If you utilize the services of Utopia to help you find the perfect tenant for your Lompoc investment property, then we will make it our priority to have papers signed and a tenant moved in within 30 days of assuming control over the marketing efforts. We strive to cast a wide net, using internet listings and word-of-mouth advertising via our local agents in the Lompoc area. Our expertise and “all-systems-go” approach to marketing your investment property means we’ll optimize your chances at getting a qualified tenant quickly.
As part of qualification process, we review the prospective tenant’s rental and employment history. If there are any previous evictions, we make ourselves aware of them. We also process extensive credit checks, background checks, and ID verification. Before the tenant moves into your property we arrange to meet them via an open house or a showing. We collect the first and last month’s rent up-front, along with the security deposit. Our process results in a low risk of evictions, happy tenants and happy property owners.

Because we operate under a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427), we are able to complete most maintenance tasks in-house, thereby saving money for our clients. In the event we do need to outsource a project, we use an approved vendor list. Another advantage of having in-house maintenance is that we are usually able to service repair jobs faster.
We also take the financial health of your investment property seriously. We have a dedicated team of accounting professionals who regularly generate reports that speak to your property’s financial performance. You can access these reports at any time by using our secure online portal. These reports are available at any time via your PC or mobile device, and they will give you a clear indication of how well your properties are performing financially. We also handle online direct deposits from tenants and generate end of year reports. Additionally, we take it upon ourselves to prepare and serve all notices of rental increases to your tenants.
