Creating your Rent Ready Checklist – Explained by an Orlando Property Manager

Jobe Peterson - Tuesday, June 26, 2018

Getting your property rent ready is the crucial first step in successfully renting it out. Today, we’re talking about what we include on our rent ready checklist.

Orlando Property Management Company Checklist

On our website, we have a rent ready checklist that we ask our property owners to use when they’re preparing to rent out their home. Review this document before you do a rent ready walk through with us. There are some important sections there, including:

  • Property safety and security
  • Repairs
  • Cleaning

This is important, so please go through the list and check off each item. If you have any questions, reach out to us. In addition to providing resources like this checklist, we can also provide a free rental analysis and consultation. 

Orlando Rent Ready Checklist: Curb Appeal 

First, when you’re getting ready to rent out your property, you have to address curb appeal. This is the first thing residents will notice. Make sure the property is looking good and free of debris. 

Changing the Locks for New Tenants

Have the property rekeyed or get the locks changed before your new tenants move in. This ensures the property is safe for that new resident. 

Orlando Rent Ready Checklist: Cleaning

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms to your new tenants. Make sure the appliances are thoroughly cleaned inside and out. You want to pull them away from the walls and clean behind them. Cabinets and drawers need to be deep cleaned as well. This will set the standard for your property and ensure your residents maintain it and keep it clean. 

These are just a few of the things you’ll want to pay attention to on your rent ready checklist. Feel free to visit our website and download our rent ready checklist.
