Rental Trends Must Be Watched

Smart landlords in San Diego follow the trends. They know that such information is going to determine whether rent in San Diego is going to rise or not. While the overall picture for San Diego is favorable, with rents going up, landlords still must be careful. If that rent is too high, it will take quite a while to fill vacant apartments. That wait can result possibly in the lowering the rent charged.
Overall trends might not translate into the same thing happening at the local level. A real estate portfolio with properties in several suburbs can be difficult to balance. Trying to determine what trends say can make it all even worse. Property management companies look carefully at trends. Alta Vista Properties is a property management company in San Diego that pays attention to the figures.
Checking Comparisons
We look at trends with an eye to individual properties. We are careful to make sure that apples are compared to other apples. The rent for a three-bedroom apartment is going to be different than that of a two-bedroom place We also consider the location of the apartment. Are rents in the neighborhood rising or are they remaining stable? It is an important question which we work hard to develop an answer. It can determine what amount of rent increase, if any, we recommend to a client. Trend figures give us a base with which we work. We have an idea of the range of rate increases, and we can improve on that. We do it by tweaking the appearance of the apartment. It’s amazing what a coat of paint or a little extra polish can do for an apartment available for rent.

Appearance Helps Determine Rent
We check on the appearance of the apartments with periodic inspections. We make a note of where some improvements need to be made, and we arrange to have a repair work done. When the appearance justifies the rental price we are charging, Alta Vista Properties will start an aggressive marketing campaign. All venues are used, including traditional media, the Internet, word-of-mouth, and leads we have developed over the years. Because we quote the right rental amount, we are ordinarily able to fill a vacant apartment quickly. We bring a great deal of experience and expertise to the table.
