So, you’ve decided to rent out your investment property! Now that this exciting choice has been made, the work begins. The prep work that you will need to put into your soon-to-be rental home is just as essential as the decision to rent it out. The Iron Eagle Property Management team is here to make sure that every little detail is taken care of so you don’t have to. As experts in investment property rentals, we have a list of some of the biggest prep work items that need to be on your checklist; check it out! 

Thorough Cleaning

Nobody wants to show up to tour their potential new home and find that they are going to have to do an immense amount of cleaning before they can even move in. Doing a thorough cleaning before tenants show up will drastically improve the appearance of your home. There are numerous things to clean and you may be worried about forgetting something. Not to worry, there are many checklists that can help you remember even the tiniest details!

Ensure All Appliances Are Working

Double checking that all appliances are working properly will save you, your property manager, and the new tenants time and money. From the oven and fridge to the washer and dryer, verifying that everything is up and running smoothly or upgrading older appliances can also add value to your property. While you’re looking at the appliances, you might also want to take a look at all faucets and drains to confirm there are no leaks or clogged pipes! 

New Coat Of Paint

A fresh coat of paint is one of the easiest ways to brighten the appearance of a home. Did you know there are actually ways to use paint to make your home appear more spacious? The lighter colors draw light into the room to give it a more open look. Warm, neutral colors can make it easier for potential renters to see their own furniture in the home! Not only can paint do wonders for the interior of your home, but new colors on the exterior are also beneficial – first impressions are everything, and repainting the exterior can give you the curb appeal that attracts renters. Fresh paint can give a home new life and help new renters feel more at home!
