My husband and I are looking for a house or townhouse to RENT and are having a very hard time finding one with a fenced in yard. We have two dogs and the few properties we have found with fenced in yards all have a no pet policy. Does anyone know of any properties or a good place to search? We are looking in Raleigh/Apex/Morrisville.

I've been looking for the same, though in different areas - how firm are you on the areas? I know of two for rent but one is north of Hillsborough and one is in North Durham.

Scott's Mill in Apex has some and they look like a decent size as well.

Was looking for this on craigslist last year but had to stay in a certain school district and very few had fences. I just asked the owners about installing a fence and most were willling to consider this if I helped pay for it in some way - a couple said I would have to pay for all of it, one said I could pay for all of it then he would cut the rent by $50 per month, one wanted my to pay for lumber and he and his friend would build it, one wanted $500 (out of about $2000 total cost) and another wanted $100 more per month on a 6 month lease. So, you may have more options if you ask. Around here fences often appraise above cost so a smart landlord should be happy to install one if they had some incentive or assistance.

It might not hurt to ask a landlord to reconsider accepting pets -- if you have excellent credit, solid employment, and valid references.

We, as landlords, did that, and even though we're not thrilled with renting to people with a dog, the tenants are otherwise excellent, so we were flexible.
