At Utopia Property Management, we offer a variety of management services. We have twenty years of experience working in the Southern California property management industry, and we are able to use our vast knowledge of the local housing market to create rental strategies that will best suit your needs. Some of our basic Westlake Village services include:
Advertising and marketing: When we are marketing your property, we will use a mixture of traditional and web-based advertising. We will conduct marketing events in your community, place advertisements in local newspapers, and list your property on some of the top rental websites. Our goal is to find the right tenant and have a contract signed within thirty days.
Tenant screening: You don’t want just any tenant in your Westlake Village property—you want the perfect tenant. We do a thorough screening of every potential tenant. This includes credit checks, background checks, and identity verification. We will also check if the tenant has had any previous evictions, and we will look through their employment history. This screening helps us find tenants who will pay rent on time and who have a low chance of eviction.
Consulting and management: At Utopia, we are here to support you. We can help you through every step of the rental process, and we can teach you everything from staging a home to managing rent collection. Our terrific local property managers are available to answer any questions that you may have.
Maintenance services: We have a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427), and we employ a stellar team of maintenance professionals who can complete most repairs themselves. If they can’t fix the problem, we’ll contact one of our approved third-party vendors. We’re able to do this quickly and at a low-cost to you.
Accounting: Our accounting team will compile comprehensive, monthly financial reports. They will then upload these reports to your Utopia web portal, which will cover all of your expense items and revenue. The reporting will tell you everything that you need to know about your property’s financial performance.
