Marketing Your Rental
To reach a large number of tenants in a short amount of time, we utilize local and digital marketing efforts. We seek out tenants through established websites offering a successful track record. Our team places local advertisements and holds showing events that put your property on the map. Prospective tenants arrive at the listed properties in droves in an attempt to secure the advertised unit. We hold ourselves to a 30-day contract-signing maximum by measuring from the original listing date.
Tenant Screening Services
In order to find you the best tenants for each property, our company performs extensive background screening services. The background checks confirm each tenant's identity, income, rental history and other important character traits. Upon receiving the results of the background check, we are able to rule out tenants likely to default on payments or destroy the property during the lease period.
We encourage our local market experts to provide you with consultation services on an as needed basis. During the consultations, you can learn how to prep your property for local showings or take flattering pictures for online listings. Our team members will also provide market specific information about setting fair rent levels or deposit amounts.
Maintenance and Repairs
We will send out qualified experts to handle all of the maintenance and repairs required by your investment properties. Our licensed contractors (Lic. # 792427) protect the value of your properties while keeping tenants comfortable in their rental home. You will be spared the potential stress by allowing our contractors and 3rd party vendors to handle all repair requests for you.
You can monitor the financial status of your investment properties using monthly reports created by our accounting team. The team sends the documents through the Utopia web portal for regular review. You can access the portal using your computer, tablet or mobile phone anytime.
