Filling Empty Housing Space

Filling Empty Housing Space
Occupancy is the only way to make money with rental property. You need to have tenants in the apartments or the house on a long-term basis. Vacancies will create an extended drain on your fiscal reserves, as you are forced to spend money to pay for the loan and the ordinary expenses. It is not easy even in San Diego to maintain occupancy.
Use a Third Party to Get Tenants
Even though San Diego is a big metropolitan area, there is an awful lot of choice. Landlords in San Diego, who just wait for prospective tenants, will be twiddling their thumbs for a long time. There has to be a very proactive approach to getting people. It requires fairly aggressive marketing. There has to be a way of using social media to get the attention of people looking for a house or apartment to rent. It is going to take the time you may not have the luxury of spending. A smart real estate investor will use a property management company in San Diego to help.
The primary reason to go with a third-party is the size of the net in its network. Property management companies have exposure on social media platforms, and can post vacancies that will be viewed by thousands of people. This is in addition to the traditional contacts these companies have developed over the years. Property managers can actively source tenants because they have the time to do it. You may only be able to access your friends and family, and they might not be able to fill all of the rental units.
Also, the property managers provide a service that not too many landlords are familiar with. It is tenant retention. It is just as critical to have existing tenants stay in their apartments unless you wish to do large scale recruiting every year. Tenant retention strategies are means by which the resident is encouraged to renew the lease after the old one has expired. There is more to these tactics than giving away a month or two of free rent. The key factor is experience in dealing with residents of the rental property. You’ll discover that Alta Vista Properties is an expert in filling space in your apartment units and houses.
