Choosing a San Diego property management company doesn’t have to be hard – especially if you know you want to work with the best. At American Heritage, we are here to talk about several key points that set us apart and ahead of our competition.

Our Experience

Collecting Rent

No landlord wants to spend time chasing down late rent payments. At American Heritage, we have on time rental payments 97 percent of the time. This is due to our careful selection and screening of tenants as well as our aggressive collection procedures.

Low Eviction Rates

For the last 20 years, our eviction rate has been less than one-half of a percent. We weed out bad applicants and ensure only responsible and reliable tenants will move into your property.

Low Vacancy Rates

Vacancy costs you money and that’s why we work so hard to avoid it. At American Heritage, our vacancy rate is less than one percent. That’s one of the lowest rates in San Diego.

Reputation

Property Management Focus

Another thing that sets us apart is that we focus 100 percent on residential property management. We don’t manage apartment buildings or commercial property. We don’t sell real estate. What we do best is to manage single family homes and condominiums, so that’s what we do full time. Our attention will never be elsewhere.
