Serving All of Pomona
By way of a local contest, this region obtained its name of Pomona in reference to the fruit goddess. As early income levels rose to record levels, Pomona gained the nickname, “Queen of the Citrus Belt.” Nearly 100 years later, incomes and property values continue to sit at affluent levels, making this region a lucrative area for investors. Beyond ample job opportunities, access to the seven Claremont Colleges, including liberal arts-focused Pomona College, attracts professionals looking to expand their skill set. The local Mediterranean climate makes this region a pleasant place to live with sunny weather year round and summer highs in the 90s.
Here at Utopia Property Management, we would love to use our 20 years of experience and knowledge of local market trends to assist in your investment property journey. We provide assistance renting out homes throughout the Southern California region. Our local services include:
Advertising Your Rental
With improved technology paving the way, we strive to use digital advertising methods for each of your managed properties. We post many of the advertisements online to reach an incredibly large audience of potential tenants. We also regularly utilize traditional tenant acquisition methods, including holding local marketing events and placing signs throughout the surrounding area.
Upon identifying several prospective tenants, we start the extensive screening process to secure a perfect match for each property. We strive to only place the very best tenants, showing a strong income, payment, and rental history, to reduce the potential for future problems. We verify income levels and search for past evictions to keep rental property turnover at an all time low.
Our management team can teach you how to maintain and promote your rental properties on your own. We provide consultation services to share knowledge about market trends, staging methods, and financial organization associated with managing rental properties. From our consults, you will gain the confidence needed to maintain control of your investment properties. The consultations may be scheduled on a revolving basis or just as needed to prepare for upcoming tasks.
When rental properties are in need of extensive repairs or routine maintenance, we send out one of our skilled contractors to perform the job. Our contractors are licensed (Lic. #792427) and trained to handle a wide variety of property maintenance tasks. We also maintain a long list of approved 3rd party vendors that can handle overflow tasks or complex repairs as needed.
Accounting experts on our management team produce monthly financial reports for all of your managed properties. The reports inform you of your investment properties’ overall financial performance in addition to breaking down expenses and profits associated with each unit. You can utilize the secure Utopia web portal to view and print the reports by logging in through any of your devices.
