Whether you’re looking to rent or lease your apartment(s), condo, single-family home, or commercial property, we’re ready to help you maximize your revenue potential and keep more of the money you earn. Some of the Cathedral City rental services we offer are:
Advertising and marketing: You need to find a tenant, and our marketing plans help connect you with the top quality, pre-qualified tenants that you’ll need to support your rental property. We conduct local marketing and advertising, as well as a massive, website marketing campaign on the Internet. Combine this with our networking activities and we’re bound to find a tenant for your property – often within thirty days.
Tenant sourcing and screening: Find the right tenant and start collecting market level or higher rents by taking advantage of our tenant screening process. We’ll utilize background and credit checks to weed out those who don’t display the character necessary to become a Utopia client. Then, we’ll verify employment, income, and identity to ensure your prospective tenant is the right fit for your property.
Management and consulting services: With more than twenty years in the property management field, we’ve developed quite a reputation for local market know-how. Take advantage of this experience and leverage our local property managers to help you stage your property for showing. Or, allow us to complete in-depth data analysis and a physical inspection of your investment property. These activities will help us determine an accurate rent amount for your Cathedral City home or commercial property.
Repairs and Maintenance Issues: Let Utopia Property Management handle any potential repairs or maintenance issues at your rentals. We’ll act fast, and fix or replace anything that isn’t up to your standards. Sure, you could take the time to inspect the issues, contact several repair outfits, supervise the work on site, and pay for the repairs at market rate or above. Or, simply let us handle it. We operate under a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) and employ a team of professionals who will manage the process for you. And, we’re priced at market rate or lower.
Accounting and finances: to accurately gauge the financial performance of your rental unit, simply review the month-end reports that are created and distributed by our accounting team. You’ll receive these reports directly to your Utopia web portal, which means you’ll be able to analyze your financial results from anywhere!
