Leasing Your Long Beach Rental Home

Leasing your rental property shouldn’t be stressful or complicated. Owners know that renting out your property is where a good investment experience starts. When you partner with HCM Property Management in Long Beach, you can be sure we’ll find you a qualified renter quickly, to reduce vacancy loss and ensure a profitable rental process.

Efficient Marketing and Leasing Leads to Lower Vacancy

We are proud of our unique 34-point marketing plan, which is proven and effective. It enables us to advertise your property to a large pool of qualified tenants who are ready to sign a lease and move in. We attract renters with a history of positive rental experiences and reliable income. There’s less vacancy loss when you aren’t waiting weeks and months to find that perfect tenant.

Screening Tenant Credit and Financials

Screening Long Beach tenants should be detailed and consistent. It also has to be fair to avoid running afoul of strict California fair housing laws. You can count on us to comply with all federal and state fair housing laws while finding a tenant who has acceptable credit, income, and rental references. 

Effective tenant screening will include careful evaluation of an application, including the credit report, employment and earnings, as well as criminal history and general background. We look for prior evictions and verify identity.  

A qualified tenant will be screened for:

  • Satisfactory credit
  • Income at least three times the monthly rent
  • Verifiable identification and social security number
i

Evaluating Rental History

Even tenants who look perfect on paper come with an element of risk. Just because there’s a high income and perfect credit doesn’t mean your property is safe. So – we closely examine rental history and talk to current and former landlords. We have high expectations for how a tenant will treat your home.

The screening process at HCM includes seeking tenants who pay bills on time, particularly their rent, utilities, and other housing-related expenses. We look for judgments or collections or money owed to former landlords or apartment communities.

Our application asks for permission to complete a full background check, including credit, criminal, and landlord references.

Applicants know this ahead of time. They receive a written list of rental criteria before they apply.

    Avoiding Long Beach Evictions

    There aren’t a lot of Long Beach property managers who can celebrate an eviction rate that’s holding steady at 0.00%. At HCM, we can. We simply do not have to evict the tenants we place. This impressive statistic reflects the effectiveness of our screening process and our ability to identify and recruit only highly qualified residents.

    Evictions in Long Beach are expensive and time consuming. They also come with their own risk that your case will be thrown out or overcomplicated. Mistakes are easy to make, and it only takes one missed detail to set you back to the start of the process. You don’t want to find yourself having to remove a tenant, and when you partner with HCM, we make sure that’s unlikely to occur.

    This doesn’t mean we won’t evict for unpaid rent, property damage, lease violations, or criminal conduct. It simply means we rarely need to take this step.

      Long Beach Property Management and Leasing: Work with HCM

      HCM has a standard full-service property management fee, which includes our leasing programs. You can work with us for a low fixed rate starting at $99 per month for single-family homes, condos, and town-homes.

      There are no set-up fees and no fees while your property is vacant. We only earn our property management fees when we are collecting rent from your tenants.

      If you have a multi-unit property, please contact our office for a no-obligation quote.

      HCM took over my property back in May and it's been a delight ever since! I really appreciate the time they take to try to get you the best prices for a repair without compromising the quality of it. Luisa lowered my maintenance limit and now I get to approve all tenant-placed service requests. It's nice to be aware of everything that happens at your rental to ensure both parties are satisfied.

      This is my third property with HCM and I couldn’t be more satisfied. I started as a silver-plan owner but ended up upgrading my plans to platinum! I appreciate the annual tax report and HW coordination. Also, I’ve been emailing Luisa regarding some bills and she’s been handling those flawlessly. Thanks to all the staff.
