Although the linked PDF is entitled “for Selling”, the tips apply just as well for preparing to Lease, or just making the home a more attractive, less cluttered and nicer place to live.
50 Home Tips – for Selling, Leasing or just Living
There are “tons” of articles about preparing a home for sale … a couple previously published on this website. I seldom take a look, not even briefly, but the title of this one offers “50” tips, and the author tag line indicates she has a total of 301. Really?? That would seem to require a good many of the “tips” to be rather trivial.
With that thought, I had to take a look. I don’t know about the other 251 (301-50), but the 50 in the linked PDF are all worth considering. You can check it out and download if you wish – just click this link … 50_tips_for_selling
