Serving All of Terra Cotta
Originally a coal and clay mining town – hence the name, Terra Cotta is now a quiet, unincorporated area in Riverside County. Terra Cotta was revived in the early 20th century at the hands of the California Fireproof Construction company which opened up a new plant in the area for the purpose of creating ceramic pipes. Today, Terra Cotta, postal code 92530, is a quiet grid of mostly dirt roads just north of Lake Elsinore. But for some, Terra Cotta may hold fantastic real estate investment opportunities.
If you’re looking to maximize the use and profitability of your Terra Cotta rental property, then you’ll definitely want to see what Utopia Property Management can offer:
Advertising Your Terra Cota Rental:
When it comes to marketing, ours is an all systems go approach. We begin by utilizing the very best the Internet has to offer in the way of rental listings – and we won’t stop there! Your rental will also be promoted tirelessly at marketing events as well as through local advertising channels. We strive to ensure that all the Terra Cota rentals we promote find appropriate tenants within a 30 day period. Once your property is in our hands, we’ll find the best of all possible tenants.
Qualifying Your Tenants:
Our thorough approach to screening prospective tenants is a rigorous one, but it’s worth every expense and hour we put into it. Through our comprehensive regimen of background checks, identity and income verifications, and credit evaluations, we’re able to locate the most reliable, hassle-free tenants that will make their payments on time and take care of your property as if it were their own.
Consulting and Management:
Whether you’re looking to transition your residence into a profitable rental property or you’ve suddenly acquired a property that you’ve actually never set eyes on, we’ll be there to help you through every step of the way. With our 20 years of experience managing properties in Southern California, we can advise you on setting the appropriate rental rate for the Terra Cota market. We’ll also handle rent collection and will keep your vacant properties show-ready at all times.
Repair and Maintenance:
We only hire out contractors if we have to, and usually we don’t. We operate as licensed general contractors ourselves (Lic. #792427) and tackle most maintenance issues on our own, efficiently and effectively. In the event that we do require 3rd-party support, we select our vendor from a carefully scrutinized “approved” vendor list.
You obviously want your investment property to perform well and you need to track its progress. Our expert accounting professionals have made that possible. Using your Utopia web portal you can easily track all of the revenues and expenses of your investment property to get a clear picture of its financial performance.
For over 20 years, we’ve helped property owners make the most of their rentals, and we have also developed a culture of high-quality service. Contact us today and experience how easy it is to own profitable real estate without any hassle.
