Welcome to Verandah Properties, LLC, where we champion strategies that not only protect but also enhance the value and appeal of your investment. One of the fundamental philosophies we uphold is the inclusion of pets in our rental properties. We firmly believe that a pet-negotiable policy is essential for fostering a broader, more qualified pool of potential tenants, thus reducing vacancies, and enhancing the overall attractiveness of your property.
1. Broadening the Tenant Pool
The reality is clear: a significant percentage of potential tenants are pet owners. By adopting a pet-negotiable stance, you inherently increase the marketability of your property, accessing a more extensive network of prospective tenants.
2. Attracting Responsible Tenants
Our rigorous tenant qualification process is the cornerstone of our approach. Rest assured, the tenants we place value responsibility, exhibiting a proven track record of reliability and integrity. Such tenants are more likely to be conscientious pet owners who ensure their pets maintain a respectful coexistence within the property.
3. Ensuring Accountability
Our state-of-the-art accounting system interfaces seamlessly with credit bureaus, reporting timely as well as late payments directly. Tenants are acutely aware that their financial conduct impacts their credit score, instilling a heightened sense of accountability. This extends to their responsibility for any pet-related damages, ensuring that they undertake necessary actions to maintain the property in excellent condition.
4. Optimizing Vacancy Rates
A pet-negotiable policy is a strategic lever for minimizing vacancy rates. It ensures your property remains competitive and attractive, preventing prolonged vacancies that could otherwise affect your return on investment.
5. Service Animals
It’s also essential to recognize the legal imperatives: service animals are not pets. Regulations mandate that service animals be accommodated, underscoring the practicality of adopting a more inclusive pet policy proactively.
