The pandemic taught many of us important life lessons, one of which being the importance of living intentionally. Safety, security, and happiness in our day to day lives became inherently important. But how can we incorporate that sense of happiness in the place we call home? How can we kick feelings of isolation and loneliness this past year brought on us? The answer? A pet! Here are the top reasons why pet-friendly apartments are the future of real estate.
- Wellbeing – 2021 is all about improving your wellbeing. Owning a pet is a great way to keep your mental health in check. Dogs in particular have amazing amounts of emotional support benefits.
- Loneliness – If your workplace is still figuring out office flexibility, owning a pet can help reduce loneliness if you choose to stay a work-from-home employee. If you are not making the human connections you used to, animals can help decrease feelings of seclusion.
- Amenities – Most apartment buildings make owning a pet easy. Look for those who offer amenities such as washing stations or pet concierge services. Is your apartment near a park? This is a great way to meet other pet loving friends or join in on pet themed events like doggy fun runs.
- Trust and Retention – Chances are, if you feel like your needs are getting met by your apartment building, especially your pets needs, you are more likely to sign a long term lease. This is a win-win for you and your landlord. You can live worry free in an apartment that feels more like a home and less like a short-term placeholder.
