Does anyone know a good property management, or realtor who will rent my house in Boston, but first clear it out, and clean it up? This has got to be simpler.

Where is the property? That info would be helpful.

Most any property management company has the capacity to order any type of work done on a property including hauling off trash etc and a cleaning, gardener, repairs. If this is minimal we don't even charge for the project considering we will be getting an account that will bring in income. However, on large projects that require a lot of an agent's time, the owner should expect to pay for the service apart from simple property management that is done such as advertisng and qualifying a tenant.

It can be a tough job, but you'll save money doing it yourself. Just make a master list and tackle each job as it comes up on your list.

First off, get rid of at least 20% of everything you have in every area. The stuff people hang onto that they don't use anyway is such a ball and chain. The only thing anyone needs to store is tools, seasonal decorations and seasonal clothes. Maybe even a few kid items to pass to future kids. Other than that, you are just cluttering up your life with stuff you don't need or you would actually be using it.

Once you do that, the master list of the rest of your chores will be easier to make.
