The Definition of Broom Clean Condition

All properties must be in at least “Broom Clean” condition when listed.  “Broom Clean” is a commonly used real estate term that is used to describe the condition that a property is left in when an Owner or Tenant moves out.    

The Broker describes “Broom Clean” as including:

  • All personal property and garbage has been removed.
  • Debris has been removed from all drawers, cabinets, countertops and wiped clean free of stains.
  • Hard surface floors have been swept clean.
  • Carpets have been vacuumed and are in good condition free of stains, worn spots, cuts, wrinkles, seam separations, etc.
  • All TV mounts must be removed.
  • Lawn and landscaping must be HOA compliant.

Excluded Properties

There are certain types of properties that the Broker will not provide service for.

  • Properties with Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS).
  • Due to recent actions taken by the EPA that became effective in March 2022, the Broker will not manage properties built before 1978 or any property that is known or suspected to contain lead-based paint.
  • Properties that added a finished room(s) after original construction that do not have a dedicated thermostat may not be listed by the Broker.

Asbestos Inspections Required in Certain Situations

EPA Certified Asbestos Inspections must indicate that no asbestos is present in locations where repairs or maintenance would likely occur. Inspections will be required for properties in certain situations including but not limited to:

  • Any house built on or before 1981
  • Any house built on or before 2000 with drop in ceiling tiles
  • Any house with popcorn ceilings
  • Any house built with either 9×9 or 12×12 inch floor tiles that may contain asbestos

The Broker reserves the right to require an EPA Certified Asbestos Inspection when any material is observed that may contain asbestos.
