Preparing your property for lease.

This is a quick reference of things to do to prepare the property for marketing.

  • Completely clean the property (see list below).
  • Remove bags of garbage, clothes, food, newspapers, furniture, appliances, dishes, plants, cleaning supplies or other items.
  • Have 3 sets of keys made.
  • Keep power and water on during vacancy in owners’ name.
  • Deliver garage door remotes in working order.
  • Maintain lawn care during vacancy while marketing.
  • Interior should be freshly painted a neutral color.
  • Carpets should be professionally cleaned.
  • Clean a/c system thoroughly
  • We recommend a home inspection to uncover any pre-existing problems.
  • The property may also be a good candidate for a Home Warranty.


Our policy is to charge a re-key fee of $60 per lock if keys are not provided and cleaning charges are $25/hr for professional cleaning.
