Serving All of Vernon
Vernon is a small city located just 5 miles south of downtown Los Angeles in the 90058 zip code area. It prides itself on being “exclusively industrial” and is home to 1,800 businesses, including many warehouses and factories. Although it houses only slightly more than 100 residents, it employs more than 50,000 men and women. Since the city tailors to business needs, it offers commercial entities many advantages over its neighboring cities, such as lower permit fees and utility rates. If you are considering an investment in commercial or industrial rental properties in Vernon, let Utopia Management help you get the most out of your enterprise.
We have a comprehensive suite of services that cover everything from advertising your property to handling the day-to-day management of each rental unit. When you choose Utopia Management to manage your Vernon rental property, you know that you are getting the expertise and experience of Southern California’s premier property management company. Our basic services include the following:
Marketing and Advertising: To get the word out about your Vernon rental property, we will begin by creating an extensive online presence. Our own website, https://utopiamanagement.com, is the most trafficked property management website in Southern California. We will also list your property on other popular websites, in addition to making use of property signage and our wide referral base.
Tenant Screening: Utopia Management is proud of our consistently low eviction rate, which we maintain by putting every potential tenant through a thorough screening process. This process includes background and credit checks, verifications for employment, income, and identity, and even contacting prior landlords.
Management and Consulting: However, our work often begins even before the search for the perfect tenant begins. Your team of Utopia Management professionals can help you to get your property rent-ready, and they’ll use their knowledge of current local market trends to help you assess an appropriate rent. Once your tenant has signed a contract, we will take over the day-to-day tasks like collecting rent, enforcing regulations, and even serving legal notices when necessary.
Maintenance and Repair: We maintain a list of preferred vendors in the Venice area that help us to select the perfect contractor for any maintenance or repair job. We also maintain a general contractor’s license (#792427) that allows us to complete some work in-house when we feel that it would be more effective, or less expensive, to do so.
Accounting: Keeping track of your financial investment is an important part of owning rental property. That is why our team of skilled accountants works hard to provide you with detailed monthly reports. Log in to your Utopia web portal at any time to see an itemized list of all financial activity for the previous month.
Choosing Utopia Management to manage your rental property in Venice might just be the best decision you will make as a property owner. We will take care of you, your property, and your tenants with all of the skill and expertise that has made us an industry leader for over twenty years. Call us today to find out more.
