Marketing Your Rental:
We go the extra mile to ensure that the word gets out about your rental property. We begin with standard signage-based advertising and pushing word-of-mouth awareness through our long-standing professional network in Upland. We then attract even more attention to the listing by utilizing the very best the Internet has to offer in the way of rental listing sites. Our efforts ensure that we have the widest of all possible applicant pools from which to select, and our timeline objective is to locate, screen, and contractually commit your tenant within a 30-day period.
Finding the best tenants
We thoroughly screen prospective tenants – employing background checks, credit checks, income verification, and more. Our process is set up to exclude tenants who have a history of evictions, late payments, or criminal activities. We know that you want reliable, trustworthy people renting your property, and Utopia’s screening process ensures that’s exactly what you’ll get.
