Are you planning on renting your home for the first time?
With the real estate market slowing, many homeowners in the Central Valley are planning on postponing selling their homes and renting them out instead.
If you’re planning on renting your home for the first time, here are several tips that you can use to get your home ready for rent.
Tips For Renting Your Home
You need to prep your home like it’s going to be featured on HGTV. Here’s a list of things to get done
Make the home livable by decluttering and removing any valuables – This is important because your goal should be to remove all traces of your life from the home so that your future tenant sees it as a property they would be interested in renting.
Put a fresh layer of paint on the walls – Focus on choosing neutral colors because you want your future tenants to envision themselves living in your property without being distracted by the colors on the walls.
Check/replace heating and air conditioning filters – Replacing those filters is essential, especially during the summer months!
Clean windows – Having clean windows will make the property feel like it’s been well maintained by people who are interested in renting your home.
Fix anything that is broken – This is especially important because if a tenant finds something broken during a tour of the property, they may wonder what else is wrong with that property and not want to live there.
Check that all appliances are working – Always check the stove, air conditioner and dishwasher to verify that those appliances re working before a tenant tours the property.
Have the carpets professionally cleaned – Carpet cleaning is essential because it helps a property to look clean and fresh for tenants who tour the property for the first time.
