We Manage Apartments With Ease

We’re experts in managing the particular ins and outs of apartment complexes. In addition to our services associated with managing single-family homes, we also offer services specific to apartment management:

R

RESIDENT MANAGERS

California law requires that apartments with 16+ employ a resident manager. When looking for someone to manage your apartment complex, you want someone familiar with managing resident managers and compliance with CA employment law. We will hire, train, and oversee the resident manager for you.

FINANCIAL REPORTING

We understand that you need quality information at your fingertips, so we give it to you. You’ll have the ability to run rent rolls, income statements, and many other reports in real-time anytime you want. Our powerful systems can provide you the information you want.

How Much Does Property Management Cost for Apartments?

Property management fees will depend on the number of units, along with other factors we will be happy to discuss with you over the phone. Any building with 16+ units will need a custom quote. For other types of multi-unit properties, our pricing ranges from 6-8% of gross rents collected.

When you choose to hire APMS, you can sit back, relax, and stop worrying about what’s happening day-to-day at your property. APMS eliminates the burden of managing your rental property.

Self-Managing a Rental Property is Stressful

Have you considered all aspects of managing your own investment property? We think of everything so you don’t have to.

We Do More Than Just Collect Rent.

We fully manage the property as if it were our own, allowing you to be completely hands-off.

Here are some of the services included in our full service management program:

Being an effective Landlord takes a lot of time and requires that you wear a lot of different hats—appraiser, marketer, leasing agent, background investigator, paralegal, debt collector, general contractor, and oftentimes a psychologist. Plus, there’s always the cloud of liability floating over your head. If you’re managing multiple units or apartments on your own, you may be subjecting yourself to too much risk.

Free yourself from the fears and worries of being a Landlord and choose to be a real estate investor who has time to enjoy life to its fullest. APMS offers you, the real estate investor, freedom because We Think of Everything So You Don’t Have To. Enjoy your life without being troubled at the most inopportune times by whiny tenants or leaking toilets.
