We have over two decades of experience in helping clients enjoy the benefits of their real estate investments, without any of the day-to-day hassles. Your Utopia Management team will handle all of the mundane tasks of property management, while helping you to make your Torrance rental property a success. The following five services make up our comprehensive suite of management services:
Marketing and Advertising: To advertise your rental vacancies, we will start by listing your property on all of the most popular property websites - building an extensive online presence. Then we will utilize property signage and the Utopia referral base to ensure that your property gets the exposure it deserves.
Tenant Screening: Our thorough tenant screening process weeds out most potential problems before a contract is signed. In addition to the expected background and credit checks, we also verify candidates’ employment and income status and even contact previous landlords to make sure that we find you a great tenant.
Management and Consulting: We are happy to take the burden of daily management tasks, like collecting rent and enforcing rental agreements, off your hands. You can also count on the property specialists at Utopia Management to advise you on making important decisions about your property, such as assessing competitive rents and deciding on how to improve your property to raise its value.
Maintenance and Repairs: No matter how new or well-kept a property may be, it will need periodic maintenance and emergency repair work from time to time. That is why at Utopia Management we have relationships with trustworthy local vendors. We also maintain our own general contractor’s license (#792427). This enables us to decide whether each job would be best handled by a third-party contractor or our own skilled maintenance technicians.
Accounting: To ensure that you stay up-to-date on the financial performance of your rental property investment, our skilled team of accountants will provide you with accurate and detailed monthly statements. You can log in to your Utopia web portal at any time to view a confidential report of the previous month’s revenues and expenses.
