Helpful Hints for Renting in the Blue Mountains


Look over the following list of areas that may need attention when preparing the exterior of your property:

  • Lawn – Keep your lawns cut, with neat edges.  Reseed any bare patches and perhaps fertilise for additional colour.
  • Shrubs/Trees  – Trim branches where necessary, especially around windows to allow natural light into the house. Remove any dead limbs.
  • Garden Beds – If appropriate, plant colourful flowers. Also add mulch to beds and remove all weeds. Perhaps place showy annuals in pots near the house entrance.
  • Paths – Keep all paths swept.
  • Windows – Repair any broken windows and wash all glass.
  • Eaves – Wash and remove spider webs.
  • Drains/Spouts – Unblock and clean.
  • Paintwork – Attend to any flaking paint after discussion with your agent.
  • Doors – Wash down your front door and its surrounds, polish brass fitting and repair any torn fly wire.
  • Fences – Straighten, repair or repaint only after discussion with your agent.
  • Junk/Rubbish – Remove all junk and rubbish, e.g. car parts.
  • Pools/Ponds – Make sure these are clean.
  • Garage – Keep your garage door closed.
