Why should I choose South Bay Property Management Pros?

There are many reasons why South Bay Property Management Pros is your number one choice for property management in South Bay & Westside areas of Los Angeles, California. We have a combined experience of 50+ years in the real estate market. We have literally helped hundreds of homeowners that thought there was no hope after their home did not sell.

Not only do we have the expertise to get lease rates at the ceiling of the market, we provide Un-Matched advertising for each client ensuring the fastest turnaround time to get your house rented, and for top dollar. We advertise your home for rent on over 40 top real estate websites, use videos, and we Photoshop high resolution pictures of your house to get the most income possible for your property.


How long will it take to rent my property?

It depends on the home condition, how much you want in rent, and what the local market will support. However, through our Un-Matched advertising, we provide quality South Bay and Westside tenants in 35 days on average, but it can be a matter of weeks, or even days. If we have a good product (your house) we can move it faster and for lower cost than many other property management company or brokerage in the city.


How do you determine a rental rate for our property?

Since we specialize in single family homes, town homes, and condominiums we have our finger on the pulse of the market. Between using our own in-house private data, driving the neighborhood, and previous properties that rented in the area, and the specs/condition of your house, we formulate a rental rate that will attract quality tenants in 30 days with a full deposit.


How will my property be shown?

No keys will be given out! Unlike other management companies that give tenants the lockbox code or keys, your property will only be shown to pre-qualified tenants by one of our professional leasing agents who has access and of course in-depth knowledge about your home.


How do I know you’ll find a qualified tenant?

Once the prospective tenant says; “I want to rent this house,” we employ several outside companies to our proprietary software program that will run a credit report, conduct back ground check, review employment history, rental history, and check local and national sexual offender databases, and offer a recommendation. Upon that recommendation, we enlighten you with our findings, to help you make the final decision on your new tenants.


How do I get my rent money?

Tenants know that rents are due on or before the 1st of each and every month. The income is collected and posted to your account. Owners receive a detailed summary report generated and mailed on the 23-25th of the month and owner funds are transferred to their bank account via ACH process.


How do you keep maintenance cost under control?

We have work with specialized, local South Bay and Westside vendors that are qualified to handle any issue that may arise with the home. We do not mark up parts like other companies so you receive the best work at the best price, if any issues occur. We will actively work with our clients home warranty company to help reduce costs.


Will the tenants take good care of my home?

There is always a risk that your tenant will not treat your home as well as you would.  In general, though, damages past normal wear and tear are the exception.


Can I leave the house partially furnished?

In general, unfurnished rentals typically find a tenant faster, however, we are more than happy to oblige your wishes to rent your home on a furnished basis.  We have experience marketing these types of rentals in the South Bay and Westside markets as well.


Do I need to take care of the lawn?

Landlords typically handle all lawn care and maintenance.  We do offer full landscape services to you or tenant as an option.


Should I cancel my utilities after I move out?

No. Make sure to leave the utilities in your name until transferring over to the new tenant when they move in. If you cancel, there is a risk of damage during cold weather (i.e. Plumbing, appliances, sump pumps, damaging plumbing, appliances, and it’s a lot more work getting them turned back on as a “new” service under the tenant’s name.


We are still living in the home. Should we move out, or try to rent while I still live here?

We strongly recommend that the house be vacant and rent ready at the time the advertising goes out. Statistics show a clean, spacious (no furniture), rent ready home allows the buyer to see the home at the spur of the moment and envision the home as their own. Being vacant also allows tenants a quick 2-4 week move-in date.


Do I have to continue to have homeowners insurance or will the tenant be responsible for insurance?

Yes. You should maintain a landlord policy on the property. The tenants can’t carry homeowners insurance since they don’t own the house, but we mandate all tenants to carry renters insurance for their personal belongings. It’s always a good idea to contact your insurance agent and let them know you’re renting the house and make sure you are protected.


I would like to move out of my house within 6 weeks, when should we start the process?

Today. It’s never a good thing to wait until the last minute, especially in today’s current economy. It’s a perfect time to start lining up prospective tenants.


I see other agents rent out homes. How how do you differ from them?

Unfortunately there are many agents and brokerages that have ZERO property management experience and definitely not specializing in the rental of single family homes, town homes, and condominiums.  A word of caution: they might not be insured to manage properties.


I’m ready, what is all this going to cost?
