Keeping Rentals Occupied in San Diego

rental home property investment landlord tenant property management lease keeping rentals occupiedThere are lots of opportunities in San Diego real estate. Sales are down a bit and the prices of houses are up, but that is not a problem for landlords in San Diego. It means people are delaying the purchase of a house and will continue to rent. More people renting homes is good for keeping rentals occupied.

The Risk

Landlords in San Diego invest a lot in their properties. These units must have paying renters to remain profitable. Apartments cannot stay vacant for long periods of time. Lack of income from vacancies is one issue and extended periods of an empty dwelling is another.

Those looking for apartments in San Diego are cautious. If they see an apartment unoccupied for months, they may think something is wrong with the residence. Insurance companies will charge higher premiums for empty dwellings, and the cost of maintaining the utilities drains cash reserves. Property management companies in San Diego understand the need to fill the space. Alta Vista Properties is committed to keeping client rentals occupied.

We Use Referrals

Marketing vacancies doesn’t need to be expensive. Alta Vista Properties will ask current and former tenants to refer people to us. Our policy of open and transparent relationships with tenants motivates these people to refer friends and family, helping us to keep rentals occupied.

The building contractors with whom we work have earned a reputation for honesty. They only charge for work performed with no hidden fees in the final bill.

Social Media Is Used to Fill Rentals

Internet platforms are great places to advertise vacancies if these websites are used properly. We post pictures of the available apartments and mention the best qualities. Incidentally, these are not pictures taken on smartphones. We use professional photographers to get the right images and highlight appealing features. Interested parties are always impressed by the pictures we use. We post these images on our website, all the various social media platforms, and the best real estate platforms in the area. When it comes to keeping rentals occupied, the internet and social media are crucial.
