So, do you think it's a good idea to allow pets in your rental properties? I have pets and couldn't imagine being without them, but I'm not sure about allowing them in rentals. I have known a lot of people who would let their animals tear things up, use the bathroom on the floor, etc. One small dog or cat can do a LOT of damage in a home. Yet, you can make a bit with the non-refundable pet deposits if you're selective, and you will obviously be more competitive against other landlords who don't allow pets if you do. What are your thoughts?
