Abstract

A nationwide empirical study was conducted to determine the factors influencing the availability of pet-friendly rental housing throughout the US. Factors examined included an assessment of a variety of financial and economic factors, rental rates, deposits, turnover and damage histories, rental tendencies and trends, and the types and sources of concerns landlords have about allowing tenants to keep companion animals. The results of the study demonstrated that for the majority of landlords, offering pet-friendly rentals is not only economically viable, but can actually increase their bottom-line profits.
