Complete Spring Maintenance

Staying ahead of any potential maintenance issues not only helps protect your property but also saves you money. Spring is the perfect time to walk through your home and see if any outstanding items need to be addressed before new tenants move in. Check the home for any winter storm damage, such as roof leaks, siding damage, or insulation issues. Have your AC and furnace tuned up in preparation for the summer. Test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to ensure proper functionality and replace them as needed. Be sure to install them in all the proper places as well. And last but not least, start forming a plan for updating your curb appeal. Focus on updating the landscaping, such as getting the lawn ready, and ensuring the exterior of the home isn’t in disarray.


Complete Any Needed Updates

Tenants come in all shapes and sizes. Each of them value different things when looking for their perfect home. But there are a few trends that remain consistent in what renters want most in a rental home. While you can’t control the location and offered amenities, you can control the way your rental home looks. Updated kitchens, wood or laminate flooring, and stainless steel appliances; all of these are things renters look for when evaluating a potential rental home. Do what your budget will allow to make your home stand out, such as adding a fresh coat of paint or updating the flooring.
