Currently, it’s not uncommon for most people who are searching for homes for rent in San Diego to also have pets.
Sadly, there are fewer pet-friendly rental properties these days because some owners, and San Diego Property Management companies, do not allow pets.
Allowing pets in a rental property is a good idea especially for these reasons:
Reason #1 – The Listing Will Attract an Additional 70% More Renters
Since there’s a lot of rental properties in San Diego that don’t allow pets, a pet-friendly rental property will without a doubt attract the interest of up to 70% more renters who are searching for pet-friendly rentals in the area.
Reason #2 – Most Pet Owners Have Trained Their Pets
Most pet owners are responsible individuals and have either taken the time to train their pets or they’ve had them professionally trained to no potty in the house or jump on furniture.
Reason #3 – Pet Owners Are Generally Cleaner Tenants
Pet owners make great tenants because they are generally a cleaner, conscientious, tenant than non-pet owners. They also consider their pets to be a part of their family and want to do everything possible to not alarm the owner of their rental property and cause them to possibly evict them due to their pet’s bad behavior.
Reason #4 – Earn More Money from Your Rental
When an owner chooses to rent to a pet owner they can realistically earn more money from their rental property because they can charge a higher rent and pet deposit.
Reason #5 – Many Pet Owners Will Be Long Term Tenants
Last of all, but most important, another great reason why a landlord should consider allowing pets in their San Diego rental property is that many pet owners become long-term tenants since it’s often a struggle for them to find pet-friendly rental properties elsewhere that they can afford.
