Do you Ziprent? Smart Property Owners Do
Albany is a diverse town located just north of Berkeley. Because of its close proximity to UC Berkeley and the many colleges with the town's limits, there is a thriving and culturally diverse student population. Rents tend to be a bit lower than the surrounding areas, making this an attractive place for students or those looking for more affordable housing options outside of the city.

Here are just a sample of frequently asked questions we receive. For the full list please see our FAQ Page
Is there a contract minimum to work with you?
We have a no commitment contract, you can cancel at any time.
Describe your On-Demand Showing Process?
When your property is move-in / photo ready, we will schedule a member of our staff to come by the property to take photos, perform a walkthrough, and install our smart lockbox.
We will syndicate you posting within 24-48 hours of receiving the photos to all of the major listing sites. Interested parties will be able to select a 2 hour showing window to view the property.
We collect their name, phone number, email address, and IP address. We then send a verification code to their phone number. Once verified, we send them a unique lockbox code that is valid for the 2 hour showing window they signed up for.
We then follow up and provide an application link and ask for feedback regarding the property.
When can photos be taken and the property listed?
We can usually schedule to come out to take photos, do a walk-through and take keys within 24-48 hours. We prefer to take photos when the property is completely empty and move-in ready and can generally get a listing online within 24-48 hours of taking photos. So, in general, we can have your listing up within 2-4 days of you inquiring about our services!
How do you handle maintenance issues?
When a tenant submits a maintenance request, our Repairs department will do their due diligence to identify the issue and make sure it warrants a visit from the appropriate vendor.
We will surface the bid to you for your approval and then coordinate with the vendor and tenant to get the issue resolved.
We do not charge a maintenance fee so we are cognizant of finding vendors who provide the right balance of quality vs price.
