Should I cancel my utilities after I move out?
No.. Make sure to leave the utilities in your name until transferring over to the new tenant when they move in. If you cancel, there is a risk of damage during cold weather (i.e. Plumbing, appliances, sump pumps, damaging pluming, appliances, and it’s a lot more work getting them turned back own as a “new” service under the tenants name.
We are still living in the home.. Should we move out.. or try to rent while I still live here?
We strongly recommend hat the house be vacant and rent ready at the time the advertising goes out. Statistics show a clean, spacious (no furniture), rent ready home allows the buyer to see the home at the spur of the moment and envision the home as their own. Being vacant also allows tenants a quick 2-4 week move-in date.

Yes, you should maintain a landlord policy on the property. The tenants can’t carry homeowners insurance since they don’t own the house, but we mandate all tenants to carry renters insurance for personal their belongings. It’s always a good to contact your insurance agent and let them know your renting the house and make sure you are protected.

Today. It’s never a good thing to wait until the last minute, especially in today’s current economy. It’s a perfect time to start lining up prospective tenants.
I see other agents rent out homes. How how do you differ from them?
All our firm does is property management – we do not sell houses!  Unfortunately, there are many agents and brokerages that have ZERO property management experience and definitely not specializing in the rental of single family homes.   Often desperate sales agents decide to become temporary property managers (a word of caution: they might not be insured to manage properties) in slow market periods.  Our staff are NOT subcontractors – they are paid EMPLOYEES.
