Repairs are always more than expected. I know you want it perfect but a few things might need to wait for tenant 2.

Don't panic. Don't grab an unqualified tenant in a rush to rent. Be sure to run a credit check, talk to their previous landlord, talk to their employer, and ask them why they're moving. Then shut up and listen to what they say.

Go with your gut.

Figure out how to show your rental as positively as possible. Be sure it's clean. Bake bread in the oven. Whatever it takes. We're all been there.

Good luck.
