Can I refer my friends to you for property management services?
Of course, and thank you for asking. Anyone interested in our services can call our office at (530) 566-9223 or contact us here.
Can I use your services if I already have an agent listing my home for sale?
NVPM respects the Law of Agency and will work side by side with your Realtor. If a Resident is found before a Buyer is found, then you simply remove your listing from the sales market. If your Realtor finds a Buyer before a Resident is found, then you simply send us a copy of your contract and you can terminate without paying the full contract termination penalty.
Do you have a pet or smoking policy for properties that you manage?
It is recommended that a property owner be pet friendly where possible. Our standard pet fee to charge the tenant is $500 per pet for up to two (2) pets. Please note that by not accepting or considering pets you may be limiting your rental audience. Dog breeds considered aggressive are restricted. No smoking is allowed at any of our managed properties.

I would like to manage my property myself. Can you help me find a tenant?
Yes, we call this our “One Time Lease Up” service option. We will find a well-qualified resident, prepare the lease between you and the resident, collect the first month’s rent and collect the security deposit. We then turn the lease and security deposit over to you and you assume management responsibilities for the lease term.
Should I rent or sell my home?
This is a popular discussion point in our given economy. If you are undecided on renting versus selling then consider this scenario: Why not market your home for sale and rent at the same time? Park Avenue Properties has the resources and relationships with top producing Realtors to help you market your home for sale while searching for a well-qualified tenant at the same time. We will refer you to a top producer at no charge to you to ensure you have the absolute best resources to assist you in your real estate needs. When the best first option, Buyer or Renter, comes along then simply terminate the other option.
What fees will you charge me?
For our Turn-Key service option, the following applies:
There are no hidden fees or monies due upfront. If your property is rented within 1 – 60 days of listing the rate is 10%, 60 – 120 days the rate is 9%, 121 days or longer the rate is 8%.

When and how do you disburse payments to homeowners/landlords?
All rent is due on the 1st and late after the 5th. This said, property owners are paid after rent is collected, cleared and Fees/charges deducted. The 15th of that month is generally when you will receive your electronic ACH deposit depending on weekends and holidays. A monthly statement will be posted to the online owner portal and will include all income, expenses and owner draws collected and disbursed during the month. Owner draw payments are disbursed via direct deposit to a checking or savings account of your choosing. There is no additional charge to our homeowners for this service.
Where do you manage properties?
Our general rule of thumb is that we manage properties in Chico and a little outside of it
