There are some things to check on before renting a home. The first thing to check is the average utility bills. You can find this information by calling the utility company and requesting a printout of the last year’s monthly charges. This will give you an idea of what the monthly charges would be for you as well. Renting a home with new windows, doors and insulation will provide lower utility bills, therefore, you should always find out if the home is insulated and check the windows for seals.

You should always check the basement for leaks as well as termite tunnels. Many property owners do not know about the conditions in the basement because they pay more attention to the living quarters. You will want make sure there are hook ups for the washer and dryer, a drain and check the pipes to make sure they are in good condition.
