First of all, investigate the entire property to determine which areas require repair and restoration. Make a list and then proceed to repair each area. Your property needs to be structurally sound. You can engage a local contractor to take care of all the repairs.
Making sure that your rental space is clean involves more than just emptying the garbage. You need to make sure that the bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms and the living area are clean and tidy. Get a cleaning crew to go through the entire property and ?power wash? it entirely.
Once you?ve cleaned the entire property, paint it. Make sure that you paint both the interior and the exterior. If you choose pastel colours, you?ll be able to give your property a sense of space. Usually, white always works for the interior.
No one wants to share their living space with bugs. Fumigate the property to get rid of ants, cockroaches and ticks. Drain all standing water to prevent mosquitoes from multiplying. Proper drainage facilities will help keep at least some of the mosquitoes away.
Check the plumbing
Hire a plumber to go through the plumbing and fix whatever problems he or she finds. You need to make sure that the toilets flush properly and the water pressure is sound.
Check the Electrical wiring
Hire an electrician to make sure that all is in order. You would not want your guests to be inconvenienced by a circuit breaker flip that goes off whenever they try to use the microwave.
