How to Avoid Long-Term Vacancies in Your San Jose Rental Property

A vacant rental property doesn’t make an owner any money, and that’s why you want to keep your rental home occupied with a good tenant who pays on time and takes care of the home. Vacancies are expensive in the long term as well; your ROI suffers and you never have a chance to earn back the money you’ve lost.

Very large quotation mark

Real Estate Connections has managed my property for two and half years. I am very satisfied with their service. From looking for the tenant, managing the repairs, to the monthly detailed statements, they managed everything so well that I didn’t worry at all. Nicole who was my property manager always responded quickly, negotiated rent increase, and looked after everything for me. In fact, Nicole managed my property so well that I didn’t go to see my property once. I will definitely recommend REC to my friends.

We have been renting with Rec Rentals for 2 years now, in those 2 years Monica and the entire REC team were nothing but superb to us, every time we reached out our request was handled with professionalism and care, we know that we can trust REC to be there when we need. I'd recommend both tenants and landlords to engage Rec as they are the best.
