Serving All of Traver
Traver Property Management
Owning rental property is a pipe dream for many people. However, despite the fact that many media platforms report that more people are opting to buy a home, there are just as many people who are not ready to take the plunge into home ownership. Instead, they are looking to rent. They may want to rent as they do not see themselves staying in one area for too long, or they simply don’t want the stress that comes with owning your own home.
Whatever the reason, those who have property that they have been thinking about renting, now may be the time to do this. One thing is for sure, you want the professionals at Traver to manage this for you. But, why should you choose us?
Why Choose Traver?
Why do people work with us? What is it about Traver Property Management that makes us the best choice for you? It may be our years of knowledge. And we put these years of experience to use for you. Better yet, many people find that they simply like the way we treat our rental properties. While we are simple managing these, we are wanting our staff and the tenants that we help you choose to take care of your home as it should be treated, with love and respect. We do not endure having tenants that are going to cause issues and damages to these homes, because that is an extra expense to the property owner whom we are representing…and that is not something that you sign up to handle, it’s why you hire us, so we make sure that we are handling these types of situations.
We offer services that are meant to help you, the property owner, know that you can walk away and leave your property in our hands. All of our services are customized to the client that we are working with based on what he or she may be needing. For example, some of our clients come to us and they need everything. They need our expertise on what they need to do to make the home ready for the rental market, as well as discussing what they should charge each month. While other clients come to us with a tenant already living in their home and needing us to manage the day to day communications with the tenant.
Others come to us with a mix of needs ranging from advertising this to the market, to handling the day to day running. Whatever it is, we make it happen and we do this with practices that have proven successful on the market.
We have the utmost confidence that if you are looking to step back and want to put this home into good hands that you will find it with us. For those who are serious about getting a property onto the rental market, whether this is a residential or commercial property, we are here to make this process easier on them!

Thorough Tenant Screening
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.
- Exceptional property protection options for owners.
- Preparation, delivery, and execution of legal documentation for evictions.
- Optional “Utopia Eviction Protection Program” for additional peace of mind.
