Home Buying in 34102>Question Details

Al'swife, Home Buyer in 34102

I just returned from Naples and looked at a couple of condos near the beach that I like but they do not except small pets.

Asked by Al'swife, 34102 Thu Dec 9, 2010

Do you know of any condo's near Lowdermilk that would accept pets. I thought the market was tights. Should owner's review this would condo boards.

Hi Al's Wife,

It's a complicated process to get condo owners to amend their governing documents to allow pets or rentals. Especially with owners that are probably not animal lovers if they purchased in that complex.

I would recommend that you rent for the first year if you are relocating to the area. Ideally rent in the complex you expect to buy in to get a real feel.

Hope this helps.

Not al communities accept pets and those that do have size and breed restrictions. Your REALTOR should be able to point this out for you. From past experience it is not the easiest process having amenities changed by the board; it's generally what you have in the docs is what you can or cannot do or have. My suggestion, move on to another building.

Good Luck!

We have approximately 39 CONDO associations that allow pets. It is best that you have this information before going into a contact. It is not very likely that an association will change the rules after you have purchased.

I will be pleased to help, please contact me by clicking on my image.

Best of luck to you.

You would need to get the majority of the owners in a condominium association to agree to change their rules in order to have pets in a not pet property. Some people buy in pet free condominiums because they don't want pets around. Changes are extremely slim that anyone can get pet rules changed changed in any condominium association.

We have a condo in Estero and owners can have small pets, but not tenants. I agree with the suggestion that you get your agent to work identifying communities that will welcome your entire famly, inlcuding the furry members ;-)

The majority of condominiums will not allow a tenant to have a pet, even though owners may have pets. Renting before you buy is going to cost you time and money. If you have puppies and they bark all the time it's best for you to find a single family home where you won't risk having to resell the property because other owners will complain about barking dogs.

“The most important thing a buyer can do is first of all work with a buyer broker.” As stated by AARP and the Consumer Federation of America from REALTOR® News.

There is no extra/hidden cost for you to obtain my Exclusive Buyer Broker services, other firms may have fees. In the State of Florida only a buyer broker can negotiate for the lowest price and best terms for the buyer. When you work with an Exclusive Buyer Broker, the brokerage firm does not list any homes, there is never a conflict of interest in your transaction. The State of Florida assumes that all buyers know all agents are transactions brokers who do not represent anyone one in the transaction and that the agents have very limited if any liability in the transaction. Unless, an agent or broker tells you they will represent you exclusively the agent is not required to disclose to you that they are a transaction agent or broker.

Hi Al's wife
I see there are currently about 32 condos that are near Lowdermilk that may accept pets (limits and/or approval may be required based on condo rules). It may be difficult to change a regulation like pets. But as there are ones that do allow them, please feel free to contact me with your email and I can send along these listings to you for your review. And I can set you up with a free service to track these and can continue to identify and automatically send listings directly to you when any other condos that meet your specific needs come on the market. I look forward to working together and adding you to my long list of happy customers.

Best regards

Condo rules and regulations vary from community to community, however it's generally typical that pets of a domestic variety are accepted with approval or under a certain maximum weight. An agent will be able to check the pet policy in advance, and in addition, the buyer will have an opportunity to review the condo documents to determine if there are any rules, regulations, or restrictions they may find onerous.

I would be happy to help you further. Please call me at 239-248-6393.

I think Alma has a good suggestion - I've got a place in Estero - very nice, not on the water but a super golf course community. Owners are allowed to have small pets, but not renters, go figure, even if the landlord is ok with it. So do your research and only consider communities that welcome your furry family member.

Good luck to you!
