In the end-of-tenancy cleaning, you will have to deal with some well-kept units and some that are really worn out. If you do many of them, then you can even your profit out. Other than that, it often takes more time than realtors are willing to pay you.

End of tenancy and end of lease cleaning is what you are asking. The cleaning is done by cleaning experts from Rkspecialists.

I take in move in/move out cleanings all the time. I'm linked with some realtors that call us when they need a house cleaned for a showing or for new home owners moving in. Never had any issues with the type of cleaning. Its definitely a more difficult job cleaning wise, but the realtors know I charge by hour so they get what they pay for. Plus you always have the bonus of leaving a flyer/card in the home for anyone moving in and wanting to use the service again.

Estimating for move-out house or apartment cleaning can be tricky. Unless you are willing to drive to every unit to give an estimate, you have to provide an estimate based on the size of the unit or house and take their word for the condition of the space. Some people or property managers agree to an hourly rate, but they still want to know what amount they might be expecting. Most of the people would tell you that there is only 1 hour of work, since they've kept it clean . So, a flat cleaning service price sometimes makes it better.

We provide house cleaning regular and move-out services in Jacksonville, FL. Usually people have some idea how much the service will cost them, considering they call a few local cleaning companies.

For the real estate/realtor-referred jobs I have done, I would find out who is needing the cleaning and who is doing the paying first thing (and decide if you're comfortable with the answer). I've had it go either way when I've only dealt directly with the realtor. You need to make your payment terms or arrangements clear (and maybe reconfirm with a friendly email). Everyone is different. I've gotten checks mailed by out of state clients, checks from the real estate company, on the spot payment, etc. I've never had to chase anyone down, but you just never know.

I think that, need to contract with a residential cleaning service provider company and to a set price list according to companies policy for both locality and broad.

I have done post-construction cleaning. It was good money, but like everyone else said, charge by the hour! Unless you see the place first and can give a good estimate.

Move-in/out cleanings

My company provides move-in/out cleanings for realtors and real estate companies on a regular basis. Most often if you are working with a realtor, they will put you in contact with the home owner and then you can negotiate directly with the owner on pricing and cleaning needs. The realtor will often give a the owner specifics on what needs to be done especially when the home is going to be staged for showings and open houses.

Most difficulties arise when there are unrealistic expectations. This mostly occurs with older homes with very old fixtures and poor upkeep. However, as long as you and the owner are on the same page and iron our specifically what will be done and what won't be done; things should run smoothly.

If they already have a cleaning service keep the relationship open by visiting with them monthly or by dropping something by for them.
Maybe that's where I got it wrong. I dropped off my company details at each Real Estate's reception and the rest I got their name cards and sent emails. Got 3 out of 20 relators call me which I feel is just not good enough.

I'm a newbie (researching stage), however last year when I put my home on the market. My realtor set me up with "Molly Maids" and they first gave me one price.. my realtor thought that was way too high.. She told me I should have spoken with the manager there.. She called and got me 20% off the price & we didn't pay until we sold the home (about 8 wks later). I was surprised that a franchise doing this but they graciously did. So I assume others also do this too.. Good to know.

What was the first price that Molly Maids gave you for the cleaning?

Thanks for this. Also, clean-n-jax & ftcleaning - the size of the home for the cleaning relative to price would help.

I have a Real Estate agent that I work with who is in my networking group. I've had a decent amount of experience cleaning move outs and getting them ready for rent or sale.

I can tell you that the work is very detailed, even on the "cleaner" smaller homes. Especially if they have sat empty a while as the spiders, bugs, mice and other vermin take over BIG time.

Most average sized places will take at least all day if not more depending on the job and how good you are with detail. It is nothing like cleaning regular residential. You have to think of everything - like cleaning the inside of the oven, windows, wipe down cabinets inside and out, window tracks, baseboards, closets, shelves, and likely sprucing up the outside with sweeping, if they need it.

Totally different ball game , but worth it if you charge right. I'd say go hourly if at all possible. A lot of times there is much more than first meets the eye with these types of cleaning jobs. The one's that have been sitting empty take the longest...
