Condo Living With Pets: What You Need to Know Before You Buy

May 10th, 2023

Condominium living offers a number of benefits for pet owners. With the convenience of shared amenities, proximity to green spaces, and the potential for a lower maintenance lifestyle, many pet owners in North Park are choosing to make their home in a condo. However, it’s important to be aware of certain considerations before making the leap. In this post, we’ll explore some of the key factors to consider when purchasing this type of living space with pets in mind.

What should I do before buying a condo as a pet owner?

Here are five important considerations to take into account: north park condo

Check the pet policy

The first thing to consider is the place’s pet policy. Some living spaces have strict policies that limit the number, type, or size of pets that residents can keep, especially if you’re renting the space. It’s important to check the policy before making any commitments to ensure that your pet will be allowed to live with you. 

Consider the size and breed of your pet

When looking for a space that is pet-friendly, it’s important to consider the size and breed of your pet. Some spaces have weight limits or breed restrictions in place, so it’s important to make sure that your pet is allowed. Even if the place has a policy that allows all pets, it’s important to consider whether the space is suitable for your pet’s needs. For example, a large dog may need more space to run around and play than a small dog or cat.

Check the building amenities

Many buildings offer amenities that are specifically designed for pets, such as dog parks or pet washing stations. It’s important to check the building’s amenities before making a decision to ensure that they are suitable for your pet’s needs. If the building does not have a designated pet area, consider whether the surrounding area has suitable green spaces for your pet to exercise and play.

Consider the location

When choosing a place to live with pets in mind, it’s important to consider the location of the building. Look for places that are located near green spaces or pet-friendly areas, such as parks or hiking trails. Additionally, consider whether the living space is located near a veterinarian or pet supply store for convenience.

Prepare your pet 

Finally, it’s important to prepare your pet. These apartments can be noisy and crowded, which can be overwhelming for some pets. Consider how your pet will adjust to the new environment and take steps to help them acclimate. This may include slowly introducing them to the new space or providing them with a comfortable and familiar bed or toys.
