How Much Rent Should I Ask For On My Investment Property?
This is a critical, yet difficult, question to answer. If the asking rent is too high then your property sits on the market, losing money every day. If you ask too little then you are leaving money on the table, negatively affecting your bottom line. Our expert Castro Valley property management services include a complimentary Data Driven Rental Analysis to price your home competitively.
We’re happy to provide you with a complimentary rental analysis. Talk to us about your property, and we’ll tell you what you can expect.
We help owners in all of Castro Valley, which covers the zip codes 94546, 94552, 94577 and 94578.
Working with Advantage Property Management is fantastic! They quickly got my condo ready to rent, and secured a long term lease at my request! Russ and Michelle are so kind and easy to work with. They always respond quickly to emails, and were very clear and thorough about the rental process. Their company and contractors are professional and their website and owner’s portal is very easy to use. I highly recommend using Advantage Property Managment if you are looking for property managers, you won’t regret it!Amy P.
Property Management Services and Pricing
The lowest cost property manager is not the one with the lowest management fees, it’s the manager who maximizes your return on investment. Price should never be the determining factor in choosing a property management company for your home. In order to deliver the best results, we can’t match the fees of low-priced property management companies or Realtors who practice property management as a side business.
Frankly, we know you can find a cheaper property management company. We are not willing to compromise our service level to compete with the low cost providers out there. Our focus is on value — delivering the very best Castro Valley property management services at a fair price. Our Rent Payment Guarantee means you don’t pay us until we deliver.

The Value of Working With Advantage Property Management
Make sure your pricing perspective serves what you and your property really need. To save money, you don’t want to choose the property manager with the lowest fees. You want to choose the Castro Valley property management company that maximizes your earnings and protects your bottom line.
We provide the best value for homeowners in Laurelwood, Palomares Hills and the surrounding areas.
We don’t recommend choosing a property management company based solely on their management fees. To deliver the high quality services we promise, we cannot match the discount management companies or the real estate agents who manage properties as a side business.
But we can give your investment property the attention it deserves and the experience it requires. We know that you can find a cheaper company to manage your Castro Valley home. But, we also know that you won’t find a better one than APMS. We won’t compromise our service to compete with low-quality, low-price providers. We focus on value, and we deliver the best Castro Valley property management you can find at a fair price. And, with our Rent Payment Guarantee, you don’t pay us until we deliver.
