Finding Quality Tenants

A thorough tenant screening process is one of the most effective ways to reduce liability for your investment. We take the guess work out of establishing a tenant’s reliability with technology, tools, and data. Our comprehensive method includes verifying licenses, social security cards, and pay stubs. We also verify employment and rental history, run industry-specific credit reports including prior eviction history, and reach out to past landlords for references.

 

By placing the right tenants, we are able to maintain an extremely low eviction rate, typically less than 1%. To prevent further liability, we also offer the “Utopia Eviction Protection Program.”
