At Utopia, we pride ourselves on using more than 20 years experience to help property owners expertly manage their rentals. Our team can help you work toward maximizing revenue while reducing expenses to net a solid return on all of your investments. Our expansive range of services includes:

Advertising Your Rental

With the sheer number of properties available in the area, signs in the front yard often get overlooked by even the most diligent of renters. A local sign just does not capture the wide range of prospective renters looking to move into the area either. This is exactly why we utilize a mix of modern and traditional advertising methods to find tenants for all of your investment properties.

Tenant Screening

We have all of the interested applicants go through our comprehensive tenant screening process to find a good match for your available units. We consider the applicant’s income level, rental history, and criminal background results when identifying the best tenant for each of your open locations. Our screening process reduces the financial risks associated with renting out your properties.

Consulting Options

Our team extends their skills and knowledge your way with our management consulting services. Our professionals can teach you how to handle property staging and marketing tasks to find ideal tenants for your properties. You may also learn how to set rents and deposits according to local market trends and regulations.

Maintenance and Repairs

When your tenants call for maintenance or repairs, we will send out a repair professional to perform the necessary tasks. Our professionals operate under our contracting license (Lic. #792427) to meet all of the local repair regulations. Our approved third party vendors can complete extensive repairs on a regular or emergency basis.

Accounting Services

Our accounting team creates detailed financial reports, which detail all your expenses and revenues for each of your investment properties. Regular review of these reports can help you confirm that your properties are maintaining the expected financial performance each year. Access the reports through your Utopia web portal anytime on your smart phone, tablet, or personal computer.

When you need assistance managing your investment properties in the 91324 to 91330 and 91343 zip codes, contact Utopia Property Management for immediate assistance. Our team will set you up with the services you need to improve your confidence in the investment process.
