For unfurnished letting properties when they are empty, walls can often show marks or picture hooks and carpets can show furniture indents which make a property look less attractive, so a review of how it appears and updating anything you can to ensure the property looks as clean and smart as possible is useful. Keep an eye on the grass and weeds growing and keep them in check.
If the property is empty, it can get a musty smell if locked up and not aired for a period of time, it can help to keep a low level of heat on in Winter and visit regularly to check and air if necessary.
For letting properties that are currently tenanted but due to be vacated shortly, you will be unable to do more than encourage the tenants to help you as much as they can by keeping both the property and garden clean and tidy.
If you follow all of these ideas then you are sure to achieve the maximum use of space in your home, and in turn attain the highest possible price for it and sell or let it quicker.
