My wife and I are thinking of relocating due to the cost of living on long island. We think most likely we would rent first before buying a house just to make sure we really like the area.

We are heading down next week to check things out and would like to look into some apartments. We need to find one that would allow 2 small dogs ~15lbs each (mini dachshunds). We would like to find something in a safe area and preferably not too expensive as we only want to be there 3-6 months before we bought a house.

Thanks,

Steve

I think you'll find that many apartments here permit pets - the variable will be the feel they charge you to have them. I was in your position last year, and found fees ranging from $200 to $700, most of them non-refundable, with many of them also charging a monthly pet rent. I ultimately settled on The Columns at Wakefield in N. Raleigh - they charged me $400 for my dogs, and that's it - no additional rent, no additional fee should I extend my lease beyond a year, etc.

As far as the short-term lease thing, that I can't speak to. I knew I wanted to rent for at least a year.

I just rented at Camden Crest -- near Glenwood Ave and Lynn Road. They have a $250 refundable pet fee plus a $250 nonrefundable pet fee. No pet rent. Their leases start at 3 months.

I haven't moved in yet, so I can't give you an experienced review. But the apartments seem nice and the common areas are nice.

Try some of the apartments in Cary and Morrisville, lots of them allow pets for a reasonable fee you can look up on apartments.com . The deposits are usually nonrefundable and they charge a nominal rent per month.

Northridge Crossings, my home, is pet friendly. Reaspnable fees.

We love dogs and cats except traditionally aggressive breeds.

OOOPS, that would Vista at the Park - in Cary. Sorry for the error. We're actually moving there until our house is completed. I'd better the name straight.

Thank you for the replies, I'll be sure to check these apartments out when I'm down next week. If anybody has any others feel free to keep them coming.

Montecito in North Raleigh loves cats and small dogs. My daughter and her cat monsters live there.

Older but good if budget is an issue.

Default fellow mini dachshund owner- apartment suggestion

Deez-
We moved from Florida (same basic situation you're looking at) and rented at Alexan Place at South Square (in southwest Durham) for 9 months ---6 months plus 3 months month-to-month til we sold our FL house and moved into our NC home. We have one mini dachshund, smooth black and tan- she's a little fireball, etc. etc.! Alexan is very petfriendly and the deposit for a the dog wasn't pricey. They put poop bags out by little trashcans around the property, and also have a small dogpark on the south end of the property. Never heard neighbors, so I think the walls are pretty well insulated. Being in an apt, we were quick to stem tide if our girl barked. Big voice!
Anyway, Alexan has good folks. 2BR/2bath --1100 sf-- started at around $850.00 Not bad at all. You can bring your dog into the main apartment office also when picking up packages, paying rent, whaterver- they're very pet friendly.
Best wishes,
Mike
