About 30 miles west of Santa Barbara along the Pacific coastline lies a tiny, largely undeveloped community called Gaviota. The area around Gaviota is popular for industries such as organic farming, ranching, and woodworking and the community itself is home to The Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institute, a marine mammal rehabilitation center.
Utopia Management is pleased to manage a wide range of property types, including single family homes, condos, and apartments, as well as commercial and office buildings for our clients. If you are considering purchasing any type of rental property in the 93117 zip code, which includes the quaint and lovely Gaviota community, we are pleased to offer you a range of management services.
Marketing and Advertising: Our dominant position in the marketplace and well-established marketing program consistently allows us to find a tenant for virtually any vacancy within thirty days. In addition to utilizing traditional property signage and our referral base, we will place listings for your property on a range of the most popular rental sites, ensuring a high level of traffic.
Tenant Screening: Our process of tenant screening is as thorough as possible so you can always feel confident with the tenant we place in your property. We’ll run background and credit checks, verify driver’s licenses and social security cards, and contact previous landlords to make sure that the applicant has a good rental history. We even offer the optional Utopia Eviction Protection Program to protect you against any unforeseen eviction-related difficulties.
Management and Consulting: Your Utopia Management team is made up of skilled professionals who not only have industry specific training, but also a deep understanding of the local market. This makes them ideally suited to help you manage all aspects of your property, from getting it rent-ready to handling any legal matters that may crop up from time to time. We do all that we can to care for our clients and their tenants, including taking care of day-to-day tasks like rent collection and HOA rule enforcement.
Maintenance and Repairs: Keeping your property in top condition is an important, but tiresome task of property ownership. Utopia Management is happy to handle all maintenance and repair needs either with our own team of skilled technicians or by hiring the work out to a third party vendor.
Accounting: The owner’s web portal on our website allows you to log in and view a monthly statement for any property that we manage for you. This statement shows all of the financial activity for the property, including rents received and bills that we have paid out on your behalf. If you ever have any questions, you can contact our accounting staff and speak with someone directly.
