Have you ever put your furry friend’s needs ahead of your own when finding a place to live? Sure you have! Pets are a beloved part of the family. They need to be tolerated in your new digs, and it’s even better if you can find a place that caters to them.
Fortunately, there are plenty of Flushing condos that accept pets and several that offer extra pet-related perks. If you’re looking for a place to live with a pet in tow, read these tips on how to find a home that you’ll both smile about:
Read the condo’s pet policy.
Pet policies in Flushing condos usually go beyond a simple “yes” or “no.” They might list restrictions on the type of pet, breed or size. If you try to smuggle in a pet that doesn’t fit the bill, you’ll probably pay a fine and be asked in a not-so-nice way to either move out or rehome Fido.
Choose a condo located near a park.
If you want your dog to wag its tail, move within walking distance of one of Flushing’s many parks. Flushing Meadows is a favorite, but any green space will score points with your pet!
Consider the neighborhood’s safety.
When dogs need to go outside, they don’t care what time it is! As you browse Flushing condos with your pet, check out your surroundings. Would you feel safe taking your pup for a walk outside at night? Make sure the answer to this question is “yes” before you make an offer.
Put pet-friendly amenities on your wish list.
If you have a dog, an on-site dog run is a fantastic luxury. An on-site dog wash is another nice perk. As you tour Flushing condos, look for other extras, such as a jar of doggie treats at the front desk, to indicate that your pet is welcome.
