How to prepare your home for renters

August 28, 2014

Here are a few ways you can prepare your home for renters.

There are a variety of reasons that you might need to rent out your home – a new job opportunity, financial problems, purchasing a new space. But no matter why, you will first need to make sure that the structure is in top shape for the tenant that you choose to let move in.

There are a whole laundry list of tasks that will need to be completed before you hand over the keys, which will ultimately benefit you if and when you choose to move back into the space at a later date in the future.

Here are a few tips for getting your house renter ready:

  • Check all the plumbing: You should have a professional come in to look at the indoor and outdoor plumbing systems in your house to make sure that everything is in working order. The last thing you want is a call from your tenants saying that the toilets won't flush or the kitchen sink is stopped up.
  • Replace the air filters: Especially during the summer, your tenants will want the HVAC unit working efficiently. Before moving out, make sure that each air filter has been changed and a fresh one is in place.
  • Repaint the walls: If it has been several years since the last coat of paint has been added to your walls, it is time for a fresh one. Try and go for something neutral, as you don't want any overbearing colors taking over a space.

If you are in the middle of prepping your home for renters, schedule an appointment with a Virginia contractor from John C. Flood, Inc. today! We offer a wide range of services that will help ensure your house is in perfect move-in condition.
