Why hire a property manager?
We handle the placement of all advertising — signs, newspaper ads, website advertising, rental lists, and referrals. The owner is billed for the actual cost of newspaper advertising at low contract rates, and a flat rate is charged for advertising on our website.
Showing & Applications
We receive and process all calls from the advertising. We require a detailed rental application to be completed, then each application is thoroughly evaluated and screened before approving a prospective tenant.
We collect your rents and provide monthly statements. We review the rents at the end of each lease period to assure that your property is receiving its best income potential according to the prevailing market conditions.
We maintain a good professional relationship with each tenant. Our goal is satisfied long-term tenants who pay the rent on time and take care of the property.
We have experienced maintenance and repair people available to handle all needs as they arise. These professionals have been chosen because they have proven to be honest and competent, and their services are reasonably priced.
We require ample security deposits corresponding to the monthly rent to secure the tenant’s pledge of full compliance with the terms of the lease. Security deposits are held in an escrow account according to California state statutes.
Our management fee is a small percentage of the gross monthly rent collected, and our leasing fees are reasonable and competitive. When your property is vacant, we are working actively to advertise and secure a suitable tenant, and we are continuing to take care of all the maintenance and repair needs — if any — as they become necessary.
We send you an itemized financial packet each month containing:
1. Income Statement
2. Cash Flow Statement
3. Balance Sheet
4. Rent Roll
5. Detailed Accounts Receivable
6. Expense Distribution
7. Copies of all paid invoices
8. Your distribution check
We maintain regular office hours 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM weekdays. All of our property managers have e-mail accounts for communicating with our owners that are checked frequently, and you will be provided with your manager’s mobile number for after hours urgent matters.
