Proudly Serving the City of Costa Mesa
Orange County is the sixth most populous county in all of America. With this huge population base, the demand for suitable housing for both newcomers and long-term residents remains constant. Among the groups of people that benefit from this ever-present housing demand are the owners of residential investment property.
However, while these property owners may enjoy the income produced by their holdings, they don’t necessarily want to take personal control of all required management tasks. Similarly, homeowners’ associations in Orange County’s growing communities may find themselves stretched to the limit by the daily requirements of their oversight responsibilities. In the City of Costa Mesa, homeowners’ associations and investment property owners can ease the burden of management and oversight by calling on the reliable professionals at A-Creative Property Management.
Residential Property Management
The primary function of a residential property manager is to act as the representative of the property’s actual owner. Depending on your needs, companies can provide a broad range of management services. In some cases, you may require nothing more than someone who can attract qualified tenants and show these potential renters around your property. You can also rely on a management company to take care of all ongoing responsibilities at one or more properties. In addition, you can find companies that provide other important secondary services. The list of potential options here includes everything from paying homeowners’ association fees to paying property taxes and meeting other financial requirements.
Levels of Service
At A-Creative Property Management, we provide you with a complete slate of services that you can adapt to your specific property management needs. Available options include:
One-Time Service: Our one-time service is specifically designed to help you draw potential tenants for your rental property and screen those tenants in order to identify suitable candidates. The first step in this process is running ads in highly visible print and online outlets. After compiling a list of ad respondents, we’ll conduct a series of screening procedures that includes background checks for previous evictions or involvement in crime, employment verification and up-to-date credit reports. Next, we’ll schedule and staff all required property showings. You make all final determinations on lease signing and assume responsibility for ongoing tenant management.
Full-Service Property Management: After filling your available rental units with tenants, you may want a management company to go one step further and take over day-to-day property operations. We accommodate this approach with our full-service package. This package includes tenant-side responsibilities such as lease signing, collection of monthly rent and enforcement of the rules for lease infractions. It also includes a range of important services that lighten your load as a property owner, including monthly utility payments, annual property inspections and regular reporting on the financial and physical state of your property.
Premium Service Property Management: This level of service is for owners who want to further decrease their day-to-day involvement in the running of their residential properties. By opting for premium service, you’ll receive all the benefits of our full-service package. You’ll also receive additional benefits such as mortgage and property tax payments, as well as payment of any homeowners’ association fees.
Residential Management Fees
At A-Creative Property Management, we feature one of the industry’s most cost-effective pricing schedules for residential services. Our lowest rate, 5.9 % of each tenant’s annual rent, is reserved for those who request our one-time service. Rates rise to 6.9 % of tenant rental costs for recipients of our full-service package. Use of our premium services is accompanied by another slight increase to 7.9 % of your tenants’ rental costs. We add to the affordability of our plans by ensuring that you never incur a fee for currently unoccupied property.
Homeowners’ associations (HOAs) are formed to preserve — and hopefully enhance — the property value of private subdivisions, apartment complexes and planned communities. Steps used to achieve this important objective include enforcement of property restrictions, issuance of penalties for residents who break the terms of those restrictions, and regular maintenance of esplanades, playgrounds and other public spaces. In order to meet their many responsibilities, HOAs must stay well-organized and have enough flexibility to deal with both expected and unanticipated problems. While some associations meet their responsibilities through direct management, others turn instead to management professionals capable of handling all required duties.
A-Creative Property Management offers a full slate of HOA services for Orange County’s many thriving communities. The list of services we offer includes vital upkeep tasks such as community building repair and maintenance, groundskeeping for all public spaces and reliable, 24-hour responsiveness to various types of emergencies and routine situations. We also offer additional services that include property inspections, appropriate responses to property restriction violations and the screening of vendor credentials. In addition, we help you keep your HOA board functioning by providing important, cost-free support for all board meetings.
