Property Management Trends to Look Out For in 2014

Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — According to leading real estate and property management firm, ACL Real Estate and Property Management, property management companies should expand their marketing activities beyond their local area to be able to gain from home owners who do not live in the same area as their rental property. The company real estate property management firm also lists other trends that are likely to help property managers.

ACL Real Estate and Property Management states that one of the most common complaints that they hear from home owners is that they find it difficult to find property managers because they do not live in the same area as the residential property they want to put up on rent. This means that property management companies can gain from advertising across state lines. Apart from the regular print advertisements, email marketing campaigns can be useful too. In addition, a good website is crucial today, when a large percentage of people look for everything they need online.

The Case-Shiller Home Price Index, along with other statistics released recently, show that existing home prices have seen unprecedented gains across the United States, especially in San Francisco. While many home owners are looking to gain on their investments, prospective home buyers are in the market to make the most of a buyer’s market. Therefore, if East Bay property management firms and those across San Francisco have clients looking to sell their rental units, 2014 could be a good time, especially at a time when demand is high and inventories have not yet caught up. At this time, it is useful to focus on prospective home sellers and buyers as well as existing ones.

Summer months are often the peak time for property management companies. The months of June to August are when most people plan their relocation because this corresponds with school vacation time. This means that property managers should get started with refurbishing and renovating rental properties that they take care of well before the summer months. The aim is to be fully prepared for increased demand for rental homes as well as homes for sale. This includes timing the marketing campaigns as well.
