Utopia Management
The Quality Company

Serving All of Arroyo Grande

The area of Arroyo Grande is one that people are extremely interested in living in. With a population of around 20,000, it is still considered a nice neighborhood area that everyone feels welcomed in, with a downtown area that has those cute stores and boutiques that people love to visit on a nice, sunny afternoon. Due to the neighborhood feel that this area offers, many people are interested in making this their home. However, those who are looking at the market today are looking to rent. Many people are not looking to buy a home at this time, which brings a wonderful opportunity for those who own property in this area. They can easily turn this into a rental home!

THOROUGH TENANT SCREENING AND LESS THAN 1% EVICTION RATE

Placing the right tenant is the single most important step in rental management. Our applicant screening includes income, rental history, employment, and eviction search to evaluate for potential delinquency issues. We verify identification, social security cards and pay stubs, along with contacting prior landlords for recommendations, keeping the delinquency rate to a minimum. Our thorough screening process for potential tenants has consistently kept our eviction rate at less than one percent.

Utopia also provides our owners with the optional “Utopia® Eviction Protection Program” for further peace of mind.  As a management company, we have many procedures in place to assist in the elimination of potential liabilities.

Maintaining your rental property, as well as being available to deal with emergency repairs, can be a source of frustration for landlords. At Utopia, we have a staff of in-house technicians available for most work, under general contractors license (#792427), meaning we can complete work as quickly as possible and pass the savings on to our clients.  When necessary, we also have a network of trusted vendors for specialized work, some of which we have been using for over fifteen years.
