Pet Icon for Rental Listings

01 February 2012
The website has just become the first real estate portal in Australia that clearly shows when a rental property will allow pets.
The new 'paw print' icon appears alongside the icons for number of bedrooms, bathrooms and parking bays on a listing.
Prospective tenants with pets can now look for suitable accommodation on the Institute's website by specifically searching for pet-friendly properties, or simply by scrolling through the listings to look for the paw print.
REIWA President David Airey said property managers recognised that most tenants are responsible pet owners
and encouraged landlords to be open minded about accepting them. "This situation will always be negotiated by the land owner and pet owner, but it's encouraging that this initiative has been endorsed by the RSPCA," Mr Airey said.
