There are a lot of rental options in the beach town of Carlsbad from magnificent ocean front homes and condos to traditional style homes in well established neighborhoods. Many of the requests that we get are for those looking for a rental that accepts pets. This is always a tricky thing to navigate as many landlords don't want to have to deal with damage that may occur in relation to having a pet. There are some landlords that are very pet friendly and have advertised there home as available for those renters that do have pets. Those listings are few and between and are listed here. There is also a selection of rental properties were the owner is open to negotiating on pets. These are typically the best types of rentals for pet owners as they might be able to negotiate a large dog when otherwise it would not be accepted.
When sending an application for a rental property we always recommend taking photos of the pet. This shows the landlord the type of pet you have and the size. A lot of landlords will shy away from large dogs or those of a certain breed. If you can show multiple photos and even have a video available this is also a huge plus. In addition to this we also recommend that you type a letter about yourself and why you are looking for a rental property. Describe your situation and also include how much you love the home you are applying for. Just like having a photo of your pet we also recommend sending in a photo of yourself so the owner can have a good idea who he/she will be renting to. Having this introduction goes a long way, especially if you have a lower credit score. Always explain your current FICO score and living situation. It's always best to offer full disclosure.
Showing rental properties is tough and most real estate agents don't like to deal with it due to the lower commission rate. Finding a quality agent who specializes in rental properties is the key to helping you find the ideal property. We work with a lot of rental clients and would love to assist you as well.
