If I am a landlord and am evicting a tenant for 2 months of non-payment, can I start advertising for the vacancy?

The court date is set for about 2 weeks from now. The tenants still have a few small things in the property like pictures, flowers and a a few empty boxes. Can I list the rental property now? Ans as a landlord do I have the legal right to start showing the rental house before the court date while they still have items in the property?
