Serving All of City of Orange
Originally, the City of Orange consisted of 1385 acres of farmland bequeathed to a couple of attorneys as payment for legal fees rendered to the Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana. But that was well over a century ago. The original city square, however, still stands in the same spot and has now found a place on the National Register of Historic Places. As of 2013, there are some 140,000 inhabitants of Orange. The zip codes associated with the city are: 92862, 92865, 92866, 92867, 92868, and 92869.
When you trust Utopia Management to market and manage your City of Orange investment property, we’ll make it our priority to find an optimal tenant for you within a thirty day period. We create compelling listings on all of the major rental property sites, we interview and screen tenants, and we use our local agents in the Orange County area to shop your rental via word-of-mouth.
We know that you want to have a tenant that you can depend on to take care of the property and to pay his or her rent on time. This is why, at Utopia Management, we’re committed to utilizing extensive screening procedures to help you locate the ideal tenant for your property in the City of Orange. We use extensive background checks and credit inquiries – along with a review of the prospective tenant(s)’ rental and mortgage histories. If there is any problem, then we’ll know about it first.
