Marketing Your Space


Millions live in the San Diego Metropolitan Area. The large population relation can lull a landlord into complacency. Why bother with marketing a vacancy? These should be filled almost immediately, right? Believe it or not, that does not always happen. The residents of San Diego can be very choosy.
People want to rent within their price range, and they also are concerned about location and the amenities of the rental property. Only putting up a for rent sign up or doing a listing is not going to be enough. There should be some proactive marketing.
Getting the word out is not a simple thing for a landlord who doesn’t understand marketing. Property management companies in San Diego know marketing better than the average person. They can make use of sources an uninformed individual does not have. Alto Vista Properties is one of those companies that can aggressively market for client’s space.
Marketing Time Management
It is an understatement to say time is of the essence when filing a rental vacancy. The longer the unit stays on the market, the harder it is going to be defined a tenant. A worst-case scenario is having the home insurance premium adjusted upwards because of empty space. Alta Vista Properties is very aware of these negative consequences. We moved quickly to get a tenant into the apartment or rental house.
We take advantage of the leads we have developed in the property management industry. Alta Vista Properties has been providing service in the San Diego Metropolitan area for over 30 years. We have established relationships that can lead us to potential residents better than other property management companies. We will, of course, use the traditional media outlets to announce a vacancy. However, in this modern age that is not sufficient. We know that we must post on real estate websites, take advantage of social media, and use other forms of modern technology. It is all to get the space occupied in the rent coming in.
We Always Use Caution
AltaVista Properties does not fill vacancies for the sake of convenience. That can be risky because allowing anyone to become a tenant can allow a poor one to occupy the space. It is part of our due diligence to do reference checks as well as review past histories of any prospective tenant. We always adhere to antidiscrimination laws, but we are also careful in selecting people. That person who enters into a lease agreement with our client is one who has been carefully reviewed by us beforehand.
What many do not realize is that retention is a very necessary part of property management. If a person does not stay an extended period in the unit, then a landlord is always chasing retail and is dealing with a revolving door. Once a person is settled, Alta Vista Properties begins to develop a relationship that is mutually beneficial. If there are problems with the plumbing, we make use of highly ethical contractors to fix the problem. No tenant has to wait for an emergency to be resolved. Any trouble with the lease is handled with lots of diplomacy. We developed a reputation for excellent retention rates based on a professional attention to detail.
If you are a landlord in San Diego, you are a very busy person. Trying to find tenants can take up a lot of time and effort. AltaVista Properties can do the job for you in a highly efficient way. Marketing your property is just one of the many services we will provide for you. Please do inquire at any time about our property management services.
