Why should humans be the only species with control over a dog's domain? Trulia announced this week that they've developed sales and rental "pawperty" listings that divulge the details that pets really care about when finding a furever home.
According to Trulia's blog post about the new pet centered service, the listings will feature large, immersive photos as well as details particularly pertinent to pets displayed prominently up top, like how many litter boxes or doggy doors each pawperty has. Also noted are "neighborhood petmenities" that include rankings for fire hydrants, bird watching, pet stores, big trees, and parks.
The listings also get a PetScore, an overall ranking of how pawsitively pet friendly the neighborhood is. In fact, Trulia went and ranked the most pet positive cities across the country.
Among the 100 largest U.S. metros, each metro was ranked based on three factors: the percentage of land area devoted to parks, the percentage of pet friendly rentals on Trulia, and the number of pet amenities per household listed on Yelp. The scores were averaged, generating a PetScore value out of 100 for each metro. Denver takes the top spot with a PetScore of 89.3—it has more than two designated dog parks, 3.1% open park space and 120 pet amenities. San Diego ranks number two at 88.5.
