  2. Maintain the structural integrity of the property
  3. Install smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors
  4. Track capital expenditures and other expenses related to maintaining the rental property
  5. Conduct bi-yearly or yearly inspections of the property 
  6. After tenant leaves, turnover property and prepare for showings
  7. If needed, and hopefully it’s not, conduct eviction process
  8. Create screening criteria to define what a “good tenant” is for your property
  9. Take photos of the property to list for rent
  10. Draft description of property for rental listing
  11. Analyze rent rates in the area
  12. Post rental listing on sites like Zillow, Facebook Marketplace,, etc.
  13. Review applications
  14. Schedule showings for those tenants who you think would be a good fit
  15. Conduct showings for potential tenants
  16. Negotiate pricing and lease options
  17. Create lease for tenants
