Happy (almost!) Spring, Landlords!

This month marks the start of what we like to call “leasing season”…our busiest time of year by far.  Historically speaking, it’s the best time of year to have a vacancy…2021 is not necessarily going to be a “normal” year, but with record breaking sales left and right in Marin, we’re looking forward to seeing this month’s leasing stats after a slow Jan/Feb for rentals.

We hope you appreciate this month’s MVP giveaway in honor of International Women’s Day on March 8th: helping our MVP’s appreciate the important women in their lives.

RENEWAL/INSPECTION  season is also here, and is one of the key areas our PM team provides annual value to you as an investor.  Be prepared to hear from your Property Advisor about 60 days before your lease is up to discuss your plans: renew, revise, move-in or sell.

—->If you are considering selling, the sales market is H-O-T in most categories.  While covid restrictions create some complications, if you would like to schedule a time to discuss your plans with Christopher, email hello@foundationhomes.com and we’ll get you on the calendar.

SB-91 went into effect a little over a month ago – affecting ALL rentals in CA.  If this is news to you – check out our landlord strategy session on the topic HERE.   If recent legislation affects your non-paying tenancy, you will hear from your Property Advisor shortly.

Below please our normal monthly updates, as well as any changes to CV-19 specific company policies and updates.

—->We’re here for you – and taking action during a time of uncertainty and legislative change is literally what you pay us for.
