The Portland Oregon real estate market is literally on fire (like the rest of the United States) and it’s easy to see why any homeowner would want to sell their property but what if you don’t want to sell your home just yet?
If you’re on the fence about selling your property, you may want to consider renting it out instead.
Renting out your property offers you the flexibility and convenience of earning rental income from the property to pay for your mortgage while also being able to hold onto that property should you want to live in it again later.
Tips For Getting Your Property Ready For Rent
De-personalize – The first thing to do in order to get your property ready for rent is to depersonalize it. This means removing any personalized features that you’ve added to your home over the years so that when a renter visits your house, they will see it as just another rental property.
Paint – One of the best way to get a property ready for rent is fresh paint, inside and out. Painting is important because it cleans up a property and helps it to look fresh and clean for pictures / video.
Update – Does your property have some throwback features from the 90’s like gold furnishings? If so, before renting your property out, you should consider removing those furnishings and updating your property with new furnishings that will be more attractive and appealing.
Add amenities – Last of all, but most important. If your Portland home has a big back yard with space for a dog run or a large deck, you should consider adding amenities to make your property more attractive to prospective tenants.
