Pet Friendly Communities in Boca Raton - The Questions to Ask Before You Buy A Home in the Boca Raton/Delray Beach area

                                         

Do you know the questions to ask  if Rosie or Budha or Coco will be accepted in one of the gated communities or condos in Boca Raton?   Before you sign that contract of sale, please read this post and ask these questions.   You don't want to find yourself owning a  home you love only to be told the community or condo doesn't accept pets or that your beloved pet is not welcome.   Sad to say, but this can and does happen.

Why, you ask?  Some of the ads and listings say "pet friendly communities."  What exactly does that mean?  Does  it mean the community or subdisision allows dogs ?  Do they allow one dog with a maximum weight restriction of up to 20 lbs or 25 lbs?  Do they allow one dog with a maximum weight restriction of up to 60 lbs?  Are two dogs allowed?  What are the weight restrictions for them?   Are three dogs allowed?

Are there breed restrictions?   Very often there are breed restrictions in gated communities in Boca Raton.   If you have what is considered a restricted breed, they are referring to pit bulls, rottweilers and, depending on the commmunity, there may be some other breeds involved.  Please plan on buying a house on a street and not in a gated community.   Gated communities and even some non-gated communities have breed restrictions.   A house on a street is a safe bet.

It's entirely possibly in Boca Raton, Delray Beach or the south Florida area that if you see pet restrictions they may be referring to one cat only

Please don't try to sneak your dog in.   Someone will undoubtedly see or hear him or her.  Even if they don't go outside, they bark.   If you have just one neighbor who is not an animal lover, you're bound to have problems with the homeowners or condo association.   Why do you want problems as soon as you move in? 

If it says one dog, two are not allowed.  Some associations on occasion make an exception but this is rare and not to be counted on.   The condo associations or homeowners associations make their rules.     It if says one dog up to 25 lbs maximum, they are not going to take your 80 lb lab.

There are gated communities and condos in Boca Raton that are truly pet friendly that will fit your needs and gladly welcome Sandy, Zen and Max.  You want to be comfortable in your new home and not have neighbors staring at you because your dog weighs 3 lbs too much.   

Boca Raton is pet friendly.  If you know the right questions to ask before you buy a home in one of the gated communities or condos, and you know  where to go.  To view pet friendly homes in Boca Raton, Delray Beach or any of the surrounding areas, please contact me.

Elyse, it shows how important it is to go over HOA and covenants. No surprises are the rule of thumb.

Good information.

Nick - Yes, it is.  However, when a consumer is looking, many of the listings say "pet restrictions" without going into further detail.

Thanks, Georgina!  I sure hope so!  Very often no one asks the questions and many of the listings merely say "pet restrictions."   It's not until later on that they find out.
