Do you have a dog? Do you love your dog? For many pet owners, that’s really the same question. Of course, you love your dog! Renters who have a dog, cat, or more than one pet often face additional challenges when renting an apartment in Dallas TX. One of the primary challenges the renters may face is finding a living situation that is acceptable to them and also willing to accept their pets. You need both in order to be happy in your new living situation! This can be difficult as many rental properties do not allow pets at all, particularly of the luxury highrises downtown. Those who do allow animals on the property may place certain restrictions on the size and breed of dog in order to pass requirements. If you have an exotic pet, like a reptile, this may be a problem too. So, what can you do if you need a new apartment and want to bring your furry or scaly friend along?
First things first- you need to reach out to a Dallas TX apartment finder. You don’t know every apartment for rent in the whole city. That’s okay because someone else does! A professional apartment finder can help you in your search for a new place to live. You’ll tell him or her a few things you need, like the number of rooms, your monthly budget, and of course the fact that it must be pet friendly. They’ll take it from there and present you with a list of possible options. Unlike trying to do this yourself via the internet, this list will have only apartments that are a perfect fit. It’ll be easy to skim through and pick your favorite!
Renters who have pets should read their lease agreement very carefully before making a decision to rent a particular property. This is important because some apartment buildings or landlords impose additional restrictions or fees on renters who own pets. These restrictions may include, but are not limited to, requiring an additional security deposit, requiring specific cleaning methods on the carpets, a fee after the renter vacates the apartment to clean it, and holding the renter responsible if a dog engages in nuisance barking. Some landlords even charge a higher monthly rate. Your Creative Realty apartment locator will go over all of this with you. It’s just one way working with a professional makes the entire process easier and less stressful.
Wouldn’t it be great to not only find an apartment that checks off all of your boxes but also one that you absolutely love? An apartment finder helps make this possible! Beyond the usual “How many bedrooms do you need?” questions, these professionals will also match you to an apartment that has the amenities that will make you happy. Wouldn’t you love to live on the ground floor so you don’t need to go up and down the stairs every time your dog needs a walk? You could rent a place within walking distance of your favorite cat cafe. You could even find a new apartment near a dog park or that has a dog area on property. Whatever you can dream up, a professional apartment locator will help you find!
