Utopia Management
The Quality Company

Serving All of Baylands

Baylands offers stunning views of the adjacent Nature Preserve and is positioned to enjoy the sunny shores of the Bay itself. This is a beautiful place to behold, and living nearby is a true gift for the outdoors enthusiast. Palo Alto, Sunnyvale and Mountain View are just minutes away by car, while trips into San Francisco are easily accomplished heading north on I-280. The local area offers a spectacular view from almost any angle, and local residents enjoy a diverse mix of residential properties from which to choose.

 

If you own a rental home or commercial building around the Baylands area, partner with Utopia Management today and see just how easy it is to manage your portfolio and maximize profits at the same time. We offer a wide range of services, including:

 

Marketing your rental: Finding tenants is the goal during this phase, and our comprehensive approach to marketing your Baylands-area rental will include both traditional and web-based tactics. Our mission is simple - obtaining a signed contract and having a tenant in place in 30 days or less.

 

Finding/verifying tenants: Once we narrow down the list of applicants, we’ll pre-screen anyone who meets our basic parameters. We then check for any criminal background issues and verify credit, income, employment, identity and rental history. This thorough process virtually eliminates late or missed payments and keeps eviction rates low.

 

Total management or consulting: We can either act as consultants as you manage your portfolio yourself, or you can entrust us with a total management package that can free up your time for other ventures. Your local real estate market expert can manage your homes or commercial buildings with ease, and take care of all the required activities you don’t want to worry about.

 

Repair professionals: From addressing plumbing or electrical issues, all the way up to major renovation projects, our repair crew can do it all. Operating under our California general contractor’s license, our in-house team can be dispatched via the Utopia Web Portal for fast, easy and affordable service - any time of the day or night.

 

Financial report preparation: Our dedicated team of financial professionals will create periodic financial statements for your review, all sent to you through your Utopia Portal. Pull these reports up from your smartphone, tablet or computer, whenever it is convenient for you.

 

Baylands is for nature lovers, but its proximity to all the Bay has to offer makes it the ideal home for anyone with an appreciation for the outdoors, the big city, and cultural opportunities. For more information about Baylands property management, contact Utopia Management today!

THOROUGH TENANT SCREENING AND LESS THAN 1% EVICTION RATE

Placing the right tenant is the single most important step in rental management. Our applicant screening includes income, rental history, employment, and eviction search to evaluate for potential delinquency issues. We verify identification, social security cards and pay stubs, along with contacting prior landlords for recommendations, keeping the delinquency rate to a minimum. Our thorough screening process for potential tenants has consistently kept our eviction rate at less than one percent.

Utopia also provides our owners with the optional “Utopia® Eviction Protection Program” for further peace of mind.  As a management company, we have many procedures in place to assist in the elimination of potential liabilities.
