That might help but we are at about a 3% vacancy rate city wide and it can be tighter depending where you are looking. I heard of some real estate management companies charging a retainer fee to find you a place because they come and go quick.

My daughter lives in the Foothills Apartments. They allow 2 cats and dogs up to a certain size. They are extremely well maintained and have a nice grassy area and decks or patios. They also have garages for rent as well. They are over 900 sq. ft and have 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. They are located at 174th and Powell behind the Chevron. They are on a busline, close to Safeway, Bi Mart and Walmart. They have several restaurants in the area as well. My daughter is deaf and has lived there for 5 years. It is a safe place.A lot of rentals whether they be homes or apartments are unwilling to take pets. But pets can add great joy to an owner's life. Joan Bowyer-John L.
