Be Cautious When your Property is Being Visited for Rent: Keep these 5 Things in your Mind
How many times it has happened that you might not have been available over there when your property is being visited? Being an owner comes with lots of responsibilities. You not only have to take care of your property but also maintain it from time to time.
Safeguard your property from the time it is "renting out" to "being rented".
Here are the things you need to ensure before letting a prospective tenant enter into your rental property:
Background information of the Tenant
Ask basic details from your prospective tenant so that you can have an idea about the background of the person. You should have prior information before letting a stranger into your property. Also to cut back your time over the meetings get to know about the financial background of the person. This is how you can screen the prospective tenant before meeting to save your time over various meetings.
Maintenance of the property
“The presentation always matters”. No one is going to look at your home if it is too shabby disorganized and left out untouched for a longer duration. So, maintain the property with white wash and declutter the space by removing the waste that is of no use to you. This will also help you out in getting the property rented faster.

Availability of the Owner
Showing your property to the prospective tenant cannot be managed every time as you might be running under a busy schedule. You cannot manage the meeting every time, else you will miss out some important work of yours.
