You Are Responsible For Preparing The Home 

Once you have made the decision to rent out your home you’ve taken on the responsibility of providing a safe home for your tenants.

There are several things you need to do to get your home ready.

Make updates to the home so it appears as new as possible. Freshly painted rooms give a neater and cleaner appearance. Also, the more attractive the home is the more dollars you can expect in rent.

Most cities require a home inspection before you rent out your home for the first time. Check with local authorities for what is required in your area.

Make sure you have installed smoke detectors and taken steps to fireproof your home. You should also place a fire extinguisher in the kitchen and upstairs if there is one.

Also a carbon monoxide detector should be installed.

Fix any plumbing problems, water leaks, etc. Should you choose to keep the water bill in your name you might want to consider installing low flow showerheads to keep water usage to a minimum.

Make Sure To Ensure Safety For Your Tenants

Check out the electrical wiring or hire someone to do that to ensure safety.

If you have expensive light fixtures you might want to remove them and replace them with a lesser expensive fixture.
