Once you are headed to it being a rental it needs to be looked at as a business where things people won't pay for has you not doing them. At least for places I have lived a perfect yard and irrigation system won't increase the rent much.

What amazes me (as a realtor) is the amount of people who will put their homes up for sale, doesn't matter if it's $300k or $1.4mil, and don't clean up there exterior better.
Pressure washing is easy and takes a few hours (can rent the equipment or buy pretty cheap), and having your pavers on your driveway clean, will really help that house show that it's worth the price you're listing at.

So many people don't bother with that and man will it make a difference. I recommend to my clients to look into it.

Yeah we do the roof as infrequently as possible because it isnít good for the life of the roof or gutters. I will definitely never have anyone walk on the roof to clean it again. The pavers and sidewalk donít even need pressure cleaning very often if you just spray them down with chlorine every 6 mos. or so. One thing I hate about pressure cleaning is when they apply pressure between the pavers and dig out the sand between them, which then requires replenishing and leaves sand everywhere. Everyone thatís ever done it has left sand everywhere, some worse than others. Iíve gotten into the habit of moving everything off the patio / to the garage to avoid sand sprayed all over the patio furniture.

The other thing I like to keep up with that a lot of people neglect is the windows. We have a great window wash guy who does the exterior for only $110. We were getting it done 2x / year and I was using Windex outdoors with a water deionizer in between. Now Iím thinking for that price, just have him out 3-4x / year.

Does your window guy do Broward, or stay in PB? I may have to get his info from you.

Laid some vinyl flooring in the laundry room (direct on concrete) over the weekend for the wife's VDay gift.
She's a licensed corporate interior designer, so all of the flooring was free (sent as "samples").

The after pics show a couple of spots that need to be finished because I was about 4-5 pieces too short. So the wife requested more "samples".

So this only cost me about $40 total for adhesive & a pressure roller (to get it all to stick), not including my time. The adhesive takes about 1.5-2 hrs to cure (become clear) before you can lay the vinyl down.

Almost done finishing our basement....have to do some LED lighting behind bar still and finish up work out area and dartboard area.

Moved my office downstairs, too.

As you can see, I'm a bit of a sports fanatic (and I only have 1/3 of my collection up).
