Rental property value in Orange County is on a definite increase. The reasons?

 

  1. Good prices for buyers;
  2. Fewer home buyers and more renters in the market;
  3. Rent has gone up and is expected to increase.

So now comes the need for property and rental management. Apartment and rental property management is a very stressful task and thus the increasingly popular move many property owners are making is to turn to a property management company in Orange County, CA.

These rental property management companies save a lot of the buyers’ headache and free them from all the endless maintenance work and stress that comes with it. And it saves both landlords and tenants money as well.

There is a false idea that a property management company in Orange County only collects rent from the tenants. They do much more. A good rental management company assists the owner with the day-to-day operation of their investment property, from screening tenants, taking care of daily building maintenance, paying bills, and evicting tenants if required to maintaining the integrity of the property.

In addition, a property manager maintains the facility itself, works to maintain and increase occupancy rates through marketing, manages the tenants and their maintenance and other requests during occupancy, recommends options to improve the budget, and maintains all records.

Lets expand a bit on these.

Screening tenants includes finding reliable tenants who pay on time, rent longer and generally cause less problems.

Building Maintenance includes keeping tenants happy and preserving the value of your investment, which is very important. By hiring a residential or apartment management company in Orange County, CA, you gain access to both their in-house maintenance staff as well as their network of licensed, bonded and insured contractors who have already been hired for good pricing and high quality work.

Increasing the value of the investment means putting systems in place that catch and deal with maintenance and repair issues early on, before they grow into larger more costly problems. The management firm can also offer you suggestions and feedback on upgrades and modifications, both how they will affect the rent you can charge, as well as their impact on maintenance and insurance.

Being a property owner can be a headache and extremely stressful, so looking into working with a rental property management company is a good idea to help save you time, effort, stress, and yes, money.
