We All Need a Place to Live, a Place to Call Home

 a place to call home

Temecula Valley California

Some of you may know that I have taken on property management as my new business direction this year. In the midst of several short sale catastrophes, a client I sold a home to several years ago called to say they needed to lease their home because of a job opportunity in another state.

Since I had been contemplating how to transition my business to Temecula Valley California property management, and although I was surprised to get that call, the serendipity of it didn’t escape me.

My client asked if I could manage everything for him, and of course, I said our office could. Not every Temecula Valley California real estate brokerage is set up to follow California Department of Real Estate rules when it comes to managing property, and especially the collection of client funds.

I’m so fortunate to have made the move I did to a full-service real estate brokerage that is equipped to manage property, from marketing, finding /screening a tenant, to handling all the details—from repairs to collecting rents.

 We all need a place to live

We all need a place to live, whether we buy our own Temecula Valley home or rent one. There are advantages to both sides, neither one is necessarily better, just different.

What has surprised me the most in these recent developments was the number of inquiries and calls I received, from Trulia, Zillow, realtor.com and my office. I can say the interest level for my rental property was at an all-time high in comparison to the many short sale listings I’ve marketed in the past on these same sites.

What this tells me is that there are more folks out there looking to rent than to buy. If Temecula Valley California homeowners are upside down in their mortgage and need to re-locate, instead of a short sale, or walking away, they may want to consider leasing their home, until they are either able to return, or  acquire enough equity to sell it.


If you have questions about how to lease your home, please feel free to contact me direct at 951.491.4063 for more information. A consultation is always free and at no-obligation.

Hi Pamela - Our daughter has her own property management company, and it's very interesting to note the differences between sales and property management. The market has been smiling on her for several years now - very low vacancy rates, increasing rents and a lot of sellers opting to lease. My your path be as smooth!

What a perfect introduction to property management.  The rental market here is very tight.  So few rentals, too many prospective renters.  Good luck to you.

In my town, there is a "brokerage" that is not only NOT set up to follow DRE rules regarding property management, they are not even listed on the DRE website as a legitimate rental company!

Hi Pamela,

Congrats on venturing out into the property management business!  I have been at it for five years now.  I'm still small and want to grow the business to an initial level of 25 properties.  The property management business compliments the sales business very well.

Best of success to you this year!

Evelyn, thank you. Same here.

Gary, I know that not every broker is willing to allow their agents to manage property because there are not set up to -- there's more involved than real estate sales. Thanks for your comment today, 

Christine, there are!

Erica, that's good to hear. 

Jordon, thank you for the support. Hope you reach your goal this year!

Pamela, I'm glad to see this getting featured. You needed to be seen more on this, because it was so well-written- positive and filled with a different perspective.

Good for you!
