Proudly Serving the City of Newport Beach
With its 3 million-plus residents, Orange County forms a vital part of one of America’s most heavily populated regions. Rapid growth in the area provides a steady stream of newcomers seeking suitable housing. Among other things, this means that the county is a fertile market for owners of residential investment property. In addition, the county boasts a large number of homeowners’ associations (HOAs) dedicated to maintaining housing standards in local communities. Some residential property owners and HOAs feel well-equipped to manage their own affairs. However, other individuals and organizations need qualified professional help to keep their interests in order. When property owners and homeowners’ associations in Newport Beach require crucial management assistance, they can call on the seasoned experts at A-Creative Property Management.
Residential Property Management
Residential property management has several basic goals. First, a management company has a responsibility to perform certain duties on behalf of you, the property owner. These duties typically vary according to your specific needs. For example, some owners just want a manager to identify qualified tenants and show their property to prospective renters. Other owners require a higher level of service, and need a company to oversee all day-to-day managerial duties for their properties. In some cases, owners want a management company that will also provide additional services, such as oversight of the payment of taxes, homeowners’ association fees, and other financial obligations related to their investment property.
Levels of Service
At A-Creative Property Management, we offer a range of services designed to fulfill the needs of all property owners searching for a management company for their real estate investments:
This service is specifically for owners who only need to identify qualified tenants for their rental property. We begin by advertising your property in both print and online resources. When prospective tenants respond, we conduct a thorough screening process that includes detailed credit reports, verification of current employment, and nationwide searches for any history of criminal activity or prior eviction proceedings. After we complete this background check, we’ll schedule and conduct all property showings. You take responsibility for everything else, including lease signing, and all ongoing management duties.
Full-Service Property Management
This option is for property owners who need ongoing management services after tenant advertising and screening are complete. Additional tenant-oriented services covered at this level include lease signing, monthly rent collection, provision of a 24/7 answering service, and presentation of notices for rent increases, lease violations, and other changes in status. Additional owner-oriented services include payment of all utility costs, annual property inspections, and the provision of detailed monthly statements for each property.
Premium Service Property Management
This option is for property owners whose needs go beyond tenant advertising and screening, as well as day-to-day property management. Additional services covered at this level include payment of all homeowners’ association fees and property taxes. They also include payment of the property’s monthly mortgage.
Residential Management Fees
The cost of hiring A-Creative Property Management depends on the level of service you require for your properties. For our one-time service, we charge 5.9 % of the tenant’s rent for the first year. The fee for full-service management is 6.9 % of the tenant’s monthly rent. For our premium service, we charge 7.9 % of the tenant’s monthly rent. These rates compare favorably to those charged by most property management companies in the region. Importantly, we’ll never ask you to pay a fee while you property is unoccupied.
Planned communities, apartment complexes, and subdivisions across America rely on homeowners’ associations (HOAs) to protect their property value by maintaining all public areas, and establishing and enforcing a set of rules for all residents. In order to accomplish all of its mandates, an HOA must operate with a great deal of efficiency, and address a broad range of potential issues, including timely processing of residents’ concerns, round-the-clock provision of emergency services, and collection of payment for covenant violations. Understandably, not all HOAs have the time or resources to easily cover all areas of their responsibility. That’s why many homeowners’ associations call on the services of an HOA management company.
At A-Creative Property Management, we provide a number of critically important management services to HOA communities throughout Orange County. Our full-service property maintenance and management package includes comprehensive groundskeeping, building maintenance, and building repair. It also includes vendor screening and management, regular external property inspections, and 24/7 availability for routine and emergency maintenance issues. In addition, we take responsibility for handling all resident complaints promptly and cordially, as well as for following up with actions required by the rules and bylaws of your community. Finally, we help support the smooth function of your HOA board by providing no-cost packets for your monthly meetings.
