You might not be a 'pet person,' but your next resident could be! Even if you prefer to keep your home animal-free, many renters love their animals—and need a place to live that allows pets.
When you choose to accept renters with pets, you broaden your pool of high-quality renters in the DMV area. In most cases, pet owners:
As an expert in NoVA property management, we know that rental homes that allow pets can be challenging for renters to find.
When renters do find a home that lets them keep their beloved animals, they work hard to be excellent, long-term residents. Instead of trying to find another rental after their lease ends, these pet-owning renters will often opt to stay in your rental for another lease term!
When you allow pets in your single-family homes and multi-family investment properties, you'll find better options for excellent renters who stay longer. Placing quality renters who renew their leases is one of the best ways to maximize your investment income!
However, allowing pets doesn't mean you have to let every animal into your home. Renters Warehouse DC/NOVA helps investors put protocols in place to protect your property and income.
Much like you practice excellent tenant screening protocol before allowing new residents to move into your property, it's critical to screen pets before allowing them into your DMV rental properties. Investors also need policies in place to help pet owners understand the rules of keeping a pet on the premises.
Our team understands how important pets can be for your residents, and we also know how to protect your property when choosing a renter who has a pet. That's why we can offer our Pet Damage Guarantee to property owners in the DMV!
When something goes wrong, we'll make it right—but we do everything we can to make sure things go right from the start with a renter and their pet.
We are very selective when placing a pet in your rental property. A renter could pass our screening process, but if their pet doesn't meet your criteria, we won't place them in your rental homes!
While we always follow the law when screening potential renters (and their pets), we'll never compromise our high standards as your DC property management team during renter selection. Our thorough screening process protects property owners from bad renters who don't pay the rent, won't follow the rules, and cause damage to your properties.
The same approach applies when screening pets. Before we allow an animal to live in your rental, we:
Our screening process includes checking vet records, setting a maximum pet weight limit, defining the types of animals or breeds allowed in your property, and confirming that pets are healthy, trained, and without a history of aggression.
When we have a plan in place to choose the best pets (and owners) to be your next residents, we get the word out! Your property listing should include the details about allowing pets and the requirements for qualifying to live in your property. When potential renters know they can apply for your property with their beloved companion, you'll have plenty of excellent applicants knocking on your door!
The wrong pets don't belong in your rental homes! However, even excellent pets and pet owners make mistakes sometimes. We stand by our screening process and commitment to protecting your investments! Our Pet Damage Guarantee means that investors can allow pets with confidence—and without worry. Here's how it works!
Allowing pets into your DMV rental properties can be lucrative for property owners. When you work with Renters Warehouse, we shelter your income—and your properties—from pet-related damage with our Pet Damage Guarantee!
Our Leasing Team at Renters Warehouse knows that pet owners can boost your income—but we also understand the risk involved with allowing pets into your property.
No matter where your investment properties are located in the DMV, they're in excellent hands when you choose to rely on the Renters Warehouse DC/NOVA Leasing Team!
Pets can be a fantastic benefit to your bottom line. Still, without the right screening process and guarantees, investors can't have confidence in a property manager to protect their properties.
We believe in our renter and pet screening processes to make sure we choose only the best residents and animals to live in your properties! With our Pet Damage Guarantee, investors can trust that a pet in your rental homes will come with an excellent renter who takes good care of your rental. If something goes wrong, we make it right!
