Landlords are charging tenants pet rent and $600 fees, according to a recent MarketWatch article. And with the higher cost of everything right now, pet owners feel that extra pinch. 

On this week’s episode of The Real Word, Byron and Nicole discuss the topic of pet rent, along with an Inman piece on how Opendoor is exactly where Zillow Offers was a year ago.  

The “Left, Middle, Right” segment touched on a few related articles, starting with a WSJ post, “Gambling, Marijuana and Taxing the Rich Will Be on Midterm Ballots.”
