About Santee

Santee is a town in east San Diego with a population of roughly 58,000. It sits between the Pacific Ocean and the mountains of the Cleveland National forest. While it is considered East San Diego, it’s still only 18 miles from the beach! 

Santee is home to San Diego’s main drive-in movie theater, a perfect spot for family move night or date night. Mission Trails regional park is close by. This park provides many trails with beautiful views. Santee is equal parts residential and commercial and has plenty of restaurant options, from Mexican to Thai to American. Be sure to check out one of the awesome breweries in the area, too!

There are many freeway intersections that go through Santee, making it easy to get anywhere within the county. The MTS trolley system also services here. 

How much does Santee property management cost?

Every Santee property manager has their own fee structure. However, we offer house, condo, and/or 2-4 units property management for an 8% monthly management fee. Alternatively, we provide multi-family (5-15 units) property management for a 6% monthly management fee. In addition to monthly management fees, we charge a $595 leasing fee, a $150 annual inspection fee, and a $195 lease renewal fee.

How we market your Santee property

When our property management company markets your Santee property, we use the most popular online platforms. In other words, we create listings on websites such as Zillow, Trulia, Hot pads, and more to allow potential renters to easily find your property. We showcase extensive information about your property, including images, amenities, price, and more.

How we help you find the perfect rent price

Our property management company assists you in determining the best rental price for your property by conducting a thorough market analysis. This includes investigating comparable properties in the area, examining current rental market conditions, and taking into account factors such as your property’s location, size, and condition. Based on this analysis, we will recommend a competitive rental price that will assist you in attracting the right tenants for your property.

Furthermore, our property management company will monitor the rental market and adjust the price as needed to ensure that your property remains competitive and generates the desired rental income.

Pros of Investing in Santee

Santee is an East County gem with more affordable price points than San Diego proper. It is only a 25-30 minute drive from all of the major attractions in the City plus the perks of more open space, proximity to outdoor activities, and new major commercial and retail developments. Renters tend to stay multiple years in Santee homes as well. Santee has seen an insane amount of value increase the last few years and this trend will likely only continue.

Cons of Investing in Santee

Of course, all the more attractive pricing has led to serious buyer competition and you can expect to bid very quickly and at or above asking price to secure an investment property in Santee. 

What to Avoid in Santee Neighborhoods

When choosing where to buy your investment property, you should be on the lookout for a few things. These things can be a red flag for the kind of area you want to avoid. 

  • Trash in the front or backyard 
  • Vandalism nearby (graffiti, damaged property, etc.) 
  • Multiple vacant homes close by 
  • Poor street light; street feels unsafe
  • Backs up or is close to a major highway or freeway 
  • Foundation issues
