I have several new properties where the owners are relocating elsewhere and moving out of their home which I will be managing. This will be a very hectic time for them so taking as much of a load off of them is a benefit for us all.
In my initial property presentation, my frequent comment is that “I Can Do That For You!” I can:
1) have repairs and painting done so that the property shows BEST in photos and rental prospect viewings;
2) have the property cleaned PROFESSIONALLY after move-out so that the first renters will have a benchmark for their move-out cleaning standards AND I have a PAID bill to show a subsequent judge if the new tenant disputes my cleaning standards at move-out;
3) have the carpets cleaned PROFESSIONALLY and note the presence of pets so that the proper flea/tick solution can be added during the process; and
4) have the yards mulched, mowed and bushes trimmed.
In other words....I am bringing the property standards UP to my standards for my residents, documenting the condition AND providing evidence of these expenses in the owners’ cash flow statement for their taxes.
