APG Properties is a 5-star rated property management company operating throughout Southern California. With years of experience in the industry, we are always amazed by the number of rental property owners who either settle for mediocre property management service, or who prefer to take on the hassles and headaches of managing the property themselves.
If this is you — make 2019 the year you stop the madness!
Here are some red-flag signs that it’s time to ditch what you’re doing and hire APG Properties this year.
1. Unanswered calls
When you call your property manager, do you hear silence on the other end? Have you ever been put on eternal hold? Have you ever waited more than 24-48 hours for a return call from your manager? We hear stories like these all the time. Seriously, folks…this should never happen! We return your calls within one business day. Guaranteed. If this is not what you experience with your present management company, you need to switch ASAP.
2. Irregular reporting
Do you receive regular, clear, and concise reports on your rental property from your property management company? If not, it’s pretty difficult to keep track of your real estate investment. At APG Properties, each month your monthly rent will be collected, processed, and deposited directly into your bank account (or mailed if you prefer). Additionally, your statements—which contain details on all account transactions—will be sent to you each month. Moreover, you’ll have 24/7 access to your online owner’s portal, where you can view your monthly statements and transaction details, retrieve invoice copies, and/or run other financial reports. If this is not what you experience with your present management company, you need to switch ASAP.
3. Empty promises
Have you been promised more than what has been delivered? Does your property management company give you a clear picture of current market trends? At APG Properties, we strive to know the market. Nobody outdoes us on research. We can tell you forecasts concerning property values, vacancy rates, tax rates, and other critical financial information that can help you make the best decisions concerning your rental property. You are always on the front edge of the envelope with us. If this is not what you experience with your present management company, you need to switch ASAP.
4. The rent is skewed
How much should you charge for a rental property? It is entirely possible to leave money on the table or price yourself out of the market. At APG Properties, we manage properties all over the Southern California. We’re familiar with what the market will bear for each neighborhood, so we can help you get the most return to maximize your profit. If this is not what you experience with your present management company, you need to switch ASAP.
And these are only four signs that you need a reputable property management company on your side in the new year. There are many other reasons to make the switch! If you’ve had thoughts about making a change or if you have questions about our company, feel free to contact us. We’re ready to talk!
