Tips For Renting Your Portland Oregon House For The First Time


Are you planning on renting your Portland Oregon House for the first time because you recently purchased another home in the PDX area and would like to earn rental income?

This is an excellent position to be in because you can continue to enjoy the benefits of owning real estate while also earning passive income from that property every month.

If you’re unsure about renting your home, this article will provide you with tips on how to rent your Portland Oregon Home for the first time.


Tip #1 – De-Personalize The Property

Even though you may have lived at the address for many years, the reality is that it’s not technically your ‘home’ while it’s a rental property.

This means that you should remove all personal touches from the property so that when you enter the home, it feels like a ‘product’ that can easily be lived in by someone else.

Tip #2 – Clean, Repair, And Replace

Has it been a while since you cleaned, repaired, or upgraded parts of your home? If so, now is the time to take an assessment and start cleaning, repairing, and replacing areas of your home that need upgrading before you rent the Oregon property out for the first time.

Some areas to consider improving at your property include:

  • Landscaping
  • Flooring
  • Cabinets and drawer hardware
  • Fencing
  • Exterior Paint

Tip #3 – Make Improvements To Improve The Desirability Of The Property

Last of all, but most important, you should also take an assessment to determine what can be improved at the property.

Example: Does your property have a patio, dog run, space for parking an RV, landscaped back yard, swimming pool, or new wiring for internet and cable? If not, these are just some areas that can be improved to make your property more attractive to renters.
