Located about ten miles west of Santa Maria, Guadalupe is a small city in the 93434 zip code within Santa Barbara County. Most of the land in the area is used either for agriculture or oil production. However, west of town and alongside the Pacific coast, lies the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes. This sandy area has been the location for many popular film sets, including Cecil B. DeMille’s Ten Commandments and scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.
There are plenty of real estate investment opportunities in Guadalupe. Whether you are a seasoned property owner or you are considering making your first rental property purchase, Utopia Management can provide you with a wide range of services to take the worry out of daily property management tasks. Our services include:
Marketing and Advertising: To make sure that your Guadalupe property gets the exposure it deserves, we will use a blend of online and offline marketing strategies. Our own website is a highly trafficked property management site in Southern California. In addition to listing your property there, we will place it on other popular rental sites and employ traditional property signage – as well as making use of the Utopia referral base.
Tenant Screening: Finding you a great tenant is one of our main concerns, which is why we use a rigorous process for tenant screening. In addition to the traditional industry-standard credit checks, we verify employment, income, and previous rental history. We also do a search for any prior evictions and even offer the optional Utopia Eviction Protection Program for total peace of mind.
Management and Consulting: When you choose Utopia Management to handle your Guadalupe property, we will do all that we can to take care of you, your property, and your tenants. We will take over virtually all of the day-to-day tasks, such as collecting rent and security deposits, enforcing HOA regulations, and serving legal notices. We will also be on hand to help answer any questions you may have about rental-related issues like assessing a fair rent for the area or improving your property to increase its value.
Maintenance and Repairs: Whether the matter is one of routine maintenance or emergency repair, Utopia Management is there to take care of every need. Although we have a team of skilled technicians who handles some jobs themselves, we often contract the work out to carefully selected local vendors whom we trust. Whoever does the work, we ensure that it is done promptly and professionally.
Accounting: Monthly financial statements are posted to your owner’s web portal, which you can access from our website whenever you want. This statement shows all of the financial activity for your property, including rents received and copies of bills paid on your behalf. This allows you to keep tabs on the financial health of your property, from just about anywhere.
As Southern California’s largest and most trusted property management company, we have the experience you need to help you turn your Guadalupe rental property into a successful investment venture. Call us today to find out what we can do for you.
