Yes you can have a condo and pets too

Many people assume that if they live in a downtown condo they won’t be able to have pets. There are condo buildings throughout the city that do not allow pets. I had a listing in a building that only allowed fish and no other pets.

In another building dogs are not allowed because members of the homeowners association believe that allowing dogs would create too much noise and that owners might be able to hear dogs walking in the hardwood floors. Cats are allowed.

Other buildings allow dogs but only 1 or they have size and weight limits which favor small dogs over large dogs. So far I have not seen a building that allows dogs but not cats.

It is easy to find out about pet restrictions before seeing a condo for sale. In Minnesota condo buyers have 10 days to review condo documents which include rules and restrictions before making a final commitment to purchase. Those documents should be read carefully.
