|Does anyone know of any properties that might be available now or in the near future for rent? We seem to be having problems because we have two small dogs rather than just one. I don't seem to be able to get a straight answer from the real estate agents, before viewing the properties I do explain we have two and ask if that's a problem. Not once has it been said that it is a problem in properties that say pets negotiable, however, we have been declined on two properties for that reason. I am at my wits end now and beginning to worry as we only have 3 weeks left in our holiday rental.

|We have found that if you ask to move in and pay straight away it seems to better your application|

|What do you mean pay straight away?|

|A tip we heard from friends was to offer a bit more on the rent, if you can afford it...think they offered and extra $25/week in Como|

|You are asked what day you are wanting to move in.
If you put 3 weeks away to coincide with leaving your current acomodation then somone who is ready now may take preference.|

|I figured thats what you meant, have just completed the two apps offered a pet bond and suggested that we are prepared to move in sooner if required. Thanks for the tip

|I would not offer to pay more rent but maybe offering to pay 3 months upfront would help a landlord see beyond the pets!!
