Tired of dealing with the hassle of rent collection? Your residents have the option of making their rent payments online by ACH or credit card. Likewise, our payments to you each month are electronically transferred directly to your bank account. Trips to the bank: a thing of the past!
Want to pull a copy of the lease your tenants signed? See copies of your invoices or review your financial reports on demand? Our online owner account allows you to do this and much more. Spend less time tracking down paper files with the peace of mind that everything is stored securely online and a mouse-click (or finger tap) away.
We create beautiful and descriptive property advertisements and post these online with the top rental sites including Craigslist, Zillow, Trulia, HotPads and many more. We also post on the popular social networks including Facebook and Twitter. Don′t forget our website, your property is featured here on www.BlueOakChico.com with gorgeous large high-resolution photos. With such broad reach we are able to rent your property quickly.
Our technology responds to all online prospects 24/7 and allows them to schedule showings without ever picking up the phone. Should they decide to call, our leasing line answering service offers extended hours 5am to 8pm on weekdays and 9am to 5pm on weekends. Our systems increase showings for your property by 25% and means higher quality renters and lower vacancy!
Our move-in and move-out inspection process is intelligently designed to protect your property with HD video and pictures. In addition, once every lease term we will perform an interior safety & maintenance inspection so that we can detect problems before they get out of hand. Our goal is to protect your investment.
We accept and respond to maintenance requests online and by phone. We have an in-house maintenance staff for ultra fast response time and have well established relationships with the best vendors in Chico. We answer emergency calls 24/7 so you can rest easy knowing everything is taken care of.
Getting rid of bad tenants shouldn′t be what keeps you up at night. When we place tenants in your property our eviction rate is an incredible one half of 1 percent! Should an eviction be needed, we will take care of the entire process and remove the tenant legally.
Dealing with fair housing laws, local ordinances and tenant/owner laws is probably not your specialty but
it′s what we do on a daily basis. When you work with our team we help you navigate these legal waters from start to finish.
Our eviction protection plan is designed to give you the peace of mind when an eviction becomes necessary. We are so confident in our screening process that we will cover the legal costs associated with an eviction*.
*Blue Oak Property Management placed tenants only, up to $750
68% of all American households have a pet and we′ve found that percentage even higher in the Chico community. We know how important pets are to your potential renters but how costly it can be if the wrong pet is allowed in your property. We want to ensure that you can capture this segment of the market and realize the higher rents and quick turnover that they provide. We utilize a 3rd party pet screening service to thoroughly screen all pets that apply to live at your property. We′re so confident in the pets that we screen that we will ensure any that we place in your property and will cover any damage by the pet above the original security deposit*.
*up to $1,000 per occurrence
Our staff knows how important it is to see the inside of your property and not just drive by the exterior. Once every lease term we will perform an interior safety & maintenance walk through so that we can detect problems before they get out of hand. Our goal is to protect your investment.
We deliver air filters to your property quarterly at the exact time that your tenants need to replace the air filter. Our filter delivery program extends the life of your HVAC and reduces maintenance and repair work. The best part is, there is not cost to our owners!
We don’t believe in long term contracts. We want our clients to be happy and not feel locked in. Our contracts are month-to-month, if you’re not happy for any reason simply give us 30 day notice.
We will guarantee all tenants we place in your property for 12 months. Should a tenant that we place fail to complete an initial term for their lease agreement NO tenant placement fee will be charged to replace that tenant.
We employ an in-house maintenance staff who are well trained to handle many maintenance requests. Our in-house maintenance staff means lower maintenance expense for you and quicker response times for your residents.
Powerful technology drives our management. While some local property managers are stuck using outdated management tools, we use a cutting-edge suite of technology tools to keep tabs on our homes and cut down on response time.
We know how important it is to find great residents. Our screening process goes the extra mile so we can find the perfect residents for your home. We screen for credit, rental history, evictions, criminal background and we verify identity, employment, income, prior landlord, and perform a full pet screening.
Our portfolio style management means you have one point of contact. One person is assigned to your property and can answer any questions you may have. It′s the small things like this that make life easier for our investors.
"I had been managing the rental ourselves and it was a nightmare!! We moved out of the area 5 years ago and reluctantly chose to have a property management deal with our rental.......so thrilled that we did!!! No more rental stress:)... The rent has always been paid to us on time and detailed monthly and end of the year invoices are provided. This is company has far exceeded my expectations and twice I have referred family and friend who now use Blue Oak Property as well."

"Since working with them in 2012, my experience with Blue Oak Property Management has been everything I wanted for both the tenant and as the owner. (They were my 3rd property manager in Chico, I had interviewed 4 other companies.) They are stellar! What you see is what you get. They are thorough, attentive, quick to respond and in my experience fair, honest and pragmatic...after 5 years with other property managers, finding Blue Oak has made my life easier, the tenant′s financial and housing needs more predictable and the properties that they manage for us pride-full for the local community near Enloe Hospital. If it changes, I'll let you know, but I'm in this for the long haul. These folks are keepers "

"We NEVER had any issues with our renters nor with Blue Oak being on top of our property issues and in constant communication with us. Blue Oak is very professional, upscale and yet reasonable. They take great care in their business and their clients. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a property manager to truly care for their property, and find just the right people for your home. "

"Blue Oak completely turned around my apartment rentals. They keep repair costs down while having a careful eye on maintenance needs. They have good tenant relations with minimal vacancy. Their use of internet is excellent and their attention to clear and accurate accounts is much appreciated. I have contracted with several property management firms in Chico in the past and Blue Oak is far and away superior to all others. "
