Getting your property ready for sale or rent is an important part of maximizing its value. Our specialized "Make Ready" service provides a thorough inspection of your property, with a full report of recommendations of what needs to be looked at, addressed and potentially fixed. Subsequently you can make a very informed decision as to how to proceed.

Alvilaur can provide this report in a timely and professional manner, at an affordable cost. We have experience that gives us a competitive advantage over others in our field.

This service is particularly helpful for landlords, property managers, and realtors helping homeowners prepare to sell. A vibrant visual appearance attracts top dollar tenants and buyers! Beauty is only ‘skin deep’ however, so Alvilaur makes sure that the ‘bones’ are solid and the workmanship is completed the right way and will hold up under use and over time!

Tip: A clean property, e.g. debris around the house and yard is removed, moss or growth is removed from roof and around windows, foliage is cut away from the exterior and isn’t rubbing up against the walls, porches and sidewalks are in good repair and clean. A good first impression goes a long way!

  • How much painting should be done?

    Alvilaur recommends a minimal amount; enough to make the home feel fresh and clean.

  • What colors will best help it sell/rent?

    Alvilaur recommends neutral colors, not necessarily white everywhere, but light neutral colors that the new owners or renters can view as a canvas upon which they will make their own color choices.

  • What are the most important maintenance items to complete?

    Alvilaur recommends a check of all appliances, heating/cooling systems, plumbing, electrical outlets, lights and bulbs, to ensure that everything is in working order. Alvilaur has a comprehensive checklist for both interior and exterior assessment prior to putting any property on the market.

  • How is renovation project initiated?

    We will provide a detailed contract and timeline prior to staring the project.
