We’re talking today about finding a property manager in the Livermore area and what you should do to find the right one for your home. These are four of the most important things to consider when you’re looking for management services.
Late Night Phone Calls
First, you want to make sure you’ll avoid those phone calls that come in from your tenants. Those day to day phone calls should be directed to your property manager, which saves you time and also a lot of headaches. When you have a property manager, that professional should be the first point of contact for your tenants at all times.
Maintenance calls will come in at all hours of the day and night and even over the weekends and on holidays. You need to know that your Livermore property management company will take care of these problems right away. If a tenant calls early in the morning with no hot water because the water heater started leaking in the middle of the night, you need a property manager who will respond.
You want to keep a good relationship with your neighbors. Property managers can help you keep that under control and respectful. Tenants are living in your property and doing the things they normally do. The neighbors may not like all those things, and sometimes they will complain. In the past, we’ve had to intervene and keep the peace between tenants and neighbors. We get involved any time it’s necessary and do our best to keep disputes from becoming a civil issue.
Securing the right tenant is very important in taking care of your property. Finding the right tenant for your home will ensure you get your rent paid on time. You’re looking for a tenant who pays bills and has a history of taking care of rental homes. Screening is the most important process and at Action 1 Properties, we do all our screening in house. We are certified by the state of California to screen tenants by looking at their credit scores, criminal history and any prior evictions.
Those are some of the things you need to know when you’re managing your rental property or looking for a professional to take care of it for you. If you have any questions, please contact us at Action 1 Properties.
