One of the biggest deterrents when leasing out a property is cleanliness. If a rental unit is not very clean, it will not show well and leave the prospective tenant with a bad impression. People often associate cleanliness with maintenance and a home that feels or looks dirty also comes across as not being well maintained. A clean home can make a huge difference in the amount of time it takes to lease out a home, the quality of the tenant, and the amount of rent you receive.
Another important reason to have your investment cleaned professionally is that it helps establish a standard that the tenant must then follow. One way to look at it is that it’s a onetime investment. Once it’s done, the tenant is supposed to return it in the same clean condition. If they don’t, then our Hawaii property management team can use a portion of the tenant’s security deposit towards a professional cleaning service.
