How Much Rent Can My Investment Property Earn?

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!

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.

Why Choose Advantage Property Management to Manage Your Rental?

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.

I would like to make sure Michelle is recognized as she always goes above and beyond to help and communicate with anything I seek help with.

To APMS, &Staff Michelle & Russ Crowley are the Greatest rental services for both tenant and owners. As owners of a condo in San Ramon valley, we find them to be exemplary, professional, reliable and on top of it all.. We have been clients of theirs for 8 yrs. When our home burned down in the Sonoma Wild Fires, Oct 17. APMS was open to any questions we had in needing a rental until our rebuild. Even tho Sonoma was not in their rental community. They are awesome and their staff gets it done. ! Sincerely, Darlene Garey Property Owner and Tenant

I continue to appreciate the cleanliness of the Hayes apartment complex, in my apartment when I moved in as well as the grounds. It amazes me how well this complex continues to be kept up & everything kept in working order. The on-site staff is very helpful as well as the property management team, and all of my needs for repairs have been addressed within 3 days or less. Tenants are respected & all laws relating to tenants are followed well.

Paige was a great trusted partner to help us rent out our property in San Ramon. She was quick to catch an issue with an initial applicant who did not meet APMS's standards for tenants, and they found a great family after that. Paige was also amazing in helping us navigate a tricky situation when we needed to sell our property while the tenants were still there. She handled the conversations with both the tenants and the buyers, and we were able to successfully sell the property in the middle of the pandemic and still allow the renters to stay in the home until the end of their lease. I would highly recommend Paige to anyone who needs a property manager.

I'm writing this review on behalf of my mother who really had a wonderful experience working with this group, especially Said Sanchez. He was so responsive, very professional and understanding. Though my mother ultimately didn't go with the property, Said was continuously friendly and helpful, continuing to send other properties that would meet her criteria.

APMS was a fantastic property management choice for us during these pandemic times! Russ, Makayla and Paige (who is our account manager), were very professional, data oriented, considerate and patient in answering all of our queries and addressing most of our concerns. From our property listing to a successful tenant application, it took only 3 days and the entire experience was a breeze - I would be very remiss if I did not reiterate that this was during COVID-19 and that it would not have been possible, had it not been for Paige's excellent detail oriented handling of our account! We eagerly look forward to working with Paige and APMS in the years to come!

I contacted Russ when my old tenant was 4 months overdue in rent. Russ and Michelle took over the property management and worked with the tenant to put together a payment plan. When we ran out of all choices, they helped through the eviction process. Needless to say, the property was in terrible shape after eviction. Michelle arranged with contractors to bring the property back to rentable condition and rented out during the middle of the COVID lock down. In a short amount of time, we used many of their services and extremely pleased with the way things worked out. Thank you, Michelle and Russ.

I have been a resident under Advantage Property Managment services for a little over 3 years now as a resident and I can say that the quality of services has been top notch! Advantage offers clear communication to their residents and have easy to use portals for rent payments, service request and lease documentation. The few times I have needed maintenance services, my request were responded to quickly (most time’s less than 24hrs) and the issue was handled correctly the first time. My contact Paige - is always very responsive and kind when I speak to her which makes communication very pleasant. I have dealt with other services in the past and not all interactions have been great, however Advantage has been great and I would highly recommend their services.

My husband and I contacted Advantage after a friend of ours highly recommended their services to us. They have been very professional to work with, and responsive to our questions and concerns. We had to move out state for work within a short frame of time, and they did their best to get our home prepared and rented out during a time when the Covid-19 outbreak was at its peak. They continue to answer our questions promptly and give advice to us as first-time landlords. Thank you, Russ and Michelle. We appreciate you and definitely recommend your services to all our friends!

Russ (owner) and Paige (my account manager) are very detail-oriented, responsive and personable. During the initial property assessment, Russ went over the leasing process, analytical data for rent estimation and roles and responsibilities of APMS. The information was very helpful for a first time landlord like myself and Russ did a great job answering all my questions/concerns. My wife and I were able to put our anxiety aside and believed we were in good hands with APMS. And we were right about it! In about a month, my condo was rented out, which was surprisingly fast considering Jan/Feb are typically more challenging to rent out a property. I highly recommend APMS!
