We currently manage a diverse group of properties and have the experience and local market insights to make our Eastlake rental services a low-stress and efficient process. Our management services can help you see more rental income, less unnecessary expenses, and will help you avoid time-consuming and inefficient involvement with the day to day management of your rentals. We provide a comprehensive list of management services, including:
Advertising and marketing of your property: We’ll drive prospective tenants to your listing by conducting local marketing activities and advertisements. Then, we’ll place a rental listing on a wide variety of reputable websites that have proven successful in the past. Our deep network of rental affiliates often become our best source of reliable tenants.
Tenant screening and sourcing services: Finding a tenant is easy. Sourcing the right tenant for your particular property is the challenging part. We conduct extensive background checks including credit profiles – this helps us weed out anyone who has had an eviction or serious derogatory on their credit. We also check employment references and verify that income levels are in fact sufficient to manage the housing or commercial rent payment.
Management and consulting: There are so many ways that a top performing management company like Utopia Property Management can help you and your rental portfolio. From providing guidance on staging and showing your investment to helping set rent amounts based on extensive local market knowledge, Utopia can be your trusted partner in managing your rental properties.
Maintenance: Repairs and maintenance issues are frequent enough occurrences with rental properties that we’ve secured a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) and employ a crew of talented maintenance professionals. We are often able to complete much of the necessary work at any of our numerous properties – usually quicker and cheaper than a third party vendor. Don’t hassle yourself with micro-managing these concerns when we are able to do it for you!
Accounting and financial services: Our accounting team will create detailed reports that show all of the pertinent financial activities at each of your investment properties. We will send this information directly to your Utopia web portal – where it can be reviewed from any computer or mobile device. This level of transparency and quick communication is a hallmark of the Utopia experience.
