Livermore Property Management Experience Serving Investors and Owners
Owning rental property in Livermore means wearing a lot of hats. At some point in your experience, you’ll need to wear an appraiser’s hat, a marketer’s hat, a leasing agent’s hat, and a debt collector’s hat. You’ll sometimes feel like a general contractor, a paralegal, and even a psychologist from time to time. When you’re not busy trying to stay one step ahead of your tenants, you’re probably worrying about the latest laws, and whether you and your Livermore property are compliant.

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 Livermore 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 Livermore, which covers the zip codes 94550 and 94551.
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.
