Property Management

Vacation Rentals

 

Get away from it all and retreat to the mountains!   Whether you're looking for an adventure or a quiet weekend by the fire, it can be found here.  Lake Arrowhead features Lake Arrowhead Village with outlet stores, free summer concerts, lakeside dining and more. Crestline is the home of Lake Gregory with fun lake activities including water slides, fishing and sunny beaches.  Running Springs is perfectly placed between Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead so you can easily enjoy both towns and what they have to offer!  To top it off, all of these communities are located within the San Bernardino National Forest, with countless opportunities for hiking, biking, off-roading, camping and so much more.

 

Whether you're planning to curl up with a good book, shop 'til you drop, enjoy a gourmet meal at a local restaurant or dive down a single track on your mountain bike, you're gonna want a soft place to rest your head at the end of the day,  a hot shower in the morning and a place to fix a cup of coffee or an old family recipe.  That's where we come in.

 

Live a great recipe, we've learned through the years that the best ingredients lead to the best meals.  This is true with vacation rental homes, too, believe it or not.  If you arrive to a dirty or ill-equipped rental, you'll spend more time and energy dealing with the problems than you will spend enjoying yourself.  If you start with a junky house, you'll likely end up with some bad memories.  That's not what you want...those are bad ingredients.

 

That's why we just don't rent bad houses!  We choose not to associate ourselves with owners who aren't willing to offer the best. Now that's a recipe using the finest ingredients.  In fact, that's a recipe worth sharing!  We want you to enjoy yourself.   If you do, chances are good that you'll come back...and tell your friends and family about us, too!

 

Each of our rental properties is unique and has a flavor of its own.  It is our job to expose you to those different flavors so you can choose your favorite.  We hope that our property descriptions and photographs will give you a true idea of each home.  That way, you can pick the one that fits you perfectly.  And if the house fits you well,  great memories will be a natural result!

 

Fulltime Rentals

 

What could be better than living a mile closer to heaven?  To call Lake Arrowhead, Crestline or Running Springs "home" is something that many dream of, but few experience.  Enjoy the sense of community that we share and the simpler life.  Though the conveniences of the city are but a short drive away, it is always nice to come home to the mountains!

 

Looking for a fulltime rental can be hard.  Finding the perfect place to "hang your hat" can be a difficult process.  Whether you're moving to the area for the first time or moving into a new chapter of your life, changing residences can be one of life's most stressful times.  At Mountain Country Realty, we understand this and try to make it as easy as possible for you.  We're here to help.  

 

Likewise, we understand that there are many questions and concerns that owners have when they consider using their mountain home as a fulltime rental.  How much rent can be charged?  What if the tenants damage the home?  What are the fees and costs involved?  What happens when repairs are needed?  How are applicants screened?  The list goes on...

 

Our property managers are happy to share from their experiences and training about how they avoid most of the "nightmare" scenarios that people like to tell about renting their homes.  Using your property as a fulltime rental can be a very good way to provide a supplemental income and to accrue equity in your property.   There are some basic techniques that we employ to minimize the downsides and capitalize on the positive aspects!  

 

Mountain Country Realty grows primarily as a result of personal references and word-of-mouth in the community because we treat our clients like family.  From the first time you meet with us, you'll see a clear difference from other property management companies. Contact us today and experience this difference for yourself. 

 

Property Management

 

Let our licensed, trained and experienced property managers handle the legalities, logistics and details of renting your mountain home.  Whether you own a fulltime or vacation rental property, Mountain Country Realty will show you why we provide service superior to other local property management companies.

 

All of our lives move at a rapid pace and technology plays a large part in that.  The scramble to "keep all the plates spinning" can be overwhelming at times.  Trying to manage a rental may seem like the last thing you want to add to mix!  Sure, you could use the money.  Yes, the house sits empty alot of the time.  Of course it would be nice to get your investment to "work for you."   But how? When?  In my spare time?  Yeah, right!

 

Photography, web presence, booking engines, rent collection, income and expense reports, cancellations, security deposits, late payments, bounced checks, damage, maintenance, search engine optimization, emergencies, 1099's, move-in reports, evictions, permits, bed tax, etc.  Yes, there are many facets to successful property management.  Perhaps it is worth investing in professionals who do this for a living!

 

We liken property management to auto repair.   Sure, you might know how to change the oil and rotate the tires.  Heck, maybe you could even rebuild an engine!  But is it the highest and best use of your time and energy?  Are there other priorities in your life that take precedence?  Is there a chance that someone else could do that job while you focus on other things?  If the answer is yes, then please get in touch with us.  We'll handle the rental.  You enjoy the income it provides without the headaches.  Sounds like a good deal to us!
