Preparing your investment property for lease
It is vital that the property be presented to the tenant in a safe, clean and tidy manner with all external areas maintained neatly. If the property is not presented well it may also detract from tenants viewing the property or prevent applications which may then delay the leasing of your property.
Our office provides you with an extensive checklist that can help you prepare your property for leasing. Listed below is a basic outline of what should be carried out prior to marketing your property for rent;
– Clean the property thoroughly from top to bottom, inside and out
– Fix and repair any maintenance issues
– Lawns are mowed and tidy, weeds are pulled
