Meeting Your Real Estate Investment Goals for South Bay Properties

Leasing Properties in the South Bay of Los Angeles to Qualified Tenants

With our 34-Point Marketing System, our Los Angeles-based property management team will advertise your listing extensively and ensure we attract a large pool of qualified tenants to your home.

Our goal is to place an excellent tenant in the shortest amount of time. You don’t want a long vacancy to eat away at your ROI.

Our tenant screening complies with all federal, state, and local fair housing guidelines.

We provide each prospective tenant with our list of rental criteria, and we’re clear on what’s required in terms of application documentation.

All potential tenants go through a thorough credit and background check including, but not limited to:

  • Credit report and credit check
  • Social security verification
  • Sex offender database check
  • Criminal background check
  • Search of prior eviction records
  • Rental history verification
  • Income verification

Our South Bay property management provides comprehensive tenant screening and leasing in Huntington Beach, Norwalk, Costa Mesa, Aliso Viejo, and the surrounding areas.

We screen tenants so effectively that we have a 0.00% eviction rate for any resident we’ve placed.

Full-Service Property Management that Protects Your Asset and Investment

We provide full-service South Bay property management to investors and landlords who need everything from rent collection to lease enforcement.

We conduct inspections, respond to maintenance and emergency repairs, and manage tenant relationships.

We’re especially good at maintaining and protecting your asset.

You’ll work with a dedicated property manager who can handle all of your rental maintenance needs.

If after-hours, emergency service is needed, we have a team in place who can respond immediately.

Sometimes, an emergency can be handled over the phone, but if needed, we will promptly send our emergency response vendors to your home to make any urgent repairs.

We provide rental property repairs in zip codes 90805, 90745, 90703, 90247, 90503, and the surrounding areas.

Rental Property Payments and Accounting

We know you’re ready to receive your rent every month, and our experienced property managers will make sure you’re paid promptly and correctly. Rental payments are generally processed on the sixth of each month for the tenants that pay on time.

Your rent will be electronically deposited into your bank account and you will receive an itemized Owner’s Report detailing all income and expenses on your property.

The reports are also available through the Owner’s Portal on our website.

Good news – we’ll also pay your bills. It’s included with our Gold and Platinum property management plans. We will pay all related property expenses including mortgages, association dues, landscapers, and other vendors. You will receive an owner’s statement each month detailing all rents received and expenses paid on the property.

Free Rental Analysis

The amount your property will rent for depends on several factors; your neighborhood, the size of your home, and the condition of your home. HCM Property Management will conduct a full rental analysis of your property and provide you with our opinion of the optimal rental rate for your investment property.

When you’re preparing to price your property for the Southern and Central Los Angeles rental market, it’s essential that you have all the tools, data, and resources to help you make a smart decision. Our property management team can share what we know and ensure your home is priced competitively and correctly.

We had already given notice at our current apartment and thought we had secured a new residence, but it fell through. I emailed Elva Friday night, and she got back to me the next day. We met her at a property in Mission Viejo. She asked us to follow her to another house in Ladera Ranch. We filled out the application and uploaded our documents on Saturday evening. By Sunday afternoon she let me know that we had been approved on Sunday afternoon. We had a signed lease on Monday and keys on Tuesday!!! She was so efficient and helpful. I will recomend her to all of my friends, family and total strangers even! Best experience EVER!!
