Another Great Idea Heard From A Student
Instead of charging a larger deposit (that is tough for some people to pay) tell the renter the normal rent for two people is $2,000. Since you have a dog, we will charge no pet deposit, but the rent would be $2,050 per month. In most cases most of the pet deposit goes back to the tenant. After one year with this plan you have $600 to keep & most tenants stay longer. If there is any damage from the pets you take it out of the regular deposit. Really wish that I would have discovered this idea when I started.
