Are you having to move away but want to keep your current home and just don’t have the time to take care of it or deal with renting it out to someone else?

We can think of lots of people who would benefit from this process but here is a few on our list:

  • Active military or veterans who are moving to a different location

How much do Orange County Property Management Services cost?

I’m sure you’re wondering what cost all this work comes at, so here it is:

for a single family home, townhouse or condo we charge only $175 a month to take care of all of these things for you.

Multiple units would depend on the number of units that property had, but it usually ends up being about 5% of the total gross rents from that particular property.
What do you have to lose besides for some extra stress? If this feels like something you need to take advantage of, give us a call today at 949-338-7408! We look forward to hearing from you 🙂

CIPS – Why we think International Real Estate is so important!

Posted on August 18, 2017. Filed under: Balboa's Best Property Deals, Home Seller Tips, Informed Investor Alliance, International Properties, Orange County Real Estate | Tags: , , , , |

First of all, what even is a CIPS?

That is what AskAngie team is here to explain! CIPS stands for Certified International Property Specialist, which means that we are designees that have been trained and certified on how to help you with your international real estate needs. We are well informed on how different cultures interpret people and real estate. CIPS designees are prepared to work with international clients, international funds, as well as American clients who choose to buy internationally. We are relied on because of our expertise in international real estate.

Why do we need Certified International Property Specialists?

Global business and international real estate have expanded a lot so these designees are need more now than ever before! Recently, foreign buyers have spent a lot more money in real estate – to the tune of over 1 BILLION per year. Earning the CIPS title makes agents more creditable and resourceful. CIPS have access to a wide network of professionals that can help you with your property needs around the world. Through research we are able to protect you from losing property or buying in a country where you don’t actually ‘own’ your home. We make sure you are buying legitimate properties wherever you may be looking! People are moving from foreign countries to the US every single day and many Americans look into property overseas as well. Because of the work Certified International Property Specialists do, these home owners are able to have a smooth and reliable transition into their new space (or out of their old)!

Watch this video on why we think CIPS is an important designation!

We recommend if you’re thinking about buying out of the country, call us at 877-230-3211 or text Angie at 949-338-7408 to take advantage of the CIPS education and put it to work for your real estate needs! 🙂

Balboa Peninsula, Newport Beach – Best Deals on Property Duplexes

Posted on October 3, 2014. Filed under: Balboa's Best Property Deals, First Time Buyer help, Informed Investor Alliance, OC Property Profiles, Orange County Real Estate | Tags: , , , , , |

Balboa Peninsula views

Standing at the end of the Balboa Pier, a Newport Beach coastline pic.

Gorgeous Newport Beach, CA – an ideal retirement and vacation spot for so many.  Balboa Peninsula is seeing lots of changes this year – a new marina going in, lots of new restaurants and shops, multiple properties adding 2nd and 3rd stories – the area is truly in a ‘build up’ phase similiar to what we saw with Huntington Beach 10-15 years ago.For many, the “Newport” lifestyle is far out of reach.  Currently there is only ONE lonely condo on Balboa Peninsula under 1 million dollars, and it’s HOA is almost $800/mo – OUCH!  Is there anything affordable?  Are there any opportunities?  There sure are.  Lots of times with the higher end areas, buyers will opt for a multi-unit property as a stepping stone to get up to their McMansion.  They live in one unit, and rent out the other(s) so that the mortgage becomes affordable.  Many property owners keep the multi-unit forever, because rental rates on the peninsula can be insane.  Newport Beach vacation rents range from $150-1000 per NIGHT, so you can see the potential a second unit could have on your mortgage payment!  If you don’t like the vacation rental crowd, you can still rent on a 6 month or 1 year lease for a minimum of $2000/mo, even if the unit is the size of a closet without a garage or parking.  Ya, Newport Beach CA is that expensive and exclusive.

Here are the 3 best property duplex deals on Balboa Peninsula right now:
