If you have lived in Fort Collins over the past 10 years, you know that the real estate market is hot. If you have lived here for 10 seconds—you are also aware that those who attended and work at Colorado State University are a huge part of our economy. And—with spring and summer comes a huge shift in home sales and rental changes.
Students, transplants, families and all kinds of other people are on the move in and around Fort Collins, Loveland and the rest of Northern Colorado. With this busy season, Rainbow International is here to help property owners get their rental units and homes up and ready for the next tenant or move in. We want you to know what to look for so your property looks and sells at its best.
Start up High
After a tenant moves out, they often leave nails, holes and other things in the walls and ceilings. Make sure you go through and spackle, clean and a paint to make sure the walls look new and ready for the next person. Often a little dusting, soap and water go a long way.
While working on the walls, go through and wipe away all cobwebs, and check for cracks. This is also a good time to make sure all windows, windowsills, trimmings and blinds are clean, sparkling and in good repair.
Check the Appliances
No new tenant want to walk into a new place to a stinky fridge or funky dishwasher, make sure these are cleaned and functioning properly. Check hoses, and hookups for leaks and other damage. Not only will this keep your tenants happy it will also allow you to catch potential water damage before it becomes costly.
It’s all about the floors
One of the first things new tenants notice is the state of the floors. Thus after you clean the walls, check the appliances and make other repairs, making sure your floors are sparkling is essential. Check grout and tile for discoloring and then make sure your carpet smells good and is spot free.
Here at Rainbow International we specialize in carpet and hardwood floor cleaning, this way you can leave it to us to make sure your unit is perfect for your next tenant. If you trip over other problems such as mold, water or smoke damage never fear, we are here to make it right.
