How to Find the Right Property Management Company

Taking care of your rental properties can turn into a second job that you don’t have time to tackle. When you decide to hire a company to handle your properties, you take on the new task of finding the right one for the job. Considering all of the Eureka property management companies there are, how do you choose which to trust with your rental properties?


There are a few qualities you should look for when searching for the right Eureka CA property management company:

  • Skilled/Experienced Staff — Does the company have experience handling your type of property? You don’t want to turn your commercial property over to a company that handles residential rentals, just like you wouldn’t bring your BMW to a mechanic that specializes in Toyotas. While a few principles are the same, there are several important differences. Few Humboldt property management companies have the experienced staff to handle both types, but most specialize in one or the other.
  • Focused on Property Management — Some companies don’t just handle Eureka CA property management, but also dabble in real estate, tax preparation or other services. Make sure the company you choose is dedicated to property management to ensure the person you’re working with can focus on providing you the best service.
  • Local Experience — Knowing the local market is critical to filling vacancies fast and advertising rentals effectively. If a property management company isn’t experienced in the market where your rental is located, how can they successfully manage the property? Real Property Management Humboldt has extensive local experience with Humboldt rentals. Additionally, our network of management specialists is nationwide, which is why we can effectively provide service for your properties no matter where they are.
  • Responsiveness — How long does it take someone to call you back from the property management company? Do they guarantee a quick response time? You want a company that will respond to your needs and questions quickly.
  • How Can You Check In? — You need to know how your rentals are doing, so checking in should be simple. At Real Property Management Humboldt, you can log in to our website to manage your account and view reports. You can know how your rentals are doing whether you’re in town or across the country.
  • No Mystery Fees — All fees for managing services should be clear, and any questions you have about them should be answered quickly and easily.

    I like your point to find a company that specializes in your specific type of real estate. My husband and I have just bought a rental property and we are wondering how to find a great management company to help us handle it. We will definitely make sure that the property management company we hire has a lot of experience with residential rentals.
