Serving All of Highland
Nestled in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains, Highland is a thriving city in San Bernardino County with a population of 54,000 people. It’s a vibrant community, characterized by low crime, beautiful streets, and top-performing schools. The city is primarily residential, with a full range of housing options, from apartments and condos, to beautiful single-family homes. The median home price is $260,000 and rentals average just under $1000 per month. The nearby mountains offer unparalleled recreation opportunities like skiing and hiking, and the climate is blissfully mild year round.
If you’ve made the wise decision to invest in the 92346 area, we would love to partner with you. We have been managing properties in the Highland area for many years and would love to share our expertise with you.
At Utopia Property Management, we’re proud to be the largest property management company in Southern California. We’ve impressed property owners and their tenants for more than 20 years. Our company is family-owned and operated, and a great resource for Highland investment property owners. Here’s a short overview of the premium services we provide:
Tenant screening: Finding quality tenants for your Highland investment property is our first priority. We’ve developed a comprehensive screening process so you can be sure your tenants will be financially responsible. We employ both background and credit checks to prevent untrustworthy tenants from renting your property. We also use employment, income, and identity screenings so you can be sure that your tenants are authentic and dependable. Say goodbye to missed rents, damaged properties, and irresponsible renters.
Management and consulting: Our expert consultants in the Highland area know what it takes to be successful in the business. They can provide advice on home or business staging, transitioning your property from an owner-occupied residence to a rental, determining the proper rental rate, and so much more. Our management and consulting team is available to share their savvy skills with you; allowing you to maximize your investment with little effort.
Maintenance: One of the most tiresome issues with owning rental properties are the repairs and maintenance that goes along with it, but even turn-key homes need upkeep from time to time. If the thought of repairing your properties is daunting, you can rest easy. Utopia Property Management operates under a general contractor’s license (Lic. # 792427), which allows us to do most repairs and maintenance work in-house – which is a lot less stressful than doing it yourself or calling around for a contractor.
Accounting: Your Utopia web portal is your own behind-the-scenes window into the financial performance of your rental properties. Our savvy financial experts are charged with creating organizing detailed reports each month so that you can measure the success of your returns.
As the largest property manager in Southern California, we have worked hard to build an extraordinary company that puts clients and tenants first. We’d love to partner with you to manage your Highland properties. Contact Utopia Property Management to learn more about what we can do for you.
