Yes. We charge an initial $500 set up fee. The fee pays for the following:
We do offer bill payment services to clients including payment of property taxes and insurance from the real estate operating account.
We make an effort to conduct monthly walk-throughs of common areas. We suggest a bi-annual walk-through of all units along with furnace, water heater and smoke detector inspections.
In most cities, a sign with management name and phone number is required (multi-family). Although we do not require a management sign be posted, we do encourage potential and existing tenants, police and fire workers and neighbors to stay in touch. A professional sign is the best way to do that.
There is no way to predict how long a unit will remain vacant, even in the best market conditions. We do work diligently using our decades of experience to rent the property quickly. Finding a quality long-term tenant with the ability to pay rent on-time and keep the property in good condition is our key objective.
We collect all move-in fees and/or deposits plus one full month of rent at lease signing. If applicable, we will prorate the second month’s rent if tenants move in after the 1st of the preceding month. The rental commission will be paid with proceeds from 1st month’s rent.
Unfortunately, evictions happen and we are prepared to deal with them carefully, professionally and effectively. We and our team of vetted attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of California's eviction procedure. Because evictions can be long & labor intensive, we do charge a one-time fee of $500 upon service of official notice.
Prior to tenant move-in, and before advertising when possible, our vendors complete the following turnover items: carpet cleaning, blind cleaning, general cleaning, paint touchup and general unit inspection.
We take late rent and assessments seriously. Tenants are allowed a 4-day grace period for payment per California law followed by a 5% late fee. 3-day notices are delivered to tenants promptly on the 5th-day of unpaid rent and eviction proceedings begin on the 9th-day of unpaid rent.
Although we do prepare monthly and year-end statements and reports, a licensed CPA should review and file your tax returns. If you don’t have one, let us know! We are happy to make a referral.
Monthly Invoices & Statements are sent on the 15th of each month. If the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, invoices and statements will be sent on the following business day.
Yes. We charge $500 for lease renewals. Our fee pays for:
Property management companies must follow the rules and regulations of the state in which they operate. Most states require at least a real estate brokers license and some require that property managers (and property management companies) have a specific license for managing community associations.
Depending on the company, residential and commercial property management fees are negotiable. There are often flat fees and percentages of the monthly rental value of the property.
Maintenance expenses may be written off at their full cost and include activities such as patching walls, repairing broken windows or repairing appliances. Capital expenses that must be depreciated are those that contribute to the value of your home or lengthen its useful life, such as a new roof, an addition or a renovated basement. Administrative expenses may also be written off in full and include advertising for your apartment, credit checks or legal fees. Contracting with a property management company falls under this category.
Property owners and real estate investors can safety expect to pay 10% of the monthly rental values in addition to expenses. Many companies also charge a monthly fee which can vary based on a number of factors including location, need, value, etc.
Depending on the size of the property and a landlord/property owner’s available time, expertise or relationships, professional property management is worth the cost – which is typically a flat monthly fee and a percentage of the rental value of the property.
In general, property management is important for landlords and property owners to consider if they do not have the time, expertise or relationships necessary for proper upkeep of a rental or investment property.
