A La Carte for your Long-Term or Vacation/Corporate Rental
If you are just getting started with the rental of your property located in Monterey, Pebble Beach, Carmel, Pacific Grove or other areas of the Monterey Peninsula and Salinas Valley, we recommend our survey service, during which we will meet with you (or go to your property unaccompanied, if you are unavailable) and evaluate its rental potential. We will estimate the likely rental value of your property and advise you as to any improvements that are necessary or recommended in order to obtain the highest rent the market will bear. This information and advice will be customized to your property and based on our years of experience and expertise and is available for only $199.00.
Not all property owners need complete management services - we realize that. If you have the time and the interest to do some of the management of your property yourself, you may find that selecting services from our A La Carte menus is the way to go. You may elect only one or two services, or you may choose to take advantage of a number of these services that are designed to make long-distance management of your home simple and efficient!
