Bakersfield vs. Nearby Cities

When compared to larger cities on California’s southern coastline, the housing market in Bakersfield is a breath of fresh air. The median listing price for Bakersfield homes is often around $250,000, and that price can spike a bit higher at times. Compare that to a median listing price significantly above $700,000 in Los Angeles.

The median home value in Bakersfield is typically less than $250,000. This is a bit higher than smaller cities within a 40-mile radius, like Lake Isabella and Maricopa. Both of these cities offer median home values under $200,000 and median listing prices below $200,000. Lamont is less than 15 miles to the south and boasts a median sales price well below $150,000.

Bakersfield Property Managers

A property manager is a trustworthy second hand when it comes to all aspects of managing rental property. From enforcing the rules to ensure a safe, sanitary and friendly living environment to collecting rent and finding quality tenants, an efficient manager will ensure that your interests are fully protected at all times.

Bakersfield Property Management Company Fees

Negotiating a standard management fee is only the first step when hiring a property manager in Bakersfield. Make sure that you know what specific tasks are covered by that fee. You can then ask about additional fees for tasks not covered. For instance, your fee may cover the supervision of repairs but not the cost of materials and labor.

California Landlord/Tenant Laws

  • When a landlord discovers that a tenant has broken the leasing agreement by subletting their unit, the landlord can issue an unconditional quit notice.
  • The landlord must give the tenant three days to vacate the property before starting the eviction process.
  • If a landlord needs to enter an occupied rental property, they must notify the tenant at least 24 hours in advance if the situation is not an emergency.
