PREPARTION TO RENT 
FOR BEST RESULTS FOLLOW ALL OF THE ITEMS BELOW 
Most important to know - your property has to be shown to its potential tenants in 
excellent condition. Everything has to be as clean as possible - especially the kitchen 
appliances, cupboards, and bathrooms. 
Consider hiring a professional maintenance team to do the painting, cleaning and fix 
ups between tenancies. **** Providing a clean and habitable property is among your 
responsibilities as the rental lawful owner. 
Make sure your landscaping looks great for curb appeal. 
Look carefully to see if your mailbox or front door need cleaning, fixing or painting - 
First Impressions Last! 
Patios and walkways should be pressure cleaned. 
Repaint entire property interior with off-white paint. A semi gloss or satin paint is best 
as the walls of the residence can be washed when fingerprints and smudges appear. 
Increase the existing lighting by adding bright bulbs where needed. 
Replace old blinds if needed. Blinds must open and close properly 
Shampoo carpets for deep cleaning and deodorizing. 
Check all plumbing for leaks or water pressure. This way you can take care of 
problems prior to a tenant moving in. 
Clean professionally your air conditioning unit and add a clean filter. It is always 
advised to leave about 12 filters at the home for the new tenant to use during the 
year. 
You will attract the BEST tenants by doing the few things listed above. Sure this may 
cost a few dollars, but you will rent FAST.
