As a renter, you’re probably accustomed to filling out a rental application. But what do you do when you get to the question that asks if you have a pet? Some property managers immediately disregard an applicant that has pets because they are known to cause more wear and tear on the home.
To prevent this from happening, you can create a pet resume that highlights all the qualities of your furry friend. A pet resume, much like a human resume, discusses your pet’s history and personality. It includes a section for references from veterinarians or your past landlord so that others can attest to their good nature.
Including a pet resume with your application will show that you are organized and will go above and beyond to take care of your pet. To create one of your own, ApartmentGuide has a pet resume builder. Read through their instructions on what to include and then build your own. This quick interactive allows you to upload a cute photo of your freshly pampered pup as well as highlight your pet’s unique characteristics and winning qualities. Download your resume and send it to the property manager and you should have your dream apartment in no time!
