Serving All of Centerville
Centerville Property Management
Did you know that there are tons of people who are looking to move into the area? For those who have noticed an influx of people in their neighborhood, they are often assuming that these people are buying their homes. However, many people are renting. While the media reports about how homes for sale on the market are going super quickly…which they are, there are still just as many people who are looking to rent a home. They want the flexibility that renting offers them versus having to buy a home. For those who own property and are ready to get their property onto the rental market, we recommend that you work with the professionals at Centerville property management.
We Find You The Right Tenant
One of the biggest aspects that Centerville property management helps with is finding the right tenant to live in your home. This is probably one of the biggest aspects that people worry about as they know that not having the right tenant can lead to tons of issues. After all, haven’t you heard the horror stories of how a tenant stopped paying a landlord and the landlord had a hard time in getting the person to move out of the rental?
This is what we can help to prevent. And how do we do this? We use our tenant screening services to look through the applicants that have applied to live here. These services are meant to look at their past rental history, criminal backgrounds and even credit scores to determine who is the best tenant to live in this property.
We Handle It All
Those who work with us often praise our management skills. And better yet, they enjoy the fact that they are not having to lift a finger when it comes to this property. Granted, we have clients who we manage their rental properties who want to be more involved, which is fine. And we have just as many clients who want to own the property and let us handle everything else. Even before we are looking through applications of the tenants who want to live here, we are advertising this home to the market, and looking at the home from a renter perspective, ensuring that it is ready for someone to move into.
After the tenant has moved into the home, we then handle everything else. If the tenant has an issue with the plumbing, they call us. If they are not paying on time, they deal with us. The idea with working with Centerville property management is that we handle this all without you having to be involved.
If you are ready to get onto the rental market, we are ready and waiting to help you. Regardless if you have one or five properties that you need someone to handle, we can do it. And you can rely on our professional services as the rental property and your satisfaction is what is our priority. Owning rental property is even better when you have the right pros on your side.
We know how to market your property.
Finding excellent tenants starts with making sure your property is visible and attractive. We install professional signage, create quality listings, describing your property thoroughly, and take beautiful photographs that showcase your properties highlights. We then list your property on all of the highly trafficked rental websites, including utopiamanagement.com.

Thorough Tenant Screening
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.
