What We Do
American Property Management specializes in professional leasing and management of single-family homes and condominiums.
Our commitment to professionalism and education is our number one goal.
We insist that properties taken under management be in good condition. We do an initial inspection of the property and recommend needed repairs and/or decorating changes to enhance its marketability. We obtain estimates and coordinate all work that you approve.
Keeping your property well maintained helps to attract the best tenants, and it reduces your exposure to liability. Your property will be clean and attractive when we show it.
We employ aggressive state-of-the-art techniques to lease your rental quickly, and to the right residents. A large part of our strategy includes the Internet. Your rental appears on numerous websites, including our own website, HeroRentals, CraigsList, HotPads, Trulia, Zillow, SnapRent, USAHomeRentals, RentalHunt, KwikRents, MyNewPlace, PropertyQube, and Places4Rent. To make your property more attractive, we also post photos and slideshows at no extra charge to you.
Careful Tenant Screening
We want reliable and qualified tenants just as much as you do and we pride ourselves on the quality of tenants we are able to attract. Our extensive tenant screening and lease procedures help to ensure this. We do a thorough credit check before the lease is signed. This includes checking history with the credit bureau, verifying employment and checking all appropriate references, including past landlords. We crosscheck landlord references with local property tax records to confirm their legitimacy.
To offer you maximum protection, our leases and addendums are based on years of experience and comply with all state and federal laws. Prior to signing the lease, we will prepare a written move-in checklist to document the condition of the property.
Prompt Rent Collection
Firm collection policies and swift eviction in case of a problem spare you from difficult and costly situations. We feel that the collection of rent is one of our most important functions of managing your property.
We do all the bookkeeping chores for you. Our computer system keeps complete, accurate records of every income and expense that affects your property. If you wish, we can make the mortgage payment on your property at no extra charge to you.
Monthly and Yearly Statements
Our convenient monthly and yearly statements simplify the job of tax preparation for you and your accountant. Copies of all work orders and receipts are included with your monthly statements and additional copies are held in our files.
Maintenance and Repairs
We handle all maintenance requests from tenants utilizing our pool of qualified and reasonably priced service providers. We deal with this daily so we know what repairs should cost and how long they will take to complete. We obtain competitive bids and consult with you prior to any major repairs.
24-Hour Emergency Service
When the water heater bursts or the toilet overflows at midnight, we get the call – you get the sleep. We are available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to respond to emergencies.
Do you have a problem tenant you’d like to get rid of? Of course, nobody wins when an eviction happens, so it is always best to strive for a solution with the tenant. But allowing a habitually late paying tenant to remain forever in arrears only postpones the inevitable day when they skip out owing you rent, and possibly leaving your property a wreck. Eviction for nonpayment of rent in California is fast and certain when the steps are executed properly. If you need a referral to an eviction attorney, please Contact Us.
