Homeowners new to renting frequently ask whether to include cleaning in the rental cost. There are a number of factors to take into consideration when making this decision
There really isn’t a right or wrong answer – but it’s worth looking at the issue from different perspectives so that you can make the right decision for your rental.
Joan Talmadge and I sat down to discuss this topic, and here’s what we talked about:
- What are the pros and cons of charging a cleaning fee?
- Is it better to bake the cleaning fee into the cost of the rental?
- Can you give the renter a choice of paying a cleaning fee or cleaning the home themselves?)
