9 Reasons to Hire a Property Manager

There are certain advantages gained when you hire a property manager vs. managing your own property. Here are 9 reasons why:

  1. Property management is what we do professionally. Managing your San Diego income property is our business, and all relationships associated with your property are professional relationships.  Property managers hold no emotional or personal attachment to the rental property or the tenants, which makes collecting rent and handling necessary repairs more efficient and cost-effective. The greatest benefit property managers offer is peace of mind, because they no longer need to be invested emotionally in managing their own rental properties.
  2. Superior marketing and advertising. Our experience with placing rental advertisements allows us to communicate effectively to prospective tenants.  We know which features of your property to prominently display in advertisements, because we know what tenants are looking for.  We ensure visually appealing layout and design of our ads so that prospective tenants know that they are dealing with professionals.
  3. Comprehensive market analysis of rental rates. Property managers’ experience with market analysis allows us to set a rental rate that keeps your property competitive with the San Diego market. This ensures that your property is priced in a way that allows good cash-flow on your investment property while also reducing vacancy rates.
  4. Robust list of maintenance contractors.  We ensure that all of our contractors are licensed in their field (when required) and insured.
  5. Thorough tenant screening.  We have a tenant screening process in place which results in high quality tenants for our rental property owners.  We use a professional tenant screening company to help us thoroughly check the tenant’s financial history, rental history, and verify employment.  We also run their credit, check for a criminal background, and collect previous landlord references.
  6. Access to proper forms, documents, and updates on rental legal issues.  As a licensed California real estate brokerage, our property managers have access to every possible form, document, or disclosure that is needed for a proper rental property agreement. We use the industry gold standard forms from the California Association of Realtors. These forms have been vetted by multiple real estate attorneys. Our industry-specific associations allow us the opportunity to attend seminars and classes to stay abreast on real estate and San Diego property management related matters.
  7. Access to legal counsel for any questions about real estate law.  We keep a “better safe than sorry” mindset when it comes to legal issues and employ a host of legal professionals for counseling.
  8. We free up your time. When you hire a property management company, there is no need for you to make back-and-forth trips to your rental property for issues that arise, or to spend time on the phone with tenants. This frees up your time, allowing you to pursue other investments, work, or personal interests.
  9. We serve many areas. This is an advantage if you own multiple income properties scattered around the San Diego metro area.  We can manage them all for you at a discounted rate. Areas we serve include (but are not limited to) neighborhoods along the I-8 corridor: Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Clairemont Mesa, Kearny Mesa, Mission Valley, North Park, South Park,  College, Rolando, La Mesa, El Cajon, Lakeside, Santee, Rolando, Spring Valley, and Lemon Grove.
