High visibility is key when it comes to marketing your rental property. Utopia Management is one of the leading source for rental properties in the Inland Empire, and many renters turn to us first when beginning their rental search. Just listing with Utopia will expose your property to a wealth of potential tenants. Further, we put listings on the most visited rental sites (including utopiamanagement.com), and classic property signage to expand visibility for your property. Our techniques and presence in the marketplace translate to our ability to quickly fill vacancies with reliable tenants at the most profitable rental rates.
Placement of the right tenant is crucial to the success of your rental property, and Utopia Management’s thorough tenant screening process is designed to assist in the elimination of unwanted potential liabilities. We verify identity documentation such as social security cards and licenses, employment and paystubs, industry specific credit reports with eviction searches, and reach out to prior landlords to obtain rental references. By selecting only qualified tenants, we maintain low delinquency rates and consistently have an eviction rate of less than 1%. Our “Utopia Eviction Protection Program” is available for owners looking for even greater security and peace of mind.
We are prepared to handle any maintenance or repair needs for your rental property. An extensive history in the marketplace has given us the opportunity to work with a variety of local contractors and develop a list of the best licensed and insured vendors. Utopia Management also holds a general contractor’s license (#792427) with skilled in-house technicians for maintenance needs and complicated repairs that may otherwise be difficult to outsource. Our range of available options enables us to respond quickly, and our professional history with local providers ensures that our clients receive the lowest prices for the best quality services.

The Inland Empire is a metropolitan area in Southern California, adjacent to Los Angeles. The area typically referred to as Inland Empire includes cities in western Riverside County, southwestern San Bernardino County, and sometimes also the desert communities in Palm Springs and the rest of the Coachella Valley.
The Inland Empire area spans more than 27,000 square miles. The area was once home to major citrus, dairy, and winemaking productions, though rapidly growing population has led to mostly residential, industrial, and commercial development in recent decades.
In 2018 the Inland Empire housing supply was the 17th tightest in the nation; in 2017 it was the 21st. In March of 2019, the consumer pricing indexes for Riverside and San Bernardino counties showed the cost of renting was up 4.2% year-over-year.
A study from Apartment List reported that nearly 33% of all searches of local rental properties in the Inland Empire were from out-of-towners.
