I own several properties and have always managed the properties myself. I never found it to be too much of a problem as investing in properties was my full time job. Since I didn’t work, I had plenty of time to manage my own properties. It wasn’t until about a year ago that I decided to look into using a property management company. I had finally gotten to the point where I just had too many properties and didn’t have the proper infrastructure to keep up with the maintenance and vacancies. My properties are in the Sacramento area and expand to Roseville, Rocklin, Sacramento, Citrus Heights, Folsom and Lincoln.
To delegate my property management obligations, I used the internet and cross referenced each company with their existing clients to make sure they were capable of managing my properties appropriately. After doing my research, I decided to work with Vienna Property Management. Vienna Property Management already had properties in Roseville, Citrus Heights, Folsom, Lincoln, and Citrus Heights. Since they covered my area, I new they would have the infrastructure in place to adequately handle my properties.
After talking to the owner Scott, I new they were right for me. Vienna Property Management was able to manage my homes and transition the properties without any hiccups. Vienna PM is currently taking about 10 percent of the total gross monthly income, but in return they can provide exceptional services that I am unable to do as there are simply too many properties. Since I own 33 homes and condos in Roseville, Citrus Heights, Folsom, Rocklin, and Sacramento, there is just no way I can effectively handle the needs of each tenant.
Vienna Property Management is definitely worth the price they charge me. I now can collect my rental dues without having to deal with tenants or maintenance. Yes, I don’t make quite as much since Vienna took over, but the free time they’ve given me is worth every penny. I now have time for vacationing with my family without having to worry about emergency house calls. I can also do anything I want during the day, and now I can continue to speculate on real estate investments knowing that I no longer have to worry about management. If the property is for sale at a good price and there is the potential for a nice return on investment, I know I can buy the home and just have Vienna Property Management handle the day to days.
Vienna PM has their main office in Rocklin CA, but they service the entire Sacramento El Dorado and Placer areas. If you own properties near them, I strongly recommend using their services.
