Transforming a House into a Rental: How to Prepare

  • Written by News Company

Renting out your home means you become a landlord, and you have probably got dollar signs in your mind. However, how do you prepare your home for rental? According to Richardson and Wrench Noosa rentals figures, over 32 percent of Australian households are renters.

The figures show that there is an opportunity to provide a service that many want. However, before you put up a ‘for rent’ sign and advertise your property, take your time to prepare the house. Below are critical steps to prepping the rental property and attracting high-paying tenants.

The inspection

The first step involves removing everything from your home and thoroughly inspecting it for potential minor and major problems. Some potential issues you need to take care of immediately include:

  • A leaking roof
  • Leaky pipes or faucets
  • Burnt-out bulbs
  • Cracks in the driveway
  • Clogged or sagging gutters
  • Faulty electrical outlets
  • Plus, make sure the floors are sound

Once done, call in Richardson and Wrench rentals experts, who will carry out a realistic appraisal of your property to ensure your asking price is right for you and prospective tenants.

Consider safety

Provide your tenants with a safe living place. If renting part of your home, separate and secure the rental property from the rest.

Also, install smoke detectors or ensure that they are in good working condition. Installing a fire extinguisher in the kitchen or on each floor—for a multi-story property—shows tenants that you are serious about their safety.

Clean up

After the inspection and repairs are done, prepare your home like it is going to be featured on TV! This means:

  • Removing your valuables and decluttering the space
  • Putting on a fresh coat of paint
  • Cleaning the windows
  • Having carpets professionally cleaned
  • And spraying for pests

Thorough cleaning easily transforms your house into one of the best rental properties Noosaville has, increasing your chances of snagging a tenant quickly a hundred-fold!

What about appliances and furnishings?

If there are valuable fixtures or furnishings you wouldn’t want to be damaged or stolen, remove them from the rental. Make sure that everything is clean and in good working condition in a furnished rental home. While renting your home with appliances can boost the rental price, it might cost you in case of frequent maintenance or repairs.

Property management

If you intend to manage the rental property, get a legal lease document that covers you and the tenant. However, there is always the option of contracting a professional property management company.

A reputable permanent rentals Noosaville company charges a small percent of the monthly rent due for their services. These include:

    • Screening tenants
    • Managing repairs and maintenance
    • Handling tax payments
  • And dealing with evictions when necessary
