Is Your Property Ready to Rent? Part 1

Whether you are new to the landlord business or you’ve been doing it for years, it’s important to always understand just what it takes to make a home ready to rent. Real Property Management helps people in Arkansas and around the country to rent out new build homes and beyond. We know what it takes to make your property rent-worthy. When you hire us as property managers, we can help you get it right!

In the next few blogs, we will go over the major things that need to be done to a home before it is rentable. There are many small details that are best handled by an expert from Real Property Rental, but as landlord, you should know what needs to be done. If you work with new build homes, you may not have to do all these items, but they should each be checked anyway.

Redo the locks

  • Re-key all exterior doors and change codes for the garage door and alarm. Don’t forget the mailbox, side gate, and shed.

Have the home professionally cleaned

  • Hire a company to clean your home top to bottom. You will be able to rest assured that new tenants will be pleased with the results.

Touch up the yard

  • Either hire someone or take the time to mow the grass, pull the weeds, prune the trees, and add some flowering plants if the season is right.

Don’t forget the fans!

  • This is especially important if you are renting an older property. Fans build up dust and can be a nasty surprise for new tenants. Make sure they are clean!

Like we said before, the experience of a professional from Real Property Management will make preparing a your home much easier. Contact our experienced company today!
