- Save ahead for a pet deposit. The average pet deposit is between $200-500.
- Look for pet friendly amenities around your new location including veterinarians, trainers, dog parks, etc.
- Write a pet resume! In your resume you can have a photo of your pet with references from your current or past landlords. Also include a copy of your most current veterinary records.
- Ask a realtor for help! Let your realtor know that you have a pet (pets) that are part of your family. Have them look up housing options that are right for everyone. Our favorite realtors are Jennifer Lacoste with Keller Williams and Patricia Conaghan with Re/Max Alliance.
- Give your pet (especially cats or small dogs) time to acclimate to the new residence. Give them one room to sniff and explore. Once they are comfortable expand slowly, room by room until they are fully acclimated. This can take one day or up to a week. Be patient and give your pet the time they need to be comfortable in their new environment. A move is not just stressful for you, but your pets as well. Ask if there was a pet in the home previously and make sure walls and carpets are cleaned before you move in. Your pets' sensory systems are stronger than humans. They may smell old pet smells that you cannot and mark their territory to claim it as theirs.
