Serving All of Anaheim
Anaheim is likely best known as the birthplace and current location of “the Happiest Place on Earth” – Disneyland. But beyond the walls of the Magic Kingdom lies a city that is as diverse as it is sprawling. Anaheim is the 54th most populated city in the United States, and boasts a population of over 336,000 individuals. Founded over 150 years ago by fifty German families, Anaheim has grown to a massive size that incorporates several unique neighborhoods and communities. From the bustling high-rises next to Angel stadium to the luxurious homes that dot the hillside in Anaheim Hills – the options are limitless. If you’re seeking Anaheim property management services and desire the absolute best in management – contact Utopia Property Management- Orange County today.
At Utopia, we’re committed to providing a world class experience for both our property owners and our tenants. We founded our company in 1994, and since then we’ve grown to become the largest property management company in Southern California. To do this you have to provide clear and consistent communication, an incredible suite of services and management practices, and a value proposition that is unbeatable. Take a look at some of our basic Anaheim rental services that will help you, the property owner, earn greater revenues and minimize the stresses of managing real estate:
Marketing and advertising: We enact time-tested advertising and marketing processes to help find your next tenant. To differentiate ourselves, though, we’ll advertise your rental on unique websites – all devoted to driving prospective renters to interested property owners. Our deep network of industry connections also helps to add visibility to your listing.
Tenant screening: When you’re seeking a prospective tenant for your property there are several key characteristics you’ll want to look for. First, are they credit worthy? A good credit rating uncovers a pattern of responsibility. Second, do they have any history of eviction, late rent payments, or other rent-related derogatories? These can be red flags when pre-screening any applicant. Lastly, are they able to meet the terms of the rental contract? We verify this information by analyzing their employment and income levels. The goal is to find the right individual for your property – not simply the first person who shows interest.
Management services and consulting: With so much to think about, who has time to manage every facet of an investment property? At Utopia Property Management – we do! We can provide guidance that will help you transition a property from owner occupied to rental-ready. When it comes time to set rent amounts, we’ll complete a local market analysis and do a full inspection of your property. These two activities are enough to give us a solid number to work with.
Maintenance: there is simply no time in the day to personally manage all of the usual maintenance issues that arise within your rental property portfolio. At Utopia, we understand that your time is valuable. We operate under a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) and have a staff of dedicated and efficient maintenance professionals on call at all times. We’ll handle this for you – often for less than you’d pay for a third party to complete the work.
Accounting: A full financial accounting is delivered each month to your innovative Utopia web portal. We’ll account for all revenue and expense items and provide a clear and concise summary of the financial performance of your property.
We are excited that you are considering Utopia Property Management to manage your Anaheim-based investment property. As the largest management company in Southern California, we’ve built a reputation for excellence – contact us today to see why!
