"DO YOU TAKE SNAKES?"

There is a special part of real estate called property managment where you never run out of hearing  unusual questions!

There is always a new question!

Today's question from a prospective tenant is: 

  

"DO YOU TAKE SNAKES?"

 

Even funnier is I thought I heard: "DO YOU TAKE Section 8 (eight)?     and then I asked about the caller's housing assistance status  and the reply was  "what is that?" When I said I thought you wanted to know about whether the rental house is  available for city assistance. 

Then the prospective tenant repeats the question.  

 

"DO YOU TAKE SNAKES?"

 

This time, I heard loud and clear the question.   Now, I won't keep you in suspense,  I was so shocked, I blurted out probably a little too forcefully  a resounding "NO!" and before I could recover from the surprise enough to explalin my pet policy, the caller hung up.  Maybe it was a prank call.  But just in case.  I do NOT allow snakes in any of my rental properties.

 

Then I remembered I decided to advertise a rental as "PET FRIENDLY" 

I   am thinking of a cute little dog or sweet furry kitten, NOT a SNAKE! 

Looks like I need to clarify what PET FRIENDLY means to this property owner.

 

 

I am no longer PET FRIENDLY! at least NOT to SNAKES!
