We offer property management services that range from marketing and advertising to rent collection and accounting. When you partner with us, you’ll benefit from our years of industry experience and the efforts of our dedicated professional team. Here are some of the property management tasks we handle:
A good marketing campaign is essential to renting your investment property in a hurry. Through our comprehensive advertising, your Westwood property will be in front of interested tenants both online and off. Our multifaceted approach to marketing helps to ensure high visibility and a high chance of successful rentals. We’ll aim to have your vacancy filled in just 30 days.
Your investment property won’t make you any money until it is occupied by a renter, which is why we aim to have a renter in place within a month. In addition to acquiring tenants, we also screen each and every qualified applicant. Our screening process includes employment verification, credit history, and a criminal background check. This helps to ensure that your properties are occupied by responsible tenants and protects against unpaid rent and eviction concerns.
It is important for property investors to always know how their properties are doing. This is why we provide detailed financial reports through our web portal. It is easy to log in and take a look at all of the financial details associated with your rental. We also collect rent from your tenants and if payments are late, we send collection emails until all payments are paid in full. Our efficient financial reporting services will keep you informed and help you to succeed as an investor.
Maintenance and Repairs
For all the little — and not so little — maintenance emergencies that can occur, we’ll be there. Our company operates under a contractor’s license, which lowers expenses and minimizes hassles normally associated with repair jobs. Our maintenance staff responds to repair calls by priority and takes care of any property problems quickly and efficiently. We’ll also handle all of the regular maintenance that comes along with owning rental property to ensure your properties are always at their best.
Property investing comes with a lot of questions. We offer consulting; for example we can teach you about activities like staging your property – which means preparing it for a showing. There are lots of little tricks that entice potential renters and we know all of them. We’ll help you to make your property the absolute best it can be, so you can enjoy a higher level of success than ever before. Call Utopia Management today — we’re ready to give you the highly personalized property management services you deserve!
