Getting your Property Ready for the Summer Rental Season

Now that the holidays are over, if you rent out your property for the season, you need to
get ready for the Realtors and clients to start looking at your homes. February is the time
to have pictures taken and get on the rental lists for the summer season.

There are a few things that you should do to get prepared.
1. Make sure that any repairs that need to be done are addressed. The leaking toilet
will only create more problems down the road.
2. Make sure that the home is clean. Inspect ceiling fans, wash the windows to let in
the light and check the out door gutters to make sure they are leaf free.
3. Depersonalize the space. Clients want to use this space as their own, not live in
your space.
4. Update the home with fresh paint, rugs, and inspect your furniture to make sure it
is in good and clean condition.
5. Make your home safe. Limit extension cords, have fire extinguishers available,
make sure that window treatments are secure, and make sure that heavy objects
such as televisions and tall bureaus are child safe.
6. Spruce up the outside of your home. Make sure that you do a check of your
outdoor furniture to see if it is in need of repair and ready for the season.

Hildreths Department Store is here to help you address all your needs. From linens,
furniture, lamps and accessories to outdoor furniture, we can create a beautiful space for
your summer clients.
