Serving All of Costa Mesa
Costa Mesa is a diverse city that is located in the heart of Orange County. With a population hovering right around the 110,000 mark, it is a city that offers a host of exciting destinations, an engaging arts scene, and world-class shopping – especially at the South Coast Plaza shopping center. If you’re looking for Costa Mesa property management services and need a world-class management firm to help you with your investment property portfolio, contact Utopia Property Management today! We will help you maximize the revenue potential of each of your units – whether you own apartments, single-family homes, a condo, or even a commercial building.
From our humble beginnings in 1994, we’ve grown Utopia to become the single largest management company in Southern California. To do this, we’ve had to design a management program that delivers an incredible experience for our property owners and their tenants. Some of the basic Costa Mesa rental services that we include are:
Marketing your property: Take the guesswork out of finding your next tenant – and leave it to us! We will market your property on high-producing rental websites that will dramatically increase the visibility of your residence or business facility. We also continue to market through local channels and with high impact signage. The goal is to have a tenant secured and a contract signed within thirty days.
Tenant sourcing and screening: To find a tenant isn’t too difficult – especially when you employ a marketing strategy like we do. But finding the right tenant takes a bit of preparation, the right marketing approach, and most importantly – a thorough investigation of the applicant. We’ll conduct a background check and credit screening to ensure the potential tenant is free from derogatory marks on their credit or serious rental concerns like eviction records.
Management consulting: No matter what stage you find yourself in – newcomer to the rental market or seasoned investment pro, you’ll find that our knowledge of Costa Mesa and the surrounding area offers a great advantage for any property owner. We can help you prep new homes for the rental market, assist in transitioning from an owner occupied unit to a rental, or provide insight into the appropriate rental amount for your targeted area.
Maintenance: We possess a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) and employ an amazing staff of maintenance professionals who can address practically any repair or service issue with ease. Our rates are consistently lower than the average third-party vendor, and it makes the entire process quite simple when you have your property management company take care of these types of issues. Don’t waste your own valuable time with maintenance concerns – leave it to the professionals at Utopia Property Management.
Accounting: To simplify the financial accounting related to your rental properties, our accounting department will complete and distribute concise financial reports to your Utopia web portal each month. These reports will tell the entire story of your rental units – all of the revenue and expense items are clearly listed, along with any supporting documents, to help you gauge the performance of your properties.
When you’re ready to partner with the absolute best property management company for your Costa Mesa-based residence or commercial site, contact Utopia Property Management. We’re looking forward to helping you realize even greater levels of success across your entire investment property portfolio.
