If you have ever had to clean out and prepare a loved one's house to sell, you know how exhausting it can be. Even just getting it ready so they can move somewhere else can take a lot of time. Clearing out a place that someone has lived for any amount of time can be tiring, but the longer they've lived there the worse it often is. This isn't to say that there is no fun to be had in making small changes to a place, but when you're on a time limit things can get stressful. It's important to think about what needs to happen and what the best order to do them in is. It never hurts to make a list and check off the items as you go.
Move-in preparations are some of the most time consuming, yet mostly invisible actions that you can take in regards to a rental property. Take painting for example. Depending on the size of the rental space, painting can take forever. Cleaning can take even longer depending on the state the previous tenant left it in. You may want to set some time out to air the place after you're done painting as well, which also takes time.
People understandably expect things to be nice and clean when they walk into a rental property so they can view it, but never seem to think about how much work goes into getting it ready for that point. We all know that people will turn down an otherwise perfect apartment simply because it's dirty. For many people, it gives off the impression that the property owner doesn’t care enough about the tenants to make it presentable. Others may simply not want to have to clean up the mess left by a previous tenant. Regardless of why a tenant turns down an unclean apartment, the fact remains that there is something you can do to prevent that from happening to you. You could always just have Talley do it.
