Marketing Your Rental
Our successful marketing campaigns utilize high quality listing services that send your advertisements across the web. Our digital campaigns grab the attention of prospective tenants in an instant. Our team also runs local marketing events to quickly obtain the perfect tenants for each of your open investment properties. We strive to maintain a 30-day turnaround time from listing to contract signing.
The screening process we employ drastically reduces the risk of future evictions or property damage by your tenants. We only accept tenants with a positive rental history and strong income background. We never rush through the screening procedure to secure the tenant within our target time frame. Our team takes the tenant acquisition process seriously to appropriately protect your investment properties.
Our team offers consultation services that prepare you for the property management process. Our consultations guide you through common listing tactics, identity screening procedures, and rent collection methods. We hope that you can learn new information and gain confidence from spending time with our skilled consultants.
Each of the properties on our management roster receives all maintenance and repair services through our company. We either send out our own licensed professionals (Lic. #792427) or contract out the work to a third party. We strive to keep your investment properties in great shape to net solid returns from each rental period.
In order to keep close watch on the financial performance of your investment property, you must regularly tally up expenses and revenue to create a precise overview. To streamline this process, we have our accounting team generate a monthly financial report that details all of that information for you. You can find these forms waiting for you in your Utopia web portal each month.
Utopia Property Management will provide you with the support you need to navigate tough tasks regarding your rental units. Our team will help you easily oversee your finances, find tenants, and repair rentals as required.
