Merced Property Management Company Earning Trust Throughout California

At River Properties, we give you back your time and your peace of mind. Renting out a home in California is increasingly more complex, whether you’re an individual landlord who is just getting started or a successful investor growing your portfolio.

The rental property owners we work with have careers, families, and passions. They don’t have time to think about marketing, screening, leasing, rent collection, and maintenance. That’s why we are here; to expertly navigate the rental market throughout California.

Owners Trust the Higher Standards of River Drive Properties, Inc.

River Drive was created based on three founding principles, and those values still guide our business today: 

Service. Passion. Commitment. 

When we talk about service, we mean extraordinary service. We mean the kind of service that welcomes communication, offers solutions, and leaves every client and customer with a smile and a sense of resolution. We are passionate about increasing client returns and creating fantastic rental experiences. River Drive Properties is committed to leading the California property management industry. We’re not afraid to think creatively, and our actions show it.


Service: Understanding Your Needs

You’re looking for an experienced Merced property management company that can care for your investment property no matter where it’s located in California. You need a team of talented professionals that can do more than collect rent and respond to maintenance. We’re that team. At River Drive Properties, we invest in technology to improve communication. We watch the real estate and rental markets throughout California carefully, and we stay on top of all the changing laws to ensure you’re protected and your property is compliant. We deliver a better investment experience – where you’re earning more and worrying less.


Passion: We Love Your Property

Property management is all we do. Our team of property managers are not distracted with sales or contracting jobs. We aren’t scheming to get rich quick with the latest mortgage product or trying to talk our clients into risky new investments. We do one thing and we do it well: we manage California investment properties. Bring us your single-family home in the Monterey suburbs, your multi-family units in Fresno, or your apartment buildings in San Diego. We are leaders in the property management industry because it’s our passion, and your investment property will be treated with care, quality, and concern.

Commitment: Relationships Matter

Property management in Merced County and throughout California requires the ability to develop and nurture relationships. We do that well at River Drive Properties, understanding that the way we work with vendors, residents, and community partners directly affects the income you earn on your rental homes. We believe in personal service because no two investors are the same, and customized management plans are the only way to ensure your unique property is performing as well as it can. You’ll love working with us.

Do You Know The Real Rental Value of Your Merced Property?

Ask us for a free rental analysis. It’s an important part of marketing your property and getting the attention you need from highly qualified tenants in Merced. We know the market and we understand what competing properties are offering and costing. 

Many investors and landlords think they know what their property is worth, but the real rental value is a complex number that depends on things like property location, condition, market strength, and even the season. We know how to attach a price that will optimize what you earn while ensuring you don’t chase away great tenants with a price that’s too high for the Merced rental market.

I’ve looked at many property management companies in Merced County and River Drive Properties is by far the easiest and most efficient found!! As a newer landlord, it can be stressful, with everything that needs to be taken care of. Joseph and Bryanna take care of things very quickly and are always friendly and understanding. They make things very easy from start to finish. Joseph is an exceptional property manager. I’m very happy I chose River Drive Properties!!

I have been very pleased to work with River Drive Properties since August, 2018. Joseph is a good PM. He responses to my concern and request in time. He provides proper suggestion to my for my rental property in Merced. The management fee is reasonable. The time from my first tenant moving out to the next one moving in is only 12 days. The rent was even higher than what I expected. I feel totally hassle free with this company. They do all things in professional ways. Thank you, River Drive Property. Thank you, Joseph.
