Well some may be moving to new area, have to upgrade, or downsize. There’s a reason normally for the move. While you’re thinking what about my furry child be it a cat or dog. It’s hard living with a pet these days if you are renting. Either you aren’t allowed pets, you have to pay extra, or you get the one lucky place that doesn’t mind. But if you can’t find that magical place then comes the question that’s the hardest, what do I do?
So begins the search of a rental. You find out you have to pay extra for the pet. Extra security and extra for rent. You start thinking is it worth putting that much money in? Or you keep finding places that just say no!
So then you start thinking, do I have to find a new home for the furry family member. (I use family member because that’s exactly what they are.) And of course, you want a safe home for them that will be loving to them. They are already sensing the tension of the move. So you want to make it easy for them too. The last resort is the local shelter.
Well then, instead of renting, have you thought of buying? You can almost have the same payments as you pay for rent. It’s just making sure you are checking everything and such. Have a good lender and such who can help you out. Have a real estate broker who understands what you are looking and what you can afford after you talk to a lender.
This way you are no longer renting and have home for the whole family. Or if it’s just you and your pet, still a great thing for the future.
Also if you are buying in the city of Albany, you can only have 2 dogs older than 8 weeks old. Once you are in the outer areas, you can have more. So make sure to look up what the policy is where you decide to move.
