Are you planning on listing your Phoenix Rental Property online? If you’re like most landlords you’re going to be listing your rental property on Craiglist.org, hotpads.com Zillow or Trulia, but before listing you should get these 5 things done.
#1 – Inspect Your Phoenix Rental Property and Make Repairs
Regardless of how long your last tenant lived in your Phoenix Rental Property it’s important to have it inspected because, a full inspection will bring to light obvious problems that need to be fixed like electrical, flooring, or plumbing issues, and potential problems which cannot be seen to the naked eye.
#2 – Have Your Rental Property Thoroughly Cleaned
One of the “pet peeves” most people cite for not wanting to rent a property is the cleanliness of the unit so even if your last renter left your Phoenix Rental Property in excellent condition you should still call in your cleaning crew to have your rental professionally cleaned because this will also ensure that those hard to reach areas of your rental property are cleaned as well.
#3 – Inspect All Appliances
While you are having, your rental property cleaned and inspected you should also have all of the appliances evaluated, including ceiling fans, because if any of the appliances are out of date and ready to be replaced this will be a great time to get them replaced before new tenants move in.
#4 – Change Those Locks!
During the time that your Phoenix Rental is in between tenants, you should also change those locks because you just don’t know if your previous tenant made copies of keys and it’s also a great idea to have the locks changed to ensure that any old keys which may be floating around out there are rendered obsolete.
#5 – Think About Market Value
Once your rental property is ready to be listed online the last thing you should do is determine market value because rents in the area may have gone up since you last marketed your rental property and it can literally pay to research the market value of your rental before you post it online.
