I think it's standard to have refrigerators, washer and dryers, dishwashers, stoves and ovens. There might be a few other appliances thrown in. It might be possible there are rentals that don't have some of these appliances. If there aren't, then you can always rent appliances.

This is not a state specific issue. The more items you provide the quicker are likely to get the unit rented.

The basics (stove, refrigerator) are expected and everything else (washer/dryer, etc.) just helps get tenants in quickly and possibly allow you to be firmer on your rental rate.

Since we also do property management, it is best to leave all appliances, includings the washer and dryer - you can get the highest rental income with all the required appliances, as most tenants have little furniture and that all!
Be wary of pets, they can cause thousands of dollars of damage.

Hope this helps...

Hello Lynn,

Renters love as much as you can give them. In my rentals I like to have stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, wash machine and dryer. Several renters are coming from short sales or are going through a divorce so the more the amenties the better. Renters will appreciate having a wash machine and dryer so they don't have to run to find a place to wash there clothes. Good luck and remember to check everyone's credit and get a security deposit.

There must be a stove/range and a refrigerator. Any other appliances you include will only increase the appeal of your home to renters. Hope this helps!
