Getting your home rent ready. A few things to look for before marketing.
If you are moving and need to find a great tenant for your rental home, you might not know where to start. One of the first things you will need to do is ensure your home is "rent ready". Getting your home rent ready might require some financial and time investment, but it is worth it in the long run.
A) The longer your property sits vacant, the more money you lose. Having your home "rent ready" increases the chance you fill your vacancies quicker with the right marketing strategies for rental property managers.
B) Having a clean "rent ready" home is more likely to attract qualified renters who will keep your home well maintained and respect your property.

One of the first things that prospective renters will notice when they walk in your home is the walls. If there are marks, holes, and bad paint touch ups, it can turn them off and make your home look worn out. Strange/unique colors are also something that can potentially turn renters away from your rental home. Clean, neutral colors are ideal when appealing to the masses.
The most important thing to keep in mind is to keep things clean and neutral. Don't get too carried away in making things "unique or stylish", as this "style" may be just right for you, but not for others.
