Clean the property.

Make sure the property is in great condition; it sets the tone for the condition you want the Tenant or Tenant-Buyer to treat and maintain your property. If you're OK with dirty windows and floors, they won't care about that or other things either.

Things to clean probably include:

  • Kitchen including behind and underneath appliances like the strove and refrigerator
  • Clean inside refrigerator, oven and microwave
  • Bathrooms
  • At a minimum vacuum the carpet (ideally have the carpets cleaned if needed)
  • Sweep and pressure wash the garage and driveway
  • Clean windows inside and outside
  • Mow the lawn, trim shrubs and neaten landscaping
  • Clean out the gutters
