80% of California rental property owners are “mom & pop” and on average own three properties consisting of single-family homes, duplexes and triplexes. Owning rental property in California does have its business & financial rewards, however the time & knowledge necessary in getting a property ready to rent, showing the property, finding, and screening tenants, dealing with maintenance issues, and handling the legal and financial matters with their own properties can be quite challenging at times. Being a landlord can turn into a full-time job. It’s also one of the most regulated and legislated industries in the nation.
TIME MANAGEMENT: It can be a smart choice if you are short on time. Management Companies handle all the day-to-day & evening and weekend operations of your rental property, allowing you to focus on other priorities.
MAINTENANCE & REPAIRS: You’re responsible for maintaining & making repairs when necessary. Your manager can take care of all the maintenance and repairs for you and has established relationships with licensed contractors that are responsive & competitive.
LEGAL COMPLIANCE: Fair housing laws, landlord-tenant laws, tenant charges for utility services; just a few of the many legal requirements that landlords must deal with. Your manager who is well-versed in these regulations can help you maintain compliance so you can avoid legal issues and potentially costly fines & litigation.
FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT: Managing the finances of a rental property can be complex, especially if you have more than one property. Your manager is skilled at handling financial matters, including collecting rent, paying bills, and providing detailed financial reports. By handing the torch over to them, you can stay on top of your finances and ensure that your rental properties are performing as they should. Management Companies are also subject to real estate audits from the California Department of Real Estate.
TENANT SCREENING: Your manager will take care of everything. From sourcing potential tenants (giving them the criteria & qualifications), showing the property, processing applications, doing all the paperwork, and ensuring legal compliance with credit reports.
AND A FEW MORE REASONS…..
OWNER/TENANT PORTALS: Your owner portal contains your financial records, rental agreements & documents, along with status reports on work orders. Tenant portals contain their ledger, rental agreements, work orders and the ability to pay rent & utility charges online.
Having an experienced agent with a LOCAL PRESENCE in the community is essential. In this day & age, having an office location with business hours when calls are answered live, applications submitted, rents collected, contracts being signed and the "back office" support systems in place ADDS VALUE and credibility to the rental property management relationship.
ACCESSIBILITY: Rental property owners that contract with our office to manage their properties get their emails/phone calls, messages returned and answered.
