Pet Friendly Apartments for Rent | Home Properties

Pet friendly apartments

There are many factors to consider when choosing a new apartment. If you own a pet, one of the highest priorities is whether or not your new apartment lease will allow for a dog or cat. At Home Properties, we are happy to welcome your pets! (With a few restrictions and some fees.)

Renters who own a dog or cat are welcome at the majority of our communities throughout the Northeast and Illinois. Here at Home Properties, we know how strong the bond is with your pets. Your dog or cat is as much a part of your family as anyone else, and you need to find an apartment space they’ll love too. We get it!

So what makes Home Properties the ideal place for you and your pet? A number of our rental properties offer a patio or balcony where your furry members of the family can perch, get some air, and enjoy some scenery. In addition, most of our communities have wide, open grassy areas. Whether you’re out for a stroll with your canine or cuddling with your cat, Home Properties has the space that will keep your pet happy and healthy.

So if you are looking for a fantastic rental home, and you want to ensure your pets are happy too, give us a call for more information and schedule a tour today! See why living at one of Home Properties’ apartment communities is the best part of your pets’ day – other than when you come home, of course.
