What We Do As Your Bakersfield Property Manager
We do more than just collect rent - 5 steps to successful management.
SEE WHY OUR CLIENTS COME BACK TIME & AGAIN
As you interview property managers ask these four questions:
How many evictions have you had in the last 5 years with tenants that you have placed/qualified?This is an indication of the skill and dedication that the property manager posses in picking a quality tenant.
Even in apartment buildings with low rents - if the property manager has these quantifiable skills - the results will be excellent tenants that do not end in eviction.
What percentage of the security deposit do your tenants get back?Again an indicator of the quality of the tenant. We pick quality tenants that take responsibility for themselves, their families and understand that being a renter comes with responsibilities. We make this clear in the beginning of our relationship and only approve those tenants that demonstrate these qualities. We averaged this over the last two years and find that at Property Star 90% of our tenants get 95% of their security deposit back.
We have never been taken to court by a tenant for withholding their security deposit due to before and after pictures and clear documentation. Prior to a tenant moving in we perform a complimentary pictorial move in inspection. It is typically from 300 to 600 pictures depending on the size of the home and this inspection is uploaded to both the tenant and the owners portal.
We are known for offering rentals that are in excellent condition and clean to a professional standard. We expect the tenants to return in the same fashion. All tenants are responsible for having carpet professionally cleaned at their expense upon their departure.
What is your average vacancy time between tenants?This demonstrates the property manager’s true (not just words) dedication to your bottom line. Vacancy is lost revenue. We pride ourselves in premarketing, making sure the outbound tenant is onboard with showing prospective tenants the well kept rental and then moving fast with our preplanned "get ready" schedule as soon as the property is empty.
Our average vacancy for 2016 between tenants moving out and new tenants moving in was 6 days. Our average vacancy for 2017 between tenants moving out and new tenants moving in was 3 days.
How quickly do you pay your owners their draw?Our tenants are asked to pay their rent on the 1st day of the month. We have a zero day grace and 90% of our tenants have paid by the end of the 2nd day of the month. 96% are paid by the 4th.
We process the large majority of our owner draws electronically or by check no later than the 6th day of the month. We collect it fast, pay our vendors quickly and then get the owner draw out without delay.

Bakersfield Area Information
Bakersfield is one of the fastest growing cities in California with a population of almost half a million people. It is the capitol of Kern County and one of the richest agricultural regions in the world, producing more food than most states. On top of that, it is the most prolific oil-producing county in the country.
Bakersfield sits right at the south end of the great San Joaquin Valley of California with beautiful views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the east. Perhaps the best quality of Bakersfield is how centrally located it is to surrounding areas, such as Los Angeles, Fresno, and the Pacific Ocean, which have a variety of recreational and business resources.
Not only is Bakersfield just 2 hours from larger cities providing more resources but it has some wonderful resources and recreational attributes itself. Buck Owens Crystal Palace is a beautiful historic museum, restaurant, bar, and music hall. It was built in 1996 by Buck Owens himself and is a huge piece of Bakersfield’s community. If you visit Bakersfield, you have to visit The Crystal Palace to see what country music is all about.
