When you are choosing a property management company to take care of your investment property, going to Google can be a tiring and overwhelming process. What are their management fees? What kind of reviews do they have? Can they be trusted? How fast can they rent my property? What guarantees do I have that they will do what they say they will do? All of these questions run rampant through your brain during this process.

As a homeowner, not only is it essential to research these potential companies, you mustn't make a hasty decision that you will end up regretting and costing you tons of money in the long run. In this era of social media, Yelp, Google, and other avenues, the “footwork” of conducting research has been streamlined to the click of a button.

Orange County has a dozen or so excellent property management companies to choose from. Today we are going to look at the Top 5 Companies that you may want to consider when doing your research.

  1. Utopia
  2. Orange County Pm
  3. White Glove
  4. APG Properties
  5. Irvine Property Management

White Glove Property Management

Making the Decision

Choosing a property management company is like looking for a babysitter for your children, ok, almost like that. You do your homework, compare apples to apples, do your due diligence, and get references and choose the one that you feel best fits your needs and desires.

Continue your journey of researching property management companies and find out what your property will rent for. Do not base your decision on social media sites as they can be off by 15% or more ( 15% on a $2000 rent is $300 a month), and that is going to destroy your cash flow.

Good management companies that are aggressive will pay their own way by raising rents moderately year over year. It’s been proven that 95% of the people who manage it themselves will never increase the rent for fear of losing their renter.  Lastly, don’t get scared away on a fee of 10% compared to 7% as it only about $30 a month difference, and an excellent, trustworthy management company will be worth the extra dollar a day.
