Moving? So Many Apartments are not Pet Friendly

Monday, December 16, 2013

Pet UnfriendlyI was in real estate and one of the most annoying things to me is that so many of the condos and co-ops in Bergen County, N.J. do not allow pets! This made my job a lot more difficult because according to a recent apartments.com survey of more than 1,000 renters around the U.S., nearly 90% who responded said that they have an animal. More than 80% said an animal friendly policy played a major role in where they chose to live. 30% sought out an apartment in close proximity to desirable animal amenities such as dog parks, walking trails and a veterinary office.  Nothing annoys me more than a co-op or condo complex that does not allow pets. They’re too lazy to develop and enforce rules and regulations! Face it animals and a part of most of our lives. These places should get with the program or they may stay vacant for a very long time and it serves them right. If you are lucky enough to live in a pet friendly building, follow the rules, walk your dog in designated areas, keep him on his dog leash and clean up after him. If you own a pet, don’t even consider a co-op in Bergen County, NJ. The rules are ridiculous and pets are out without a doubt!!
