pet owners said their choice of where to rent was influenced by nearby pet amenities, such as parks, veterinary facilities and pet stores.
Enjoy this cool infographic display on pets and renters from the California Association of Realtors….and perhaps update your buildings’ policies.
