We got ours professionally cleaned inside, washed all walls etc and windows etc. It cost $1000 but set the scene for how we expected the tenants to leave it.

Wow $1000 seems expensive is it a big house? Will be hard to convince dh though he always makes remarks about how it's such a waste of money to pay for people to do stuff which he can do himself such as cleaning car, mowing lawn etc. plus I also just bought a fancy steam cleaner so should put it to use. I will see how I go doing it myself first . Thanks again everyone for all the advice

In my opinion, you do not need to get it professionally cleaned if you just clean it properly yourself. And I have found I tend to do a more thorough job than paid cleaners but I am a bit of a clean freak once I get started.
But I have found if you are busy and time poor with shifting and setting up your new place and/or have young kids it can be a sanity saver to just move out and get the cleaners in and then get the agents to do the condition report.
Realistically you have to realise how you leave it all spotless and clean will not be the same as when you see it again given that 1 or more years will have passed and tenants only need to leave it in clean condition.

I'd clean it yourself and hire a cleaner (just a regular one, not a house specific one) to just do things like windows, oven etc.
It'll be cheaper than the places that specialise in bond cleans etc.

Thanks for the replies. I have been cleaning bit by bit and once we move out will do a thorough clean. Then wait and see what the agent thinks. Thank goodness it's a single story house, gosh I don't know how people clean massive houses!
