Serving All of Coto de Caza

In Spanish, Coto de Caza literally means “game preserve,” and for good reason! This community backs up to some of the most scenic natural areas in all of Southern California and boasts abundant wildlife including deer, coyotes, and mountain lions. The entire guard-gated community is exclusive – with single family homes ranging in price to well over six-figures. In fact, the Bravo television series “The Real Housewives of Orange County” is largely filmed here and in the surrounding areas of Rancho Santa Margarita, Ladera Ranch, Dove Canyon, and Mission Viejo. If you own an investment property in Coto de Caza and are looking for a property management company – contact Utopia Property Management today! Our management services are affordable, efficient, and effective – exactly what you need to transform your single family home in Coto de Caza into a revenue-generating rental property.

Coto de Caza property management services are available through Utopia, and we offer a comprehensive suite of services that will help you more effectively market, rent, and manage your particular investment home. Some of the basic property management activities that we will conduct as your representative are:

Marketing your property: We are the largest and most prolific management company in all of Southern California, with extensive experience in Coto de Caza rental services and other upscale Orange County markets. Our deep networks often help drive prospective renters directly to your listing. We also engage in local area marketing and advertising, and place listings on the most successful rental websites. These activities combine to drive serious results in a short timeframe.

Tenant screening services: Finding the right tenant is the key – so we undertake extra measures to ensure that your prospective tenant is the right fit. Thorough background checks help us uncover any derogatory issues that may be an early warning sign of potential trouble. Eviction records and credit problems often signal a poor choice in a new tenant. We also verify income, employment, and identity to make sure that the future tenant can reliably manage the monthly rental payments.

Management services: As your prospective partner in the rental market, we’ll offer all of our experience to help you seamlessly transition an existing, owner-occupied home into a rental-ready house. Our local market experts will also complete a thorough analysis of the area and of the subject property. This helps to establish a realistic rent amount so you can begin to calculate revenue possibilities and profit margins.

Maintenance: There is no reason for you to take the time to schedule routine maintenance and needed repairs – we’ll do it for you! In fact, we carry a general contractor’s license (Lic. # 792427) and employ a staff of dedicated maintenance professionals who can often complete this work in less time, and for far less expense, than most third party vendors. If we can’t, we’ll refer to our list of approved vendors who can manage these issues at a reasonable cost.

Accounting: We take the guesswork out of the financial side of the business by preparing detailed financial documents for you each month. A complete accounting of the revenues and expenses incurred for each property are listed – helping you to easily determine the cash flow from your investments.

We are excited at the prospect of working with you to effectively manage your Coto de Caza rental property. We will handle all aspects of the rental – from staging the home, to sourcing tenants, to managing payments, to completing repairs. In the end, our goal is to make your experience incredibly rewarding. Contact us today for more information!
