Marketing

Marketing is key to successful sales and rentals. Estey Real Estate provides a market analysis for each property either for sale or property management. With access to multiple listing services and Appfolio, we have access to data to assist in creating a marketing plan, analysis and other research to maximize your investment.

Our goal is to sell or lease your property as quickly as possible.

Applicant Screening

We process a complete credit report on each applicant over the age of 18. This report supplies us with the credit worthiness of this person, their amount of indebtedness plus job and rental history. The report verifies their employment, income payment records, unlawful detainers, eviction history, liens, credit scores, late payments, accounts opened, closed plus more.

This detailed report helps Estey find the best qualified resident for your property.

Exclusive to Estey clients is our Eviction Protection Plan (EPP). This is a benefit offered by Estey to our Estey filled and managed properties. Ask our property investment manager for details.

Credit Watch

Estey Real Estate and Property Management runs a credit report when an application is submitted for an available property.

There are three major credit agencies, each using slightly different system to evaluate and arrive at a credit score for each person (Equifax, Experian and Transunion). The score most people reference is the FICO score. The FICO score was developed by Fair Isaac and Company.

Each of these companies considers the data accumulated about you in your credit report. Some of the areas they use are:

 

Each of these items plus others are weighed to determine whether or not you qualify for the loan you are requesting. Plus, each company evaluates your credit differently. FICO scores range from 300 to 850, the higher the score, the better credit risk. Please be advised that some websites that advertise "Free credit reports" are not necessarily free.

You may keep abreast of your credit by running a free credit report from each agency once a year. Often people run credit reports from one of the companies every 4 months to check their credit report. For example: January 1 run a credit report using Equifax; May use Experian; September use Transunion, then in January start again with Equifax. It is free. If you use all three at one time, you cannot get a free report for another year.

AnnualCreditReport.com is the official site to help consumers to obtain their free credit report. You will never receive an email directly from the Annual Credit Report Request Service.

Benicia Area Information

Benicia Property Managers

Benicia is a waterside city in Solano County, California. The town can be divided into four areas: the East Side, the West Side, Southampton, and the industrial park. Most of the town's older homes are on the east and west sides. Southampton contains primarily single-family housing developments and condominiums, most of which were built between 1970 and 2000. The East Side includes the Benicia Arsenal, a former United States Army armory, which was bought by the city and is now used for a variety of purposes, most notably as live-work spaces for artists. The Arsenal is home to several historic landmark buildings such as The Clock Tower, the Camel Barn, and the Commanding Officers Quarters . The industrial park lies to the northeast of the residential areas of the city, and includes the Valero oil refinery. The Benicia State Recreation Area is on the far west edge of the city.

Benicia is an active sailing community. In additional to individual sailing out of the Benicia Marina, there are several organized events and competitions. Regular art exhibits and public art openings in the Arts Benicia Gallery at 991 Tyler Street in the armory. Also an annual art auction in the fall, a spring Open Studios event, and many art classes for adults and teens. Benicia Peddler's Fair is an outdoor event that began in 1963 with a few collectable and antique stores displaying their items on tables outside St. Paul's Church. Today, over 300 antique and collectable dealers as well as other vendors display their wares in booths that span approximately 11 blocks of First Street.
