The Economics of Property Management in Sacramento

Skip economics class. This is the only econ principle you need to know for rental property management: Sacramento landlord specialization.

What is Specialization?

Specialization means that everyone is better off – people, families, communities, and countries – if we focus on what we are good at doing or making. Think California oranges. Alaska would not grow them very well and would be better off sending us wild-caught salmon. It’s all about a limited scope to produce a maximum benefit. Specialization allows us to deliver more, faster because we get better and better at it. Practice makes perfect. It also makes a lot of economic sense – especially when it comes to property management in Sacramento.

How Does It Apply to Property Management?

Sacramento landlords who specialize save time and earn more money in the long-run. They focus on whatever it is they are good at, which is likely their full-time job. Then, they hire a professional to take care of their property management in Sacramento. Hiring the right professional is key, however.

To receive the maximum economic benefit, a landlord should outsource all property management activities to an experienced, full-service team such as Real Property Management Select. Here is a sample list of our full-time job and what we do best:

  • Meet licensing and educational requirements
  • Stay current with laws, regulations, and codes
  • Manage cash flow and trust accounts  
  • Prepare properties for showings
  • Market strategically to reduce vacancies
  • Perform scheduled property inspections and ensure contract compliance
  • Coordinate routine cost-effective maintenance
  • Find the best rates on parts and labor and negotiate discounts
  • Take phone calls from tenants at all hours of the day and night
  • Collect rent and initiate fines and penalties when it doesn’t arrive
  • Evict when necessary, following legal requirements and processes

What Should You Be Asking Now?

Class dismissed…almost. Now that you understand the economic principle of specialization and how it benefits property management in Sacramento, the two questions you should be asking yourself are:

  1. Is property management my specialty?
  2. If not, do I want it to be my specialty?

It may come down to a matter of time as well. We believe you could specialize in it and succeed if you could devote as much time to it as our veritable army of specialists. You are cut from the cloth of success, and your rental properties prove that. However, if you answered “no” to the above questions, it is in your best interest to stick to owning, not managing, your properties. Your profits will reward you.
