Utopia Management
The Quality Company

Serving All of Merced County

Merced County Property Management


The Merced County area is one that is highly populated. There are tons of things to do in the area, as well as businesses that are looking for quality workers. That is one of the main reasons that so many people are moving into this area. However, are they all buying homes? No, they are not! Recent news would make it sound like more people are buying a home rather than renting. While it may be true that more people are buying right now, there are still many people not interested in buying a home. They want to rent a home or apartment for their time in this county. Why the interest in rentals? 


Many people simply do not want to be homeowners. They want the freedom that comes with having a rental property rather than having to take on the responsibility of being a homeowner. With this being said, for those who have property in this area, they are going to find that now may be the time to turn this into rental income. However, we recommend that you do not do this on your own.


Work With Us


Who are we? We are Merced County Property Management. We are a full service property management firm that has the experience that it takes to make rentals successful on the market, while also ensuring that the owners of this property are happy. We take away all the guess work of getting a home onto the business and handle this with capable hands. For those who are new to this market, they are going to find that our expertise is going to be invaluable and can save them a lot of stress later down the road.


What Do We Do?


As stated before, Merced County Property Management is a full service property management firm. This means that we do it all when it comes to your rental property. Our goal is to take away all the work from you while you simply enjoy having rental income. Some of the things that we do include:


- Ensuring that the home is ready for the rental market. We know what renters are looking for and this advice is going to prove valuable when you are wanting to ensure that your home is one that renters want to rent.

- We also suggest a fair price for the home each month so that you are not getting ripped off or charging too much resulting in no one being interested in this home.

- Once the home is ready to be advertised, we handle all the advertising for you. We reach a huge audience in hopes that we will attract even more applications. The more applications, the greater the chance of getting a person that is going to truly respect this home.

- We use our tenant screening services to ensure that the tenant chosen is going to be one that will treat your home as it should be treated, and trustworthy in terms of paying.


Then we handle the day to day managing of this home. You cannot go wrong when you work with us!
