Serving All of Sunset Beach
Sunset Beach is a truly unique enclave within the larger city of Huntington Beach, CA. This beachfront community is home to fewer than 1,000 people, and emerged as part of the coastal oil boom in the early 20th century. Residents now have largely forgotten about the oil boom and consider their town a gentle, calm, and civic minded place to enjoy the Southern California sunshine. The beach, and its adjacent 14-acre Green Belt, is the perfect place to spend a leisurely afternoon. If you own a property in Sunset Beach and are looking to rent it out, we can help! Those seeking Sunset Beach property management services must demand that their management company have an understanding of the local market in Sunset Beach – as it is quiet unique.
At Utopia Property Management, we’re proud of our distinction as the largest management company in Southern California. But more important than our size, we’re completely committed to developing and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with our property owners and their tenants. Some of the Sunset Beach rental services that we offer are:
Marketing your rental: It takes a unique person to effectively market your Sunset Beach rental, and our team of professionals will complete a comprehensive marketing campaign that will shine a spotlight on your rental. From local advertisements and high impact signage, to networking and web marketing, we’re confident in finding the right tenant – quickly. We’ll even place your listing on a wide variety of reputable rental website, all designed to drive traffic to your rental.
Prospective tenant screening: Finding the right tenant can make all of the difference between a positive rental experience and one that keeps you up at night. Tenants are often quite responsible and tend to treat the rental home or office like they would their own. Some renters, though, have a proven track record of not maintaining rental units and may even have eviction records on file. We’ll help you avoid these troublesome renters by conducting a thorough background and credit check. We also verify income and employment and collect identity verification documents.
Management services: After twenty years in the business we’re excited to be able to share our key learnings with our property owners. From establishing market rent thresholds to guiding you on effectively staging your rental property, we’re here to help!
Maintenance concerns: Your Sunset Beach property might need maintenance or repairs from time to time. Since this is a fact of life with any rental property, we employ a talented repair team who can complete most jobs quickly and at or below market rates. We operate under a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) and guarantee the quality of our work. Best of all, we’ll get to know your property well, making repairs quicker and easier than if you use a third party vendor.
Finances and accounting: Our accounting department is tasked with creating monthly reports for each of our property owners. A detailed accounting of each revenue and expense line item is combined to create a concise and easy to read monthly report. This report is sent directly to your Utopia web portal, where it can be access from any computer or mobile device.
Your Sunset Beach property is undoubtedly unique. With fewer than 1,000 people in the community, Sunset Beach is a tight-knit enclave that is peaceful and rejuvenating. Partner with us and experience the same sensation of calm as we manage all aspects of your rental property. Contact us today for more information!
