My tenant tells me that she will be moving out on Sunday. Today I called the electric company, the water company, the sewer company, the gas company, and I will wait until Monday to call the trash company. I need to put them all back in my name. I am not looking forward to getting those bills.
I have also been looking at property management companies. I think I have narrowed it down to 3 with one being my favorite. That one will cost $200 for the initial fee and 10% of the monthly rent. I'll set up appointments to meet with them next week.
I also need to pick a tile layer, pick out tile, and check out my house to see what it needs. I made a short list: batteries for the smoke detectors, buy AC filters and order a service call, replace any broken mini blinds, trim the shrubs and trees, clean and repaint if needed, get a locksmith to re-key the house. I think of new things every day. February is going to be one busy and expensive month!
