A Birch Management Certified Rent Ready home is one that has been certified by our inspectors to meet all of our minimum standards and is typically eligible for a quick move in. Generally, a Certified Rent Ready home meets all of the standards below.

  • Exterior Condition
    • Landscaping generally tidy and grass mown
    • All trash removed
    • Screens on windows when required by Housing Code
    • Gutters cleaned out
    • Exterior of home clean and presenting “fresh” image
  • Interior Condition
    • Touch clean, including areas between windows and storm windows
    • Walls in “fresh looking” state with only small nail holes not in excess of 1/8” and minor scratches associated with normal wear and tear
    • All doors functional
    • All windows functional
    • All railings secure and tight
    • All exterior doors absent of any light penetrating weather stripping
    • All electrical fixtures functional with working light bulbs
    • All appliances in working order
    • All plumbing fixtures in operable condition and absent of leaks


    We developed our Certified Rent Ready program to enhance our resident experience and assist our clients in minimizing vacancy and maximizing their return on investment. By designating the homes that meet the standards above, we are helping our residents select the home that meets their current needs. Just because a home is not listed as Certified Rent Ready does not mean that it does not meet the statutory minimum standards, there are many reasons a home is not designated as Certified Rent Ready. These include occupied homes and those undergoing renovation.


    Please do not hesitate to ask us for more information on any of our services or available properties.
