A RESALE FACT: If you live in a condo or community that does not allow pets, then you have axed at least half of your potential buyers. Can you say wow? So my advice to you is to not buy into a building that does not allow for cats and dogs. It just does not make good business sense. A no pet building will make it much more difficult to sell. How about these statistics from the National Humane Society: DOGS: There are approximately 77.5 million owned dogs in the United States. Thirty-nine percent of U.S. households own at least one dog Most owners (67 percent) own one dog Twenty-four percent of owners own two dogs Nine percent of owners own three. CATS: There are approximately 93.6 ... See Moremillion owned cats in the United States Thirty-three percent of U.S. households (or 38.2 million) own at least one cat Fifty-six percent of owners own more than one cat On average, owners have two cats (2.45) More female cats are owned than male cats (70 percent vs. 65 percent respectively) Twenty-two percent of owned cats were adopted from an animal shelter Cat owners spent an average of $203 on routine veterinary visit. So you can see that way more than half the U.S. population have either a dog or a cat. Do you really want to axe more than half your potentials buyers ?
