Consider Utopia Property Management for all of your home or commercial property management needs.
Our family-owned and operated management company has grown from humble beginnings in 1994, and is now the largest management company in Southern California. We’re known for our local market knowledge and expertise, our fluency in the legalities and contractual laws associated with rental properties, and for our lower-than-average management fees. We’ll handle all facets of your Solana Beach rental services, including:
Listing it, and marketing it appropriately: Over the past two decades we’ve been able to grow quite a referral base in our area. This leads to less hassle and headaches when trying to find the ideal tenant. Beyond this network, we also market your listing on numerous highly-effective rental websites that consistently drive business and increase awareness of highlighted properties. We’ll even market your listing the traditional way – with signs in the ground. We are often able to secure a rental contract with a new tenant in less than 30 days.
Finding your prospective tenant: It’s easy finding tenants these days – after all, the San Diego real estate and rental market is quite hot! The real challenge lies in finding the right tenant for your particular property. We go to great lengths to pair applicants with the perfect residence or business, and we’re quite deliberate in the lengths we go to screen these prospective tenants. From background checks to credit bureau reviews, employment and income verification to in-depth identity checks, we’re in the business of making sure your tenants are responsible and able to meet the obligations of their contract.
Management services: We’ll provide guidance on how to most effectively prepare your site for rental, and we’ll create an in-depth marketing plan to find a tenant quickly. We’ll also devise rental amount targets based on an analysis of the specific area in Solana Beach, as well as the characteristics of your property.
Maintenance and repairs: You shouldn’t have to worry about managing repairs and maintenance issues on your rental property. We hold a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) that allows us to complete basic maintenance or repairs on your behalf – quickly and economically. Anything that we don’t address can be handled by one of our trusted, third-party vendors.
Accounting: Let us create detailed reports and financial statements so you can effectively manage the revenues from your rental property. We’ll send reports each month through your secure Utopia web portal.
