How to Prepare Your Property for the Rental Market – Fort Wayne Management Tips from a Professional


Properly preparing your home for the rental market is an important part of getting it rented quickly to great tenants. Before you do any Fort Wayne rental marketing, you need to make sure you have a great property to offer. Today, we’re sharing some tips on how to do that.

Inspect Your Property

First, make sure you do a thorough inspection of your property. It’s important to understand the condition of the home so you can make any improvements or repairs if necessary. You’ll need to know what’s going on with the exterior of the home, the interior, and all of the main appliances of the home.

Remove Clutter and Belongings

Second, make sure you remove any and all of your personal items from the property. If you had been living in the home previously or you stored items at the home, you’ll need to get them out of the house. Once you turn the property over to a tenant, the tenants cannot be held responsible for anything that happens to those items. Also, a cluttered home just does not show as well on the marketplace. People who are considering your property want to see space for their things, and they don’t want to maneuver around what the owner left behind.

Thorough Cleaning

A thorough cleaning is absolutely essential; I cannot emphasize this enough. Hire a professional cleaner to go through the home. The cleaning standards for when people move in are a lot higher than what the place will look like once they start living there. Hire both a professional cleaner and a good carpet cleaner. A little dirt will turn away a great tenant.

Habitability and Safety

Finally, check all the safety systems. Make sure you have the requisite number of smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. You’ll also want to explain to your tenants how to properly take care of the home once they sign their lease and move in.
