If you’re buying a home for sale in Port Aransas and you’ve got four-legged family members, here’s what you need to know.
Buying a Home With Pets: What You Need to Know
Make sure you know local pet laws before you buy a home in a new town – and make sure that the homeowners association in your new neighborhood doesn’t have restrictions that will prohibit your furry friends.
Some HOAs and condos restrict the number and type of pets you can have, and nearly all of them describe how you must restrain your pets in common areas and how they must behave. Sometimes there are limits on the numbers of pets allowed in each home (in both subdivisions and condos), and in many cases, pets are only allowed on the first floor, in end units, or in units with balconies in condominium complexes. Many places have rules about barking pets, too, so check before you buy.
You also need to know about:
- Fence requirements
- Where to walk your pets
- Whether the floors in the home are good for your pets
- Whether the layout of the home is good for your pets
- Whether there are too many stairs for your pets
