Serving All of Oxnard
The large city of Oxnard stretches from the Santa Clara River to the north to just a few miles before the Boney Mountains State Wilderness area at the southern end. The western edge fully extends along the Pacific Ocean coastline with a small break for the Naval Construction Battalion Center. The city naturally grew around the naval base as a place for members of the navy, and their families, to reside. The seaside location, subtropical climate, and proximity to Ventura attracted civilian residents, bringing the population to a high of 205,000 people within its 40 square mile boundaries. There are many opportunities to strengthen your real estate portfolio with properties throughout Oxnard.
With more than 20 years of experience in the field, the Utopia Property Management team can help you make the most of the rental properties within your portfolio. We will assist in maximizing your revenues while reducing stress and expenses. Our property management services include:
Advertising and Marketing
Successfully marketing your rentals involves more than simply staking a sign out front and hoping for the best. We employ a combination of online and local tactics to alert prospective tenants to the availability of your great rental homes. Our efforts allow tenants to closely inspect the characteristics of your properties before starting the application process. We strive to reach our 30-day timeframe goals for every rental we manage – 30 days from listing to lease signing.
Tenant Screening Services
Our team screens each of the applicants interested in renting one of your investment properties. This screening process involves a comprehensive review of the applicant’s identity, income, rental history, and credit information. We look for tenants with an excellent profile that minimize the risk of lease default, late payments, and eviction.
Management and Consulting
We provide consultation services to help build your confidence in managing your rental properties. Our team can help you learn how to prepare and present each rental home to attract the best tenants for that location. We will share market trends and industry information that will help you to set competitive rental rates, fees, and other lease terms.
We can dispatch repair professionals to your properties whenever those locations require maintenance or renovations. Our professionals operate under our general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) and complete all tasks in a minimal amount of time. By providing this service, we can reduce your yearly operating costs and keep your rental properties in excellent condition.
