Property management for rentals in San Diego comes in many forms. Some companies tend to take a hands-off approach to management and only involve themselves when it’s really necessary, preferring to let the dwelling run itself to the greatest extent possible. Other companies are very closely involved with day-to-day operations, and have a strong presence on the property, having significant visibility to all tenants. Sunset Property Management leans more toward the latter, because we have learned over the years that our services are in constant need by dwelling occupants.
We realize that tenants are a big part of the success of any rental property, whether it be a condo, single-family dwelling, apartment, or multi-family structure. That’s why we make ourselves approachable and highly visible to all tenants, so that all of their questions and requests can be handled quickly and efficiently. Tenants can provide valuable feedback on living conditions which we need to know about, and that’s another reason why we remain a hands-on kind of property management group.
Experience level for Sunset Property Management
We’ve been in the business of managing various types of rental properties in the San Diego area for more than 15 years now, and we’ve learned a number of key lessons about the whole process during that time frame. Perhaps the most important lesson we’ve learned is that the best run properties are those which are frequently visited by management. The reason this is true stems from the fact that having a consistent presence on properties maintains good communications between ourselves and tenants, and this kind of rapport is what enables us to be in sync with everything happening on the property.
Another lesson we’ve learned throughout our years of experience is that high-quality tenants desire to live in high-quality buildings. For us, that means we have to do everything possible to secure only the most desirable tenants for properties under our management. Accordingly, we perform criminal background checks, employment checks, and we verify previous rental history of all prospective tenants. On the flip side of that coin, we do everything possible to provide a high-quality dwelling for those tenants to live in. We proactively seek out any issues with living conditions, and when called upon to maintain or repair dwellings, our crew of workers ensures that all repairs are performed to a high level of craftsmanship.
Conservation of Resources
Another major lesson we’ve learned from our years of experience in property management for rentals in San Diego is that the difference between earning an average return for ownership and an excellent return can be a very fine line. In many cases, what it boils down to is a consistent conservation of resources. While we quickly respond to every tenant request, we do so in the most efficient manner possible, and we ensure that the job is done right the first time, so we’re not constantly bogged down with re-work and re-visits.
Because we limit our services to dwellings within a 10-mile radius of San Diego city proper, we don’t have to spread our company resources over some vast network of property management requirements. By conserving our resources, we can focus on supplying outstanding service to a smaller number of properties, and providing much greater value to those properties. Experience has been a good teacher for Sunset Property Management, and we have learned all the important lessons very well.
