Pet owners represent a large part of our market, especially for homes with 2 bedrooms or more. Typically, a family will rent these homes. Many families have children and pets. The pets are very important to these families and will determine if the family rents a home.
Many of our owners have expressed their concern about renting to families with a pet. The concern is that the pet will damage the home.
Stevens Realty has an answer for this: The Pet Protection Program.
The Pet Protection Program is our promise to you that if we place a pet in your property and they caused damage over and above the tenant’s security deposit amount, we will repair the damage out of our own pocket! This would be of no charge to you, no deductible… it is absolutely free! We will automatically provide $1,500 of coverage for one pet, $2,000 for two pets, $2,500 for three pets, and you can increase that coverage up to $3,000 for a nominal charge.
To fund this protection program, we will retain ALL of the pet fees that we collect from the tenants and provide coverage from the money collected from the tenants.
This Pet Protection Program is included in ALL of our long-term management agreements. We cannot guarantee against loss. The coverage stops if you cancel our management agreement. We will pay the difference between any security deposits up to the coverage amount to make sure that your home is being taken care of from damage caused by pets. For example, if the tenant has one pet and has a security deposit of $750, when the tenant leaves with pet-related damages in the property costing a sum of $1,500, the security deposit will cover the first $750 and Stevens Realty LLC will pay the remaining $750.
This protection applies to damage from cats and dogs of any breed and all other kinds of paying pets; It does not apply to service animals.
The program does not cover unapproved pets that the tenant concealed from us. Participation in the Pet Protection Program is of no charge to the owner and is required once you allow pets in your property.
