Hi Dennis, this is the most detailed explanation I've ever heard about the possibility of whether sellers should allow pets.

Great video series Dennis, we have a pets maybe policy, and deposits are always fairly high for pets.

Hi, Bob:  Thank you for stopping by, and for your comment.  I know some brokers that will take a deposit and no fee, others that'll take only a fee- and still others that take a combination of the two (typically 50/50).

Though some companies split the fees with their owners, most retain the fees themselves.  That's good and bad, of course.  It's good for the company's bottom line. of course- but can present problems at tenants' move-out time if things aren't thoroughly explained on the front end and an owner has expectations that don't meet reality.  That most often happens when companies don't take a deposit.

While some tenant prospects may bristle at either pet fees or deposits, the truth is that it's gotten a bit tougher to convince owners to accept pets period- and whatever monies collected are generally a reflection of the costs of convincing an owner to accept pets at all versus any sort of security-type funds to cover potential damages.
