A lot of your rental property maintenance will depend on your property’s age and condition. Even with a new property that’s in excellent condition, you will occasionally need to make repairs. As professional Santa Cruz property managers, we have experience responding to maintenance needs every day. Today, we want to share some of the most common repairs that are needed at our clients’ rental properties.
Deciding to hire a professional property management company to care for your investment property is a smart first step to a successful rental experience. The next step is choosing the right company. There are some important questions you should always ask a potential property manager before signing a management contract.
Habitability needs to be a big concern for landlords in Santa Cruz because there are legal requirements that must be complied with. Landlords know they are legally required to provide a safe and habitable property, but it can sometimes be difficult to understand what that means. When certain maintenance issues are brought to your attention, you need to take immediate action. You cannot leave your property unmaintained when it poses a threat to your tenants.
Whether you own one property or an entire portfolio, you know how profitable real estate investments can be. While they are good at helping you build wealth, one small mistake can put you and your investments in jeopardy. Today, we’re talking about the risk and liability that rental property owners are exposed to, and how to protect yourself against claims, disputes, and lawsuits.
If you’re investing in a property for the first time, there are a few things you need to know. The California market is unique, and we’re here to help you get started.
It can be frustrating when you’ve had your property on the market for a few weeks, but tenants aren’t calling or filling out applications. If your property isn’t renting as quickly as you expected, there may be a few things that point to the problem. We’re focusing on three of those today.
Just wanted to check in, as we just got the deposit, which looks all fine and clear. So, we want to say goodbye and thank you guys for the friendly and professional service! It was a pleasure working with all of you and we want to wish you a great New Year ahead!
