If you want to find the best possible tenants for your Santa Ynez property, then you’re in a position to benefit immensely from the expertise of Utopia Management. Our local agents will ensure that those seeking residential or commercial rentals in Santa Ynez will hear about your rental property. Once you employ our services, we’ll make it our goal to help you find the perfect tenant within a 30-day window.
The perfect tenant, in our view, must be able to regularly meet his or her financial obligation, must take care of the property, and must have a clean background. We begin our screening process with a rigorous investigation into the prospective tenant’s background, credit history, and rental history. If there are any issues, such as a history of eviction or late payments, we will detect these prior to signing any paperwork with the prospective tenant. To ensure that your Santa Ynez property is well cared for, we will photograph it extensively prior to the move-in date of the new tenant. We also always collect the first and last month’s rent along with an appropriate security deposit.
With Utopia Management, you don’t have to worry about a thing. We have 20 years of experience managing property in Santa Ynez and the surrounding areas. We will ensure that you’re aware of all local market factors that could affect the value of your property and that you set your rent at an appropriate level in order to maximize your return. We’ll take care of all maintenance concerns and rent collection.
We’ve found that completing maintenance in-house is less expensive and less of a hassle than outsourcing. Therefore, we’ve acquired a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427), and complete most maintenance projects on our own.
We are firm believers in the value of good data, this is why we maintain a rigorous commitment to regular, detailed, and accurate financial reporting on behalf of our clients. Our team of trained professionals will generate comprehensive revenue and expense reports and maintain an online database for our clients. Clients are able to access their financial reporting at any time—via computer or mobile device—through our secure online portal.
