With an upward trend of available renters choosing their pet’s needs over their own, you might want to consider making your property a little more pet friendly. The data supported by the Foundation for Interdisciplinary Research and Education Promoting Animal Welfare shows that only one-half of housing is pet-friendly, which makes this a great opportunity to get ahead of the competition.
According to the American Veterinary Medical Foundation, in 2012 there were 43 million households that owned dogs and 36 million households that owned cats, with indicators that the pet-loving trend is going up. The Los Angeles Times reported that a survey in August 2014 showed that more than 70% of apartment renters stated they owned pets. Even the City of Los Angeles stated on February 2, 2016 that they’ll start creating legislation aimed at making it easier for renters to have housing that accepts their pets.
