10 Questions Every Landlord Needs to Ask: Professional Property Management in San Fernando Valley

Property owners often ask these 10 questions, and today we’re using our 30 years of experience in the property management business to answer them:

How Can I Rent My Property Quickly?

First, you have to make sure your property is rent-ready, which means having it cleaned and making any repairs and improvements that are necessary. Then, market aggressively to get a large pool of qualified applicants. Our process results in shorter vacancy times on average.

How Can I Make Sure My Property Stays Rented?

A well-maintained property and pro-active tenant retention efforts are the best way to ensure you have rent continuously coming in. A longer than average tenancy will also increase the stability of your property.

How Can I Collect Rent Faster and Make it Less Stressful?

You need a strict cycle of rent collection combined with online payments and ACH electronic deposits from your property manager. This ensures less waiting and worrying about whether your rent has been paid on time and you get greater financial peace of mind.

How Can I Legally Protect Myself?

Stay out of legal trouble by working with sound legal counsel and paying attention to compliance issues. It’s important to stay up to date on local, state and federal regulations. Working with a property manager who has legal expertise and impeccable ethics will help landlords reduce their risk.

How Can I Keep Maintenance Costs Down?

Keep maintenance costs down on your rental property with a management company that’s available 24/7 and proactive about inspections. At RPM, our national partnerships allow us to provide more cost-effective maintenance than individual landlords can achieve.

Should I Manage My Own Property to Save Money?

Even if you have the time, energy and expertise necessary to manage your own rental property well, many landlords learn the hard way that it costs more to self-manage. You’ll have to deal with more legal expenses, longer vacancies and the hassles that go with day to day property management.

Won’t Professional Management Hurt my Cash Flow?

Most property owners who work with RPM find that our cost effective management fees pay for themselves through shorter vacancies and fewer leasing mistakes. We actually save clients money, which is good for your cash flow.

If I Hire a Professional Property Manager, How Will I Know what’s Happening with My Property?

Look for transparent communication and 24-hour support. All our activity can be found online in our owner portal.

How Do I Choose the Best Property Manager?

You have to ask the right questions when you’re interviewing potential property managers for your investment. Look for a proven and trusted leader and compare what you find. At RPM, we provide potential clients with a comparison checklist so you can review your options.
