Dog owners in the capital might have a hard time finding properties to rent because of their furry companions, which could make it a good idea to to buy a home for sale in Washington, D.C.
According to the Washington Post, the homes that are available in the city to dog owners are often undersized and overpriced, leaving them with cramped living conditions. While households with small dogs might have a bit more leeway, it's owners of dogs that are more than 75 pounds that have the greatest obstacles.
Rather than going after a rental, dog owners may want to examine the townhouse and condominium markets inside the Beltway. These sectors tend to be more lenient when it comes to animals, and few of them have implemented restricted-breed lists.
Home prices in Washington, D.C., fell 1.6 percent in December on an annual basis, according to the most recent Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller Home Prices Index. With this in mind, prospective buyers, both with and without dogs, may want to consider making an investment.
