Serving All of Fullerton
Fullerton is a city that is known for education. California State University, Fullerton and Fullerton College boast enrollment numbers of nearly 60,000 students combined. Conveniently located next to La Habra and Brea, the surrounding areas offer a blend of mixed-use commercial and light industrial buildings and residential buildings of all types. From affordable, student-biased apartments to lavish, million dollar homes, Fullerton truly offers housing and business opportunities for everyone. If you’re seeking Fullerton property management services for your apartment unit(s), condo, single-family home, or commercial building, contact Utopia Property Management today.
At Utopia, we pride ourselves on creating an exceptional experience for both our property owners and their tenants. We deliver a comprehensive package of management services that can help the property owner drive increased revenues, while more effectively managing expenses. Some of the basic Fullerton rental services we offer include:
Marketing and advertising: It isn’t enough these days to simply stake a sign in the front yard and wait for phone calls. We’ll complete a marketing program that includes activities like local advertising and sign utilization, but we take it a step further and post your rental listing on numerous rental websites. We’ll then draw upon our deep network of industry professionals to help shine the spotlight on your residential or commercial listing. Our goal is to have a tenant secured and a contract signed within 30 days.
Tenant screening services: Finding the right tenant for your Fullerton rental is the key. We conduct a thorough screening process that includes a background/credit check and other key verifications. The background and credit check can help us uncover a host of issues – from previous evictions to serious derogatory credit concerns that may hint at future problems. We’ll also verify the prospective tenant’s income level, employment status, and identity. All of these steps help us ensure that the future tenant embodies the characteristics of a great tenant.
Management and consulting services: We’ve been operating continuously in Southern California for the past twenty years. In that time we’ve learned quite a lot about managing properties of all types, and we’re excited to be able to consult with you and share our knowledge. From guiding you on prepping your home or office for a client showing, to specific insights into local market trends and appropriate rent levels, we’ll be there to help – every step of the way.
Repairs and maintenance: Any property is going to require repairs and maintenance work at some point. While you certainly can handle this yourself, why bother? Our professional and highly trained maintenance staff can address most concerns in-house. If not, we’ll contact a third-party repair firm from our approved vendor list to complete the task. We operate under a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) and can often complete work quicker and cheaper than most third parties.
Accounting: Our dedicated accounting team will compile monthly reports that are sent directly to your Utopia web portal. These reports indicate all of the revenue and expense items for the month, and give you a clear picture of the financial performance of your rental property.
