What is covered during the onboarding walkthrough process after you sign up If you decide to move forward with Poplar Standard, we will schedule a property walkthrough to kick off our engagement.

The walkthrough is scheduled at the earliest convenience, taking into consideration the schedule of our fielder assigned to your rental property.

All Poplar Homes packages that include Maintenance will cover more thorough documentation and testing so that our Maintenance team is prepared for future issues that may come up after the residents move in.
