Were you planning on selling your Central Valley home but now you’re considering hanging onto it and using it as a rental property instead? If so, you’re making a smart choice.
In this article, we will provide you with several tips you can use for turning your home into an income property.
Tip 1 – Paint Everywhere
Once you’ve moved out of your Central Valley home it’s vital that you look at the home as a “product” that you want to rent instead of your beloved family home that you used to live in. This can be accomplished by painting everywhere inside the home and the exterior of your home if it’s needed.
A gallon of paint is so inexpensive these days and can literally go the extra mile at brightening up any space and making it look clean / inviting.
Tip 2 – Fix Anything That’s Broken or Missing in The Home
From missing light bulbs to broken trim inside your Stockton home you should take the time to fix anything that’s broken or missing inside of your home because doing so will make it easier for a property management company like RPM Central Valley to rent your home when you’re ready.
Tip 3 – Decide On If You Will Leave the Appliances or Take Them with You
Yes, it’s true that most landlords don’t rent properties with washers and dryers but in your case, you may want to consider leaving those appliances with the home because it may make your property managers job of renting your home a lot easier especially if a tenant sees that it comes with a washer and dryer.
Tip 4 – Hire A Property Management Company
After following the steps in this article, one of the very best things that you should do is hire a Central Valley Property Management company to professionally manage your home for you.
Why? The answer is simple. A property manager will save you the time, money and hassle of managing your home yourself and ensure that your home remains a cash producing asset for years to come.
