Step-by-Step Guide on Preparing Your Home for Renting

Preparation is key to a successful rental. Follow these steps to make your home attractive to potential renters and to avoid problems during the rental period.

  1. Renovation and repairs: Take a look at your home and see if there are any repairs that need to be made. Replace worn or broken items such as light fixtures, door handles, etc. Paint the walls and make sure all surfaces are clean and fresh.
  2. Furnishing: Consider furnishing the home if it is empty – with a flexible approach, you’ll attract more applicants. Renters want to see what the rooms look like and what their size is. Furniture can also make the home more appealing.
  3. Lighting: Ensure all lights are working and there is adequate light in each room.
  4. Cleaning: Make sure the home is clean and fresh. 
  5. Security: Check all locks and security features to make sure the home is secure.
  6. Improvements: Consider making some improvements such as installing a washing machine, dryer or a garden.
  7. Pricing: Pricing is important to get renters. Make sure the pricing is reasonable compared to other rentals in the area.
