About Vista

Vista is a nice suburb just north of San Marcos and east of Carlsbad. It’s home to roughly 102,000 people and is known for the level of services it provides to its citizens. It’s a quiet town and only a 20 minute drive to the coast and the beach town of Carlsbad. There are a number of great parks you and your family can visit (most are dog friendly, too). Every Saturday, Vista hosts a farmers market from 8am-1pm. Stop by to pick up some fresh produce, baked goods, and unique items.

For more family fun, check out Wave Waterpark. Rent a cabana, host a birthday party, and check out all of their water attractions. Visit Alta Vista Gardens for an educational excursion. The garden is filled with art from local artists and plants from around the world. There’s even a butterfly room! Check out the Moonlight Amphitheater for live music, cabaret, and live performances year round. 

If you’re looking for schools in the area, check out Breeze Hill Elementary and Casita Center for Math and Science. For middle and high schools, Rancho Buena Vista High and Vista Magnet Middle School are great options. For more information on schools in Vista, click here.

How much does Vista property management cost?

Every Vista 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 Vista property

When our property management company markets your Vista 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.
