Everyone loves a big fluffy Golden Retriever. They're playful, fun, good with kids, and are notorious for damaging rentals. What's not to love?
As an owner of a residential rental property, you have an important question to answer. That question is, "Do I want to allow pets?"
The advantage of allowing pets is that more qualified applicants will apply for your home. You might even be able to decrease the time it takes to find a tenant. The drawback is that by allowing pets into your home, you run the risk of letting in a mischievous dog that will cause severe property damage. The horror stories of dogs destroying homes are everywhere.
To allow pets, or not to allow pets, that is the question.
