Landlords should not close door on pets

With almost 50 percent of tenants seeking rental properties that allow pets, landlords should think twice before shutting out this huge section of the renting market.

Because pet friendly rental properties are much harder to find, tenants with pets tend to be willing to pay good rents and the records show that they stay considerably longer in their leases.

Pets should be considered on a case by case basis the same as tenants and just as a property manager does with tenant applicants it is not too hard to seek testimonials from previous managers or landlords.
