Start marketing your rental at least 30 days in advance, before your tenant moves out because this will give you plenty of time to find and screen the right tenant. Before showing your Houston Condo just make sure that you deliver a written notice to your tenant 24 hours in advance so they are aware that one or more individuals could be entering the rental with you to view the property.
Tip #2 – Improve Curb Appeal Now
Thankfully, you don’t have to wait 30 days to start improving the curb appeal for your Houston Condo or Apartment you can start making those improvements now. Some of the improvements you can make to the exterior of your condo include: painting the front door, power washing the patio or walkway, planting new flowers in pots outside of the rental and if it has a small yard you should clean up that yard space.
Once your tenant moves out you should schedule any inside maintenance to be done the day after your tenant is out of the rental property.
Tip #3 – Great Pictures And Video Will “Sell” The Rental
If you plan on marketing your rental property online you should have professional pictures and video taken of your rental property because great pictures and video will help to sell your rental property to the right tenants especially if you plan on marketing your rental property on websites like craigslist.org or har.com.
