Pet Friendly Rentals and Condos | Boston
January 10th, 2020
Pets are a necessity for many people but finding a home that accommodates a pet is a difficult task in the Boston Area. The number of Boston residents owning dogs alone has almost tripled since 2012 from 2,700 to nearly 7,000. Clearly, there is a need for pet friendly housing so here are the top luxury residences that are pet-friendly in Boston, MA.
Rentals and Condos
Pet friendly policies may vary from building to building. For a luxury apartment residence owned by one entity, there will be a building policy in place for all residents. For a luxury condo, which are individually owned, there may be a building policy as well as an owner policy for each individual condo unit. Depending on the type of building you choose to live in you may have to go through one hurdle or two hurdles to find a home for you and your pet.
Millennium Place (Downtown Boston; Condominium)
Millennium Place Boston begins our list with having a 2 pet, specifically dog or cat maximum. Since this is a condominium residence your Realtor can directly contact the condo unit owners to obtain a more accurate pet policy for each specific residence.
