We offer a huge range of management services designed to keep your properties filled, minimize expenses, and increase your revenues. When it comes to maximizing your financial returns on investments, partnering with a property management firm who understands your local market is crucial. Our expert consultants are well-versed in the subtle differences between each Southern California community. Our number one priority is working with you to minimize vacancies, while earning top-dollar rents on your investments. Some of our Home Gardens rental services include:
Marketing: Our refined and practical marketing campaign will drive prospective tenants to your listing, minimizing vacancies, and ensuring a quick contract. We employ traditional marketing methods combined with a modern web-based listing service to highlight your property until it is rented. We also market each listing on several top-performing websites for maximum visibility.
Tenant screening: You want peace-of-mind when renting your Home Gardens property, so we’ve developed an extensive screening process that weeds out the riff-raff, leaving you with financially responsible and trustworthy tenants with whom you feel confident. Background and credit checks help uncover convictions, credit concerns, or debts, while employment, income, and identity screening help determine financial security.
Management and consulting: Our Home Gardens market experts can provide guidance with home and office staging, transitioning from an owner-occupied building to a rental, and setting the best rental price for your unique property. With an in-depth knowledge of local communities, our property managers are a tremendous resource for property owners.
Maintenance: Maintenance and repairs are a fact-of-life in the rental business, but there is no reason to bother yourself with the burden of constant upkeep. We operate under a general contractor’s license (Lic. # 792427), which allows us to complete most repairs and maintenance jobs ourselves – often at less expense and hassle than hiring a third party contractor.
Accounting: The financial outlook and overall health of your investments are obviously prime considerations. Our accounting professionals will create comprehensive reports that detail all of the revenues and expense line items for each month. This report will be sent directly to your personal Utopia web portal, which can be accessed from any computer or mobile device.
