Utopia Management
The Quality Company

Serving All of Puyallup

The area of Puyallup was named after a tribe of Native Americans, and the name actually means “the generous people”. For those who want to live in an area that is small, yet near the bigger city that has everything that you may need, then this may be the area for you.

 

Many people who own property in this area are looking to get this onto the rental market. They know that selling this could mean sitting on this for many months or even years to come. Instead, by putting this onto the rental market you can almost guarantee that you will be getting a renter within a few weeks. And we can help those who are making this decision!

 

Who Are We & Why Work With Us?

 

We are a full-service property management company. What does it mean? That means we take care of everything when placing a home on the rental market. How did you do that?

 

  1. We make homes ready for the rental market. Thanks to our years of experience, we know what tenants are looking for in the area and can ensure that your home is ready.

 

  1. We promote this in the marketplace to find groups of residents who are interested in living here. Our goal is to get as many applicants to stay as possible so that we have a better choice for your tenants.

 

  1. We use a tenant verification service to ensure we find the right tenant. This service checks information about the past, rental history, and more.

 

We take care of all the day-to-day aspects of renting an apartment for you so you can relax. The idea behind hiring us to handle your rental property is that you can go about your daily life, as we handle all the complexities that happen with a rental property.

Utopia represents a large network of single family homes of all sizes and values.

With 25 years experience, you can rest assured your property is in good hands. Our years in the industry mean we’ve seen it all, and developed smart systems to screen tenants, manage expenses, communicate with tenants, and maintain properties efficiently. We understand local law and legal aspects of rental management so we shield our owners from unnecessary liabilities.

For residential properties, we offer an all inclusive 8% management fee, which is one of the lowest in the industry.  Unlike some competitors, we do not add on hidden charges or leasing or set-up fees.

ATTRACT TENANTS WITH PROPERTY MARKETING

Finding excellent tenants starts with making sure your property is visible and attractive.

We then list your property on all of the highly trafficked rental websites, including utopiamanagement.com.  Our dominant position in the marketing place and years managing rental properties has allowed us to develop a sizable referral database. This positive reputation for being fair and responsive means many potential renters check with us first to find their rental home. We are able to consistently rent properties priced at current rates to qualified tenants. Our responsive property managers complete the marketing optimization by being available and knowledgeable, with phones and emails always answered swiftly.

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.

Quality Maintenance & Repairs

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. This relationship translates to purchasing power to help Utopia’s clients get a better than market price.

Managing both expenses and income is all handled by our accounting department with use of your owner web portal. Tenants appreciate the ability to pay rent online, which also decreases delinquency.  All expenses and receipts are tracked online and available to you at any time.

If you ever have questions regarding your statement, you can contact one of our helpful accounting staff members.
