Rental Property Marketing
We use a multifaceted strategy when it comes to advertising and marketing your rental property. Our team understands the importance of getting your property seen by the right people and uses not only premium website advertising, but also offline advertising efforts to increase exposure. Our goal is to fill your property within 30 days, so we pull out all the stops when it comes to our marketing efforts.
Although it is our goal to rent your property within 30 days, we take the utmost in care when it comes to tenant selection. We work quickly but we'll never sacrifice quality. Our rigorous screening process checks for employment history, criminal history, credit score, identity verification, and more. This ensures that you won’t waste time or money with missed rent or other issues.
Consulting and Advice
Managing a rental property isn’t always easy. We offer consulting and advisory services to all of our clients. So, whether you’ve been in the investment property business for one day or many years, we can help you reach a higher level of success. For example, we can help you stage and prepare your rental home so that it is as attractive as possible to prospective tenants. We’re here to help guide you every step of the way, so you can reach your investment goals.

Placing the right tenant is the single most important step in rental management. Our applicant screening includes income, rental history, employment, and eviction search to evaluate for potential delinquency issues. We verify identification, social security cards and pay stubs, along with contacting prior landlords for recommendations, keeping the delinquency rate to a minimum. Our thorough screening process for potential tenants has consistently kept our eviction rate at less than one percent.
Utopia also provides our owners with the optional “Utopia® Eviction Protection Program” for further peace of mind. As a management company, we have many procedures in place to assist in the elimination of potential liabilities.
Maintaining your rental property, as well as being available to deal with emergency repairs, can be a source of frustration for landlords. At Utopia, we have a staff of in-house technicians available for most work, under general contractors license (#792427), meaning we can complete work as quickly as possible and pass the savings on to our clients. When necessary, we also have a network of trusted vendors for specialized work, some of which we have been using for over fifteen years. This relationship translates to purchasing power to help Utopia’s clients get a better than market price.
Managing both expenses and income is all handled by our accounting department with use of your owner web portal. Tenants appreciate the ability to pay rent online, which also decreases delinquency. All expenses and receipts are tracked online and available to you at any time. A monthly statement includes all financial activity and copies of the bills we paid on your behalf. Your December statement has all of your annual figures for tax purposes. If you ever have questions regarding your statement, you can contact one of our helpful accounting staff members.
