How To Prepare Your Rental Property For Tenant Occupancy

Getting your home rent ready can be a bit stressful, but here is a checklist that you can follow to make sure your rental property is ready for new tenants to move in.


Clean your carpets, windows, walls, bathrooms, etc. so that your new tenants have a fresh home to move into.


Double check all of your property’s windows, appliances, and safety features to ensure that everything is working properly. It’s also important to test all of the home’s lights, outlets, and water faucets. We always want to make sure the home is in great condition for the next tenants!


If you find anything off during the testing phase, go around the house and replace locks, air filters, batteries, and anything else that may need replacing. Most importantly, change the locks. You don’t want past tenants getting into the home if they still have old keys!


Once everything has been cleaned, tested, and replaced, go around the house once more to freshen up the paint, carpets, flooring, landscaping, and other items to make the property look as good as new!

Following this list is so important for you as a landlord. Following these recommended steps will help you receive the maximum amount of passive income as possible.
