And, if you purchase a home here, learn about what regulations will you need to adhere to. 

Investing in an area with consistent growth is ideal for investors

Tracy property management

About the Tracy CA area

Samantha Bettencourt, Mynd’s Property Manager in Tracy, CA, says people are looking outside the city for more affordable housing and are willing to commute for it. Tracy is a quaint, up and coming area that has been seeing a lot of improvements. The area offers access to public transportation in about 20-30 min drives and a good selection of nice places to live.


“Tracy offers a vibrant arts and entertainment scene. The City of Tracy hosts numerous festivals and community events throughout the year, as well as live theater, art shows and music concerts. We are an enthusiastic supporter of arts. From Tracy it is an easy drive to recreation hot-spots like the Bay Delta, Yosemite, Tahoe and the San Francisco Bay.”
- www.ci.tracy.ca.us


The barrier to entry in Tracy is going to be lower than purchasing in the city.

Tracy is a great place for investors to look. There are only so many houses you can fit in the San Francisco Bay area, so people are spreading out to the suburbs. These areas are going to see consistent growth in the future. If you are an investor looking for a property that is going to appreciate over time, Tracy should be added to your list of markets to look at. Most people in the area do commute into the city by car, but there are train options in cities nearby. 


If you are interested in investing in the area or are looking for Tracy property management services, Mynd is here to help. We are in 19 markets across the country, so we can offer you the same level of service regardless of where you invest.  If you are an out-of-town investor looking to add a property in a new market, our property managers know the rental market well and are available to help you find a deal that fits your investment strategy

You should always budget for vacancies, but you should also try to keep vacancies low. This is especially the case if you plan to scale your investment portfolio since you can't afford to lose money. 

Happy residents sitting on a couch at rental property


To minimize turnover, you should regularly keep in touch with tenants, make yourself available to tenants, and make smart investments that add more value than they cost. 

Ask About Lease Renewal Early

Don't wait until a month or two before the lease is set to expire to ask about re-signing. This shouldn't look like repeatedly asking whether or not your tenant will be renewing. Instead, you should be consistently touching base with your tenant to make sure they're happy in their place.

You can follow the two-two-two rule by checking in two days before the move in, two weeks after the move in, and then two months after the move in throughout the duration of the lease. Communication makes tenants feel appreciated and cared for, and happy tenants are more likely to renew.

Use Technology

Using technology at a rental home

Make your business and units as modern as possible. That means letting your tenants pay their rent online, communicating via digital means like text or email, and installing smart devices such as thermostats or keyless entry. These sorts of investments are low in cost but high in value because they increase ease of living significantly. Plus, as these items become more and more common, not having them in your unit will start to make other units look more appealing. 

Follow Resident Feedback

While you're touching base with your tenants, ask them if there are any improvements they'd like to make. This is a great way to highlight your commitment to your tenants and address any issues they may have failed to mention. 

Sure, their toilet might consistently leak, but it's no big deal to them, so they say nothing. But a year's worth of drips onto your floor can lead to mold and floor damage. Better catch it soon so that they decide to renew quickly!


Strategic Upgrades

If you're competing with new apartments, you may come out on top just because of your lower prices. But with enough amenities, a high price point ceases to be a deterrent. Pools, laundry, storage, rentable meeting/party spaces, etc. all sound pretty appealing when you start adding them up! 

To compete, you can improve what you already have. An unused basement can become a storage space. A backyard can get an outdoor patio, and a hallway closet can become the home of a washer/dryer, etc. Those things add up too, but they don't eat up your bank account! And if you don't have any ideas, ask your residents as you should already be doing. 


Smart Incentives

A month of free rent if your new tenant signs their lease today can be effective advertising, but why limit it to new tenants? Instead, offer it to existing tenants to encourage them to resign their lease. 

This would be a brilliant idea if you were planning on charging your new residents less rent than your pre-existing residents. Focus on what has appeal for all tenants instead of letting everyone know the prices. 

Be Ahead of the Competition

If you find that other landlords in the area are starting to ask for renewals 60 to 90 days before the sign-by date, start asking 90 to 120 days before the sign-by date. You want to get your tenants thinking about renewing before they start thinking about leaving!


Make Concessions When It’s Worth It

If a tenant says that their appliances are out of date or that their counters need replacing, you may be making a significant investment in your unit. But it's worth it if the result is keeping a great tenant. Ensure that when you're surveying your residents, it's clear that you're taking suggestions rather than making promises. 

Study the Competition

Study the rent and lease terms in your area. When setting your rent price, in general, you should be considering revenue and occupancy rates. Sometimes it's worth it to keep your rent lower if you're less likely to experience vacancies. Make sure you're not doing anything that sets you apart from the competition in a bad way. If the security deposit tends to be one month in your area, don't make it one or two. 

And tour your competitor's properties as well. If you notice granite countertops across the board, you're going to need to get them--or something comparable--because your property will otherwise not look as nice. 

Care the Extra Mile

Caring for residents with a thank you card

Making your tenants feel cared for is about more than just keeping in touch. Send them a holiday card, let them know you're grateful when they've been there for a few years, and remember their kids and pets (write them down if you have to). 

Referrals

If you have a good tenant, then they may know someone who would be a good tenant themselves. So, incentivize your tenant to refer the person who they think would be a good fit for one of your properties. 

And having someone your tenant already has a good relationship with as a roommate or occupying a nearby property will further incentivize your tenants to stay and lower the likelihood of neighbor disagreements. 

Your incentives can be a month's rent, gift cards, or cash. Whatever you decide, make sure to publicize your plan once it's in place. 

One-Up The Competition’s Lease

If you want stable tenants, you may need to make concessions that others aren't willing to make. You can promise not to raise the rent if tenants sign for multiple years. You can also allow pets. 

Bottom Line

One of the keys to getting your tenants to resign their leases is by letting the competition inspire you. Whether you use a property management company or are managing your unit and residents on your own, you will want to ensure your unit is rented to have stable cashflow.

If you're dealing with amenities, provide your own; if you see particular upgrades, make them too; and if you want to retain a tenant, offer incentives, others are not. 

Remember, happy tenants resign!

Does the Hayward, CA market offer what you are looking for and align with your investment strategy? What laws and regulations do you need to follow, and are you willing to keep up with the constant changes on your own? We answer these questions and more in an interview with our local property management team in Hayward, CA. 


Samantha Bettencourt, Mynd’s Hayward Portfolio Manager, thinks that single family homes are a solid choice when looking for an investment property in the area. 

Hayward is a mid-level city located in the East Bay area. Your typical renter in the area is most likely looking for more space and a less-expensive alternative to living in the city.  You are going to have people looking for a nice area to raise families, so single family homes are going to be a popular choice for renters. She doesn’t rule out multi-family properties.  They could be a potential investment opportunity depending on your strategy and preference. 


Does a single-family home in Hayward fit with your goals and strategy?

Before investing, make sure that a single-family home in Hayward, CA is going to meet your expectations and goals as an investor. Maybe the property isn’t going to offer you much cash flow income, but it does offer consistent appreciation.  If that fits your investing strategy, then this is a great investment opportunity for you. 

Hayward property management services for your rental home

Make informed decisions based on the numbers.

It is important to work the numbers and know exactly what you can expect from your investment. No one wants to be surprised after the purchase. Discovering that there is no cash flow when you were expecting $500 a month would be a harsh reality check.  Avoid that scenario by thoroughly researching the area, running the numbers, and consider the realistic expectations the property offers.  

There is no one size fits all in investing

Mynd Property Management manages many homes in the Hayward, CA area, so we are familiar with the rental market and know where the good deal are located.  Not only can we help you find an investment property that works with your strategy, we also offer property management in Hayward and pricing that allows you to choose the level that fits your needs. 


Top Rental Property Laws and Regulations in Hayward, CA


As a property investor in Hayward, what landlord laws and regulations should you be aware of? 

Doing extensive research on the laws you need to follow is required of all investors. Laws that apply to landlords include local Hayward city laws, State of California Rules and Regulations, and Federal laws such as Fair Housing and Discrimination laws.  Your county and city websites should have up to date information on any local laws, ordinances, or regulations that you need to comply with. State and Federal websites will also have an ever-changing list of laws you must follow.  

Keeping up with all the changes is time-consuming and may require that you read through websites frequently, listen to webinars, and attend seminars to stay current on the latest legislation. 


  • Local laws and regulations which may include city-wide rent control laws and property code that protects your residents.
  • State of California laws and regulations
  • Federal laws and regulations such as Fair Housing and Discrimination laws
  • Laws regarding service animals and emotional support animals



For example, AB1482 - Tenant Protection Act of 2019 was recent legislation that impacts a rental property in Hayward. This law contains a lot of different requirements such as:

  • Statewide law that goes into effect on January 1, 2020 and expires on January 1, 2030.
  • Requires a landlord to have a “just cause” in order to terminate a tenancy.
  • Limits annual rent increases to no more than 5% + local CPI (CPI = inflation rate), or 10% whichever is lower.
  • A tenant may not waive their rights to these protections and any agreement to do so by the tenant is void as contrary to public policy.
  • If a unit is already covered by San Francisco’s local eviction and/or rent increase regulations, the unit remains subject to those local regulations and the statewide law does not remove or replace those tenant protections.  

Source

There is a lot more to AB1482, and you can follow the link to read more about it. 


City and county websites are a great resource for laws, regulations, and ordinances that apply to landlords. They also are an important resource if there is a natural disaster like an earthquake if you live out of town.  Their websites should have up to date information on the situation in the area. This can be reassuring if you are an out-of-town investor. 


Your job as an investor is to be responsible and follow the laws

If you are an out-of-town investor, you probably are not too excited about dedicating your free time to learning about what the governing agencies are changing from week to week.  Even as a local investor, your time is important. 

What do you do when you come across a law that overrides another one? What if there are two laws that conflict with each other?


Hire a Property Manager that knows the laws in Hayward

After contemplating all the work involved in keeping up with the laws you need to follow, it might look like hiring a property manager is money well-spent. Your property manager knows the laws and keeps up to date on changes, so you don’t have to. This could save you many hours a month in time you would have spent researching the updates yourself.

Oakland, CA, June 27, 2019

AUSTIN — Investors purchased a record share of Dallas-area homes last year.And these for-profit homebuyers are expected to continue to gobble up thousands of houses in North Texas and nationwide.Home investors are having the biggest impact in the lower price ranges of the Dallas home market — the same sector first-time buyers are shopping.More than 14% of low-priced houses in the Dallas area sold to investors in 2018, according to new data by CoreLogic. Overall, more than 8% of Dallas homes of all prices were snapped up by investors.“Investor buying activity in the U.S. is at record highs,” CoreLogic’s Ralph McLaughlin said. “It’s not the big institutional guys that are leading the increase in home buying — it’s the smaller guys.“They are buying homes that are in the lower third of prices — they are essentially buying starter homes,” McLaughin said at a meeting of the National Association of Real Estate Editors in Austin.Small investors accounted for more than 60% of these home buys last year.CoreLogic found that by the end of 2018, the investment rate in the U.S. housing market reached 11.3%, the highest rate since 1999, when the researchers started keeping this data.The share of investor home buys in the U.S. and the Dallas area is even higher than during the Great Recession, when thousands of distressed homes hit the market and were sold to owners who converted them to rental properties.That’s still what’s happening with most of the houses sold to these buyers.“Most investors are investing east of the Mississippi,” McLaughlin said. “Places investors are not buying homes at such high rates are in the West.“California markets have a realtively low share of homes being purchased by investors.”U.S. markets with the highest home investment purchase rates last year include Detroit (), Philadelphia () and Memphis (), according to CoreLogic.“Homebuyers today are more likely to cross paths with investors during an open house than at any other time in the past two decades,” McLaughlin said.David Hicks, who heads Dallas-based HomeVestors of America, said his company, which mostly represents small investors, is seeing record business.He said HomeVestors buyers are on track to purchase 16,000 to 17,000 homes across the U.S. in 2019. “We are buying the lower end — small houses,” Hicks said.The houses that HomeVestors’ members purchase through franchises around the country are mostly under 1,400 square feet and were built in 1985 or earlier. “Our average age is 1960,” Hicks said.Most of the properties need repairs and updating. “People don’t call HomeVestors if they have a nice house,” he said. The buyers spend an average of $20,000 a rooftop before reselling the homes or offering them as rentals.The average North Texas property-flipper made a profit of $30,588 in the first quarter of this year, according to the latest estimate from Attom Data Solutions.While the home investment business is booming, Hicks said he worries about some of the deals he sees in markets where home costs have risen.“A lot of investors are getting in buying houses who don’t understand the economics,” he said. “We see the prices they are paying and the numbers don’t work.“It’s not a get-rich scheme — they work hard.”Hicks said if there is a housing slowdown and prices decline, some small investors who bought a few properties and paid too much could be hurt.“Right now there is a lot of money for properties,” he said. “There is more money than there has been in years.”Colin Wiel, cofounder of California-based home management firm Mynd Property Management, said the increase in rental homes is meeting a need in the market.“For many people, owning a home is the albatross around their neck that holds them down in life,” Wiel said. “I think there is fundamental change for the long term in homeownership.“Today a young person is going to have 10 to 15 jobs throughout an entire career, and job mobility is very important,” he said. “The millennial generation is very much aware of this. Homeownership is a burden as much as a benefit.”Wiel said that the U.S. home rental market is a huge, behind-the-scenes business.“It’s twice as big as the hotel industry by revenue — about $460 billion a year,” he said. “About $29 billion is collected by third-party property management companies in fees.”
