Here at Coalinga Property Management, we work with people who are interested in turning their homes into rental property, yet they want to have a hands off approach to this.

What We Do
When we take on a rental property, there are several things that we are going to do in order to ensure that your venture into the rental market is one that you remember fondly. For example:
– We make sure that your home is up to rental standards
– We help you determine what price you should be charging each month
– We advertise this home to the market using a variety of methods to reach the largest audience that may be interested in renting in the area
– We show this home to those who want to see it while also accepting the applications that come in to live here
– Once we have several applications we go through these to determine who is the best tenant
– We use our tenant screening services to make sure that the applicant is going to be one that we can rely on to pay their rent on time while also treating your home the way it deserves
– After the person has moved in, we take on the day to day running of the rental property. This may include gathering the rent each month and being the person that the tenant calls if they have issues.
The idea is that Coalinga Property Management acts as the landlord for you, so you do not have to do this on your own.
