Serving All of Vineyard
Vineyard is a part of the Sacramento metropolitan area but is quite small in that the population is around 25,000 as of the 2010 census. This is an area that is seeing major growth and this growth will continue as more homes are added into the area. Due to the growth that this area is going to be seeing, more renters are looking at this area as a place to call home. And for those who own property in the area, this can be a great opportunity to make a wise investment that will pay out for years to come. However, being a landlord is a huge issue for many people, and this is what stops them. The good news, with our services, you don’t have to stop thinking about this option and can instead act!
As a property management firm, we are accustomed to handle all areas of a rental property. When you come to us with your home to rent, we advertise this to the market in the area and outwards to find the best tenant possible. As people start to apply to live here, we look at their past rental history as well as perform background checks on individuals to ensure that they are going to be the best possible choice for your home. You want someone in your home that is going to treat it well, and that is what we can give. From there, we handle the daily operations that are involved with a rental property. We ensure repairs are made to the home when they are needed, the home and grounds are maintained, and we also handle the accounting side of things.
