Buying a Condo in Sarasota? Ask Your Real Estate Agent If Pets are Allowed!
This past three weeks, I've been nursing a family member, Snuffy Smith. Snuffy has only been a part of our family since 2004, but we now say that we live in Snuffy's house. He's the center of my universe, and how I sold Sarasota real estate or functioned without him is beyond me. Snuffy Smith took my heart right away. Over time, my son, Scott, who is bipolar, was won over by this bundle of black fur too. Neither of us knew how much a little dog would take over our home. Bipolar disorder isn't fun for the one with what I call "the gene from hell" or for the caregiver, but I can tell you this little firecracker has saved us both so when Snuffy hurt his back recently, went on steroids, it kind of rocked our world.
Because so many real estate customers have pets that are important part of their home, I want to reiterate how important it is for a real estate agent to ask their customers the right questions. In this regard, agents should ask their buyers about the number of pets and sizes making the move. All condominiums in Sarasota have different rules and regulations regarding the number of pets and the sizes allowed in a condo. Many condos allow the owners to have a pet or two on a restricted basis, and others allow none. Most condos do not allow tenants to have pets.
If you are buying a condo, tell your Realtor the facts so later you don't find out that Snuffles or Restless can't make the move with you. Don't rock your world by buying a condo without checking out the rules first!
