Making sure that everything is functioning properly will give you peace of mind and make things easier if anything needs fixed later.

Code Compliance

It is a good idea to make sure that your house is as safe as possible before tenants move in. We recommend getting a home inspection to show that everything is compliant. This shows your renters that you are a good landlord and sets the expectation for them to be good tenants. Here are our tips for finding a good home inspector.

If something should happen, you will have the peace of mind that you are protected. A good agent can make this process easy. Here’s how to find an insurance agent.
