Ahhh, the rental house. So many little things that I didn't think of. The list of repairs and maintenance is long. Besides painting and flooring, the rest are minor (I think) and I can do most myself.
replace missing door handle
replace missing glass on light fixture
replace light bulbs
replace batteries in smoke detectors
replace 3 wood slats in gate
replace A/C filter
call A/C maintenance guy for routine maintenance
replace a few mini blinds
prune shrubs and trees
scrub driveway stains
buy rekeyable deadbolts
replace door in master bedroom
repair hole in wall from door knob
buy can of Kilz paint for garage
replace kitchen faucet
There are other little things but that's all I can think of now. Some of these are from the current tenant and will be deducted from the deposit, others were quick fixes gone wrong (like the hole from the doorknob) from the previous tenant. The Kilz paint is to cover the flames that I painted on the garage wall and never painted over.
The painter starts Monday and then I can coordinate with Home Depot since I decided to re-carpet the bedrooms. They say they only need 3 days notice. Then the wood laminate for the living room/hall and vinyl for the kitchen/dining and master bath. At least the second bathroom still looks good.
